Sherry Buchanan

One Eurocult performer of the 70s and 80s who intrigues me is Sherry Buchanan, seen in the likes of Zombie Holocaust, Last House on the Beach and The Heroin Busters. Specifically, was she Anglo or Italian?

Her name sound more like a British or North American one, but her first screen appearance was in What Have They Done to Your Daughters where she's playing a schoolgirl and looks about the right age, suggesting her to Italian, along with the lack of US productions in her filmography. So was she like Ray Lovelock, Italian but with an Anglo parent and name to confuse the unwary? Or is Sherry Buchanan / Cheryl Buchanan / Cheryl Lee Buchanan just a stage name and it's that her real name has never come out into the open?
