Jan Francis in 'Dracula' (1979)
Jan Francis (1951 - )
Dracula (1979) [Mina Van Helsing]: Bitten on the throat by Frank Langella (off-screen); she dies some time later as a delayed reaction, gasping for breath as Donald Pleasence tries to revive her. She later returns as a vampire, and is stabbed in the heart when she runs into Laurence Olivier's wooden stake during a struggle in a cave. Her body is shown again when Laurence prepares to destroy her once and for all by cutting out her heart. (Note: This version reverses the usual roles of "Lucy" and "Mina," as it's usually Mina who survives and Lucy who dies.)
