Marion Lorne

Biography: Marion Lorne is known for playing sweet, befuddled little ladies in several roles on TV and movies. Born in a mining town in Pennsylvania, Marion made her way to New York, where she studied acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. She appeared in stock theater in Connecticut, eventually making her way to stages on Broadway and in London. Marion married English playwright Walter Hackett, and planned to retire after his death in 1942, but couldn't pass up a role in the play, Harvey. This led to a few rolls in movies and television. When Garry Moore hired her for his variety show in 1958 she asked him what he wanted her for because she didn't sing nor dance, he knew first hand her subtle humor would work. She remained with The Garry Moore Show until she got the offer for playing Aunt Clara on the 1960s television show Bewitched.
