The TV personality gained prominence by becoming the gothic goddess, Elvira the Mistress of Dark on KHJ's weekly show, Movie Macabre. Before Elvira, Peterson was a showgirl and had small roles as a topless dancer in the 1974 film The Working Girls and as a showgirl in the James Bond movie Diamonds are Forever. In addition to acting, Cassandra was the lead singer of an Italian rock band, I Latins Ochanats, which led her to appearance in the 1972 comedy, Roma. Peterson eventually joined musical/comedy acts Mamma's Boys and The Groundings, where Elvira slowly surfaced. Peterson took it to another level when she auctioned for The Vampira Show and was offered the role. Thus Elvira the Mistress of Dark was fully born. As Elvira did not fit the 'Vampira image', the name of the show was changed to Movie Macabre. The character became a cult figure during the 1980s ad 1990s, with Peterson hosting numerous home horror movies, appearing in comic books and even video games.
