Born as Jytte Stensgaard, she moved to the United Kingdom to improve her English in 1963, she worked as an Au Pair, studied stenography and became a model for a time. She started her acting career in 1968 in the film La Ragazza con la pistola (English: Girl with a Pistol). She then played parts in such diverse UK TV-series as The Saint episode "The Desperate Diplomat" (1968), Broaden Your Mind (1969), Doctor in the House (1969/70), in which she played the recurring role of Helga, Dave Briddock's girlfriend, On the Buses (1970) in the episode "The New Uniforms" as Ingrid a swedish tourist, Special Branch" episode "Miss International" (1970) as Nina Sareth, sci-fi comedy series "The Adventures of Don Quick" in one episode as Flosshilda in (1970), and the part of Arlene in the Jason King episode "As Easy as A.B.C." (1971), as well as a larger part in The Persuaders! episode "The Morning After" (1971), playing Bibi a Judo instructress who assists Danny Wilde (Tony Curtis), "The Marty Feldman Comedy Machine" (1972), and anthology series "Dead of Night" (1972) as Gertrude Wickett in the episode "Bedtime". Her film parts include the Bulldog Drummond film "Some Girls Do" (1969) as Robot One, as well as small parts in such films as "If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium" (1969), "Scream and Scream Again" (1970) and "Doctor In Trouble" (1970). As well as appearing in the low-budget sci-fi sex comedy Zeta One (1969).

Her most famous role is that of the vampire Carmilla/Mircalla in Hammer's Lust for a Vampire. The film was the sequel to The Vampire Lovers which had starred Ingrid Pitt as Mircalla. The original film was an adaptation of Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, however Lust for a Vampire shared little with the novel and only used the vampire characters, and was thus a completely new story. In the film the bisexual Carmilla infiltrates an all-girl boarding school while falling in love with a novelist.

Stensgaard auditioned for the part of Doctor Who companion (Jo Grant), alongside third Doctor Jon Pertwee in 1970. Towards the end of her career she appeared in Pantomime and the stage farce "Boeing
