Cassandra Peterson is an American actress born on September 17, 1951 in Manhattan, Kansas. A graduate from General William J. Palmer High School, she started as a dancer as well as a lead singer for Italian bands before she pursued an acting career. She eventually met the director Federico Fellini and was given a minor role for the 1972 film Roma. In 1981, she decided to take part on the TV film Gilligan’s Island and auditioned for the role Ginger Grant. The same year, she was also hired to appear as a host for Movie Macabre series. It was in 1988 when she wrote, produced, and even played the main role on the film Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. The said film gave her much more prominence in the industry even until these days.
At 62, Cassandra still looks beautiful and in pretty good shape. What’s the secret behind? Well, here’s what she told the Geek News MTV: “Actually I eat pretty healthy and I exercise a lot, so that’s pretty much my secret.”
She said that she’s a fan of Spinning. “I do a lot of head spins and I barf green pea soup. Actually I go about six or seven days a week, and I do lots of spinning, and I do a little weightlifting, and a lot of walking. I just keep really busy working out, because I’ve got to stay in that dress. Let me tell you, one little inch added to your waistline and you’re not getting in that dress,” Cassandra explained.
And when it comes to diet, she said that she’s very dedicated to vegetarian diet. According to her, “I got to say it really works out. I’ve slipped from time to time, I must say, but I mainly eat a vegetarian diet. It works for me.”
