Biography

New York City, New York, USA
Tony Award-winner Marian Seldes, one of the premier stage actresses in America, was born on August 23, 1928 to writer Gilbert Seldes and his socialite wife, the former Alice Wadhams Hall. She studied drama at the Neighborhood Playhouse with Sanford Meisner and dance with Martha Graham. She honed her craft with the legendary Broadway diva, Katharine Cornell, with whom she appeared in the play, "That Lady", in the 1949-50 season.
