The Emmy-nominated The Scarlett O'Hara War star - the wife of beloved US talk show host Dick Cavett - was born in Mississippi in 1936 and attended Yale Drama School in Connecticut. She made her name on Broadway, where she enjoyed a distinguished career in hits like Cop-out, A Second String and Tommy Steele musical Half A Sixpence, which earned her a Tony nomination for her performance as Helen Walsingham. Nye was also a favorite at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, where she appeared in 24 productions, including Cat On A Hot Tin Roof and A Streetcar Named Desire.
