Personal Quote:

I have actually gotten to like fear.

Trivia:

While performing with the Trousdale Stock Company, she met her first husband, actor Victor Sutherland. See more »

Trademark:

She was famous for her blond hair, which was actually a wig she began wearing early in her career. She discovered that it photographed better than her own naturally dark hair, and it eventually became her trademark. Whenever she wished to be unnoticed in public, she would appear without the wig - using her own hair as a disguise.
