Trivia (10)

Best known for her role of "Mrs. Amanda Bellows" on the TV show I Dream of Jeannie (1965).
Though she played caring wives and helpmates, she never married in real life.
Prior to joining the cast of I Dream of Jeannie (1965) in the second season as Dr. Bellows' wife, Amanda Bellows, she appeared in the first season episode I Dream of Jeannie: Is There an Extra Jeannie in the House? (1966) as magician's assistant "Myrt", whom Capt. Roger Healey mistook for Jeannie's cousin.
Sister-in-law of writer William Wharton (Birdy (1984)).
Sister of Rosemary Henry.
Creator Sidney Sheldon mentioned in an interview that Henry was a good actress who was easy to work with. A casting director brought her in to audition and to meet him. Sheldon tested her and based on the screen test she got the part of Mrs. Bellows.
She went to Hollywood in the early 1950s and found her way into the choruses of several musicals. Producers began noticing, however, that her comedy skills were superior to her singing.
She was reportedly scheduled to become a semi-regular[citation needed] cast member on Three's Company after she had guest-starred in a couple of episodes in the role of Chrissy's boss, J.C. Braddock.
Originally, Henry never intended to become an actress, for she had wanted to become a singer. By her teens she was appearing on local radio.
Even though the censors made sure that Jeannie's belly button was never seen, Mrs Bellows belly button is clearly seen on the beach scene from Hawaii.
