Personal Quote:

Irma had to be a virgin for the network. I guess if I noted any changes in television today it's the fact that a girl can work as a secretary in a series and not be cast as a virgin. That's progress. MW - referring to her famous "My Friend Irma" character See more »

Trivia:

Her parents divorced when she was only seven months old. Her father, Wally Wilson, died when she was five and left her $11,000 in a trust, which she eventually used to pursue her Hollywood career. It was her stepfather, Frank White, who raised Marie. See more »
