Personal Quote:

[2002 interview, regarding her abandonment of Broadway stardom] "Who wants to be up on the stage all the time? It isn't easy. You have to be awfully invested in the fame aspect, and I really never was. What I cared about was the discipline of acting, whether I did well or not. See more »

Trivia:

Was seriously considered for the role of Neely O'Hara in the 1967 film Valley of the Dolls (1967). The character of Neely was based on Judy Garland, who herself was the original lead actress in the film but was replaced at the last minute by Susan Hayward due to Garland's drug and alcohol habit. The part of Neely was later won by Academy Award-winning actress Patty Duke . See more »
