Biography

London, England, UK
Brenda Forbes was best known for her distinguished career on the Broadway stage, where she first made an indelible impression as Elizabeth Barrett's (Katharine Cornell's) maid Wilson in 'The Barretts of Wimpole Street' (1935). Born to a theatrical family, Brenda left her native England while in her teens to join her mother (Mary Forbes), who already worked in Hollywood as a character actress.
