More Stephen Boyd Clippings (including Monica Peterson)

It was nice to find another clipping of Stephen Boyd with the beautiful African American actress/ starlet Monica Peterson recently. Monica had first met Stephen on the set of  “The Fall of the Roman Empire”. She also appeared in his BBC biography “The Man Who Never Was” in 2011. I also came across photos of Monica attending the London premiere of “Shalako” with Stephen in December of 1968, and the below new clipping seems to be around the same time, or from a little later, maybe 1970.  I also found a newspaper clipping from 1968 indicating that the pair was out on a date in mid-1968 during the time Stephen was filming “Slaves”.

For more information about Monica Peterson be sure to visit her website which includes some very interesting candid photos over the years with other celebrities at

Stephen Boyd and Monica Peterson on the set of The Fall of the Roman Empire, 1964

What a handsome picture of Stephen from the set of The Fall of the Roman Empire! Monica Peterson, seen here, was an extra in the film. She went onto to act in Anthony and Cleopatra in 1972 (starring Charlton Heston). She also spoke about Stephen in the documentary “The Man Who Never Was” about Stephen Boyd from 2011.
