Personal Quote:

Basically I'm a career girl. I want to prove myself as an actress. Maybe I won't . . . But I'll have to search until I do. I'll do it--or die trying. I've got lots to learn about pictures . . . I've worked hard. When I know I haven't given my best to a scene, I suffer. See more »


An excellent swimmer, she won a number of swimming prizes. She later modeled bathing suits in Southern California and then professionally in New York through the Conover Agency. See more »
