She was !

The 'Big C' is no respecter of age [or anything else].

I didn't mention that she was born in Bombay, India to South African parents and then reared in South Africa.

She was survived by her son and her mother, and also her ex-husband, television actor John McCook, who is the father of her only child, Seth.

Can't think of any reason why she should get cancer so young....

Smoking is definitely a risk factor for cancer but playing footsie is not.

Being a trained dancer, she always knew how to pose gracefully & elegantly for a photo:

She nearly died before she did, she was mauled by an 80-pound leopard – twice. once, while filming Circus of the Stars and later during a promotional stint, when the same leopard attacked her. the later attack was more serious, requiring upwards of 20 stitches to reattach her ear.

That's Juliet on the right enjoying a joke with other cast members from G.I.Blues.
