Thea Fleming was born Thea Catharine Wilhelmina Gemma Pfennings in 1942 (date unknown) in Sittard, Holland. As far as I am aware she is still alive.
She was a stunning beauty who worked steadily in films from the start of the 60's until the mid-70's. Despite scoring occasional small credited roles and a few larger ones, her career somehow never rose to the next level and the vast majority of her appearances were uncredited bit parts. She had greater success in fotoromanzi, where she often played leading roles.
In 1973, she married English musician Mike Shepstone, drummer in the popular pop rock band The Rokes and one half of duo Shepstone & Dibbens, and retired from acting.

Not enough Fleming!
There are still quite a number of films where internet sources indicate that she appears, but which I have not yet been able to find. If you have images of Thea in any of the titles below you know what to do.
- Mariti a congresso (1961)
- Canzoni a tempo di twist (1962) maybe credited as Thea Flammy
- Salome '73 (1965)
- L'assalto al centro nucleare (1967) as Huguette, maybe credited
Where is Thea?
There always has to be one... film where an actor is listed somewhere as appearing, but if she does then I must have missed her.
La regina delle Amazzoni (1960) - IMDb lists Thea as playing a dancer. While it could be quite possible that she is somewhere among the several hundred amazons running around, the chances of her playing a dancer are minimal, since the only dance routine is performed by an obviously professional dance troupe. I have been through this film on a number of occasions identifying actors but I have never managed to find Thea, though with Amazons of every shape, size, age and hair colour constantly filling the screen she could be among them somewhere.
