Raquel Welch

Raquel Welch (born Jo Raquel Tejada; September 5, 1940) in One Million Years B.C. Although she had only three lines in the film, this image of her in a doe-skin bikini became a best-selling poster that turned her into an iconic sex symbol and catapulted her to stardom. She later starred in several notable films and television variety specials. Raquel’s unique persona on film made her into one the reigning icons of the 1960s and 70s. She carved out a place in movie history portraying strong female characters and breaking the mould of the submissive sex symbol. In 1995, Welch was chosen by Empire Magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in Film History.
