Promising American juvenile actress who started quite big in a couple of Bette Davis' critically acclaimed tearjerkers of the early 1940s. After making her debut as Tina, an emotionally depressed child, who becomes the object of Davis' affection in Now, Voyager (1942), she moved directly in the role of Babette in the Lillian Hellman classic Watch on the Rhine (1943), as Davis' daughter. She retired from acting while still a teenager.

She claims that after making the movie The Creeper (1948) at the age of 18, she abandoned her acting career because she didn't photograph well.

Later became a pianist, organist and choir director.

She and her husband moved to Spokane, Washington in 1994, where she still resides.

Personal Quotes

"I am the last surviving witness to the filming of Casablanca (1942), which was being filmed on the set right next door. I used to slip over there and watch it."

I was 12 years old, and had just come off of filming my first movie Now, Voyager (1942) and went right in to Watch on the Rhine (1943). We shot the movies back-to-back, because that's the way Bette Davis liked to do it.
