Beverly Aadland (16 September 1942 – 5 January 2010): blonde actress with an ambitious stage-mother who allowed Errol Flynn to seduce her 15-year old daughter. Aadland appeared in bit parts in South Pacific (1958) and The Red Skelton Hour (TV 1959), and uncredited appearances in To Much Too Soon (1958) and Marjorier Morningstar (1959) before boyfriend Flynn cast her in the lead in his pro-Castro drama-documentary Cuban Rebel Girls. Flynn died 14 October 1959, in her arms at a party in Vancouver, Canada, when she was 17 years old. The following year Aadland’s more youthful boyfriend died in her house from a gunshot wound on his 21st birthday. She then shunned the limelight until her death. She was portrayed by Dakota Fanning in The Last of Robin Hood (2013).
