Biography

Detroit, Michigan, USA
Quick with a wisecrack or comically bemused look, character actress Phyllis Kennedy's slightly equine features greatly enhanced the drab, chatty Plain Jane types she played usually in humorous servitude to the leading lady. Born in Detroit, Michigan on June 16, 1914, she attended high school there and, following her graduation in 1932, found work as a clothes model in a local department store. Relocating to New York, Phyllis' first professional job was a minor role in a 1935 stage production of "Jane Eyre". Read more...
