Neith Hunter, Horror Film Icon

Neith Hunter victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Neith Andrina Hunter (born 3 December 1967) is a model and actress who modelled in the 1980s and acted in films and television in the 1990s. She was photographed by some of the best in the business and was widely recognized for her raw beauty.

Neith is from Angwin, California, near San Francisco, in the wine country north of Napa. She attended Galileo High School, and quickly found a niche for herself in the art world. Neith was discovered by Hubert de Givenchy himself and quickly became widely known in the fashion scene for her work for Givenchy and Victoria's Secret. She was at one time the girlfriend and muse of sculptor Robert Graham, and has been photographed by Herb Ritts and Mario Testino. If you aren't familiar with those names, rest assured they are about as big as you get in those fields.

Neith did a lot of work for Givenchy, and in her time also did numerous editorials and covers. She quickly took to acting, though, appearing as 'Doll' in a 1986 episode of 'Mike Hammer.' This led to a string of appearances in the top series and independent films of the day, such as 'Miami Vice' and the soap opera 'One Life to Live.' Neith specialized in horror films, and soon made her mark in films such as 'Fright Night Part 2' and 'Silent Night, Deadly Night 4.' She also was in several episodes of 'Silk Stalkings' as Gayla Everett, and also made a couple of appearances on 'The Red Shoe Diaries' with David Duchovny.

Neith will be remembered both for her acting (she was in the Daniel Mann acting troupe) and her association with some of the top talents of the day that she inspired. Neith was the model in Herb Ritts' renowned 'Neith with Tumbleweed' and 'Neith with Shadows' in his book 'Men/Women,' and she also was in coffee-table books from Matthew Rolston and Gian Paolo Barbieri.

The Duke Ellington memorial in Central Park.

Some of Robert Graham's most prominent sculptures, such as the Duke Ellington memorial in Central Park, were created using Neith as a model and inspiration. Friend Helmut Newton introduced the two.

Neith appears to be retired from both acting and modelling. She received her BFA degree in 2002 from the California Institute for the Arts. She married Warren Fahy in 2009. She has one child, with songwriter Andrew Scandal. We're sure she's as feisty and glamorous as ever. She's one of those natural beauties like Kelly LeBrock who burst on the scene, lit up their fans' lives, and then went on to live their lives. Good for them.

  1. Neith was not born in 1970, she was born in 1960 and I believe her birthday is actually in November. Somehow 10 years of her life disapeared.

    1. It's tough to find information about Neith. I'll make a change and get more specific with it if I can pin down the date somehow. Thanks for contributing!

    2. The only birthday I can find for her online is 21 March 1980: http://www.famousbirthdays.com/people/neith-hunter.html. Google has the same birthday. However, the usual places such as imdb and Wiki are noticeably lacking her birthday.

      It's quite possible the sources that I found are incorrect. I'll just take out the birthday.

    1. Thanks, Thomas. Actually, I now see that I typed 1980 in my previous post, I meant 1970, obviously it wasn't 1980.That is the year - 1970 - that the site I referenced gave.

      Anyway, thanks for the information. Sounds like 1967 it is. I figured 1960 was probably a little early for her. I'm just trying to be accurate. I'll put 3 December 1967 up and see if anyone else wants to dispute that.
