She was born in Edinburgh in the family of a journalist and actress. After her parents divorced, she stayed with her mother, although she spent most of her time in boarding schools.

In 1960, during the filming of her last film, Crowded Skies, the actress started having health problems due to multiple sclerosis diagnosed with her many years ago.

By the mid-1960s, the actress became practically incapacitated and moved in a wheelchair. In 1973, unable to take care of herself, Frida Inescourt moved to a retirement home for a film and television actor in Woodland Hills, where she died three years later at the age of 74.
