  • Una O'Connor

    From Wikipedia:

    O'Connor was born to a Catholic nationalist family in Belfast, Ireland. She worked extensively in theatre before becoming a character actress in film and in television. She often portrayed comical wives, housekeepers and servants.

    She was chosen by Noël Coward to appear in Cavalcade at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in 1933. She portrayed an Edwardian servant who transforms herself into a self-made woman. When the curtain came down after a performance attended by Hollywood executives, they exclaimed to each other "We must have that Irish woman. That is obvious". Her success led her to reprise her role in the film version of Cavalcade, released in 1933, and with its success, O'Connor decided to remain in the United States.

    She became a United States citizen on 3 March 1952. She died, having never married nor had children, in New York City from heart disease, aged 78, on 4 February 1959.
