Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Celebrated star of the English and American stage, in films since 1928; considered one of the greatest theater actresses of her time by Tennessee Williams. Baddeley also had a wicked flair for comedy, especially on display in the bawdy, quick-witted and slovenly working-class roles she played in her later years. Baddeley may be best remembered by American audiences for her role on the popular 70s sitcom "Maude," as Beatrice Arthur's rather dumpy-looking, incorrigible housekeeper Mrs. Naugatuck. Sister of actress Angela Baddeley.
