Internationally acknowledged as one of the world's most beautiful women, Britt was born in Stockholm, Sweden. Her career was launched at the age of fifteen when she appeared in a toothpaste commercial. She then attended drama school for two years and gained acting experience as a member of a touring theatre company.

A small role in an Alberto Sordi movie in Sweden led to her first feature, Il Commendante, in Rome. The next stop was in London for the lead in the television drama, A Cold Peace. Then it was back to Rome to star with Peter Sellers in After the Fox, directed by Vittorio De Sica.

Britt has since starred in over thirty feature films, including The BoBo with Peter Sellers, The Double Man with Yul Brynner, The night They Raided Minsky's, with Jason Robards, Percy  with Hywel Bennett, Machine Gun McCain with John Cassavetes, Baxter with Patricia Neal, The Man With the Golden Gun with Roger Moore, Royal Flash with Malcolm McDowell, The Wicker Man with Edward Woodward, Get Carter with Michael Caine and Scandal with John Hurt.

1978 saw Britt take to the stage in London's West End to star in a new play, Mate. Later that year she began to work on her autobiography, True Britt, which was published in Europe in 1980 and in the U.S. in 1981. Her second book, Sensual Beauty, was published internationally in 1984. Her first novel, Sweet life, was published in Sweden in 1993 and in England in 1994.

Britt has made countless television appearances around the world, including miniseries, specials, variety shows and episodic TV.  Britt has appeared in many comedy shows in the UK, including Absolutely Fabulous and Noel's House Party. She recorded two highly successful Oprah Winfrey type talk shows for Swedish television Only with Britt  .
Her interest in health and physical fitness led to the release of her own exercise video, Britt Fit, in 1992. Also in that year Britt made her first appearance in pantomime, playing the Genie of the Ring in Aladdin at the Hippodrome in Birmingham, followed by regular panto appearances over the years. Britt did an extensive tour of Great Britain with Eric Sykes in Run For Your Wife followed by another extensive tour with Victor Spinetti and Su Pollard in See How They Run.

In 1999, Britt did a three-month tour of Australia with September Tide by Daphne du Maurier, and in 2002 she toured with Neil Stacey and Giles Watling in Dragon Variation. In 2005 she again toured with Giles Watling and Sabrina Franklin in Just Desserts.

In Autumn 2007 Britt toured in Grumpy Old Women with Denise Black and Dillie Keane. In the Summer of 2008 Britt had a very successful run at The Edinburgh Festival in her one woman show Britt on Britt.

In 2011 year she co wrote, with Victor Spinetti, a new version of her one woman show, An Audience With Britt Ekland, which he also directed. She did a short tour of the UK and hopes to take it out on the road again 2012.

Over the years, Britt has also become a pantomime regular performing in Cinderalla, Jack & The Beanstalk and more recently as the Wicked Fairy in Sleeping Beauty at the Theatre Royal, Windsor.
