'To Kill A Mockingbird' 50th Anniversary: Mary Badham On Being Scout, Gregory Peck And Losing The Academy Award

30 January 2012 5:43 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Fifty years ago, 10-year-old Mary Badham tried out for a role in a little movie filming near her hometown of Birmingham, Ala.: "To Kill a Mockingbird." The beloved adaptation of Harper Lee's seminal novel earned Badham an Oscar nomination, making her, at the time, the youngest actress to ever receive one. (In 1973, Tatum O'Neal became the youngest for "Paper Moon.") Not a bad for a young girl who had never even seen a movie before making "Mockingbird." For the release of the 50th Anniversary Blu-ray, Badham talked to Moviefone about her rather fuzzy memories of making a classic all those years ago, her memories of co-star Gregory Peck, why she quit acting, and what it was like to return to the profession (if only for one film) nearly 40 years later. Photos: You'd never acted before you made "To Kill a Mockingbird." What's the story of how you got »
