But that wasn't her only big role.

She also featured in The Perils of Gwendoline and After Midnight.

She started in the entertainment industry on a game show.

When she starred on To Tell The Truth in 1976, aged just 15.

Kitaen also featured in a selection of music videos.

Perhaps most famously, she appeared in Whitesnake's Is This Love, and Here I Go Again.

Kitaen dated Ratt guitarist Robbin Crosby while she was still in high school.

And then she travelled with the band out to LA in the late 70s.

However her life was full of ups and downs.

Back in 1989, Kitaen married Whitesnake's lead singer, David Coverdale - however the marriage was short lived and ended after just two years.

Later she was married to baseball star Chuck Finley.

And she had two daughters with him.

However their marriage didn't last long either.

Finley claimed she repeatedly kicked him in the face with her high heels and she was charged with domestic violence.

Those charges were later dismissed.
