Life Story of Sue Lyon

Suellyn Lyon was born in Davenport, Iowa, the youngest of five siblings. Her mother was also named Sue Lyon (nee Karr) and her father was James Lyon. Sue Karr Lyon was 42 years old when she was widowed, when Suellyn was just 10 months old. Her mother worked in a hospital to provide for her children, and money was tight. The family then moved to Los Angeles in the hopes Suellyn could help out financially as a model.

She duly got jobs modeling for JC Penney, and doing a commercial, which featured her bleached blonde hair. She landed small parts on Dennis the Menace (1959) and The Loretta Young Show (1953). Director Stanley Kubrick saw Sue on the show and suggested to his partner that they should see her for the role of Lolita (1962). She was signed by the Glenn Shaw agency, and Pat Holmes, an agent, brought her down to Kubrick for audition, and won the part of Lolita.

In 1964, Sue married Hampton Fancher III but the marriage, like the four that would follow, was short-lived. She was appearing at the time in such movies as 7 Women (1966), The Flim-Flam Man (1967) and Tony Rome (1967). She married Edward Weathers in 1983 but the marriage ended a year later....

Was friends with Michelle Phillips at one time and the two of them checked out a copy of the novel "Lolita" at the library, knowing it had been banned. Sue later stated that she couldn't finish the book because it was too complex for her, as she was only 12 at the time.
