Finnish actress Taina Elg's earliest professional engagements were as a dancer with the Sadler's Wells and Marquis de Cuevas troupes. She was brought to Hollywood in the wake of the success of fellow Scandinavia Anita Ekberg. Elg's first film role was in MGM's The Prodigal (1955) and she went on to play worthwhile roles in such MGM efforts as Les Girls (1957), which gave her an opportunity to display her dancing skills, and Imitation General (1959). More recently, Taina Elg was seen as "Nemesis" in the 1970 muscleman spoof Hercules in New York, which starred the inimitable Arnold Strong (aka Schwarzenegger).
