Personal Quote:

[about director William Berke, with whom she made several pictures] [He had] a round face, but wasn't fat--nor was he too thin. A gentle man who spoke quietly. A nice, lovely man who wore glasses--he wasn't tall or short, probably around 5'8" or 5'9". Nicely built and a nice face. See more »

Trivia:

Lives in the Hollywood Fairfax district in Los Angeles area and continues to make public appearances with Detour. In spring of 2006 played Guy Maddin's Mother in My Winnipeg (2007).
