  • 1975
    Age 30
    In 1975, she appeared opposite Peter Sellers in the comedy The Return of the Pink Panther as Lady Claudine Lytton.
    More Details Hide Details It is frequently claimed that her tendency to break into uncontrollable laughter at Sellers' antics as Inspector Clouseau spoiled many takes. The final print of the film repeatedly shows Schell attempting to stifle laughter at Sellers' behaviour, both at the Lytton residence and during the nightclub bar scene. Although these scenes are frequently offered as classic examples of corpsing, Schell has maintained in interviews that she considered it in character for Lady Lytton to be amused by Clouseau, whom she does not see as a serious threat (made clear during her banter with her on-screen husband at the film's climax in the character's hotel room). Schell's first TV credit was Till Eulenspiegel (1967), a West German comedy in which she played Nele and was billed as Katherina von Schell. Schell spent much of her career in British television, appearing in more than 47 series spanning a period of nearly 30 years. She played regular roles in series such as The Adventurer, One by One, Mog and Wish Me Luck, in addition to many guest appearances, including The Persuaders! The Troubleshooters, Arthur of the Britons, Return of the Saint, The Sweeney, The Onedin Line, The Gentle Touch, Lovejoy, Bergerac, The Bill,Howards' Way and "The Search for the Nile".
