Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Talented performer in films from the mid-1950s, daughter of famed acting teacher and co-founder of both the Actors Studio and the Group Theater, Lee Strasberg. A slender brunette most often cast as sensitive, vulnerable types, Strasberg has also acted regularly on stage and on TV. Many of her feature films have been offbeat, little-seen films of varying merits, but her more notable credits have included "Picnic" (1956), "Taste of Fear" (1961), "The Brotherhood" (1968), "Rollercoaster" (1977), "The Delta Force" (1986) and "Prime Suspect" (1989).
