Did You Know?


Her height (6 ft.) had an impact on her career. When she started out as a stage actress she was typically cast as mothers, even in her 20s. She appeared in several Shakespearean roles, such as Hamlet's mother Gertrude. Only once, according to theater critic Burns Mantle, did she play Juliet, and that occurred only when a very tall actor was found to play Romeo. See more »
