Viola Harris

Actress

Born - 5 July 1926, Baltimore, Maryland, USA
Died - 23 August 2017

Underused and undervalued, this full-faced, fair-haired American small-part player reached the crest of her career at 84 with her poignant performance as a reclusive old lady in the award-winning short film The Secret Friend. But otherwise blink and you might often miss her in a TV (from 1953) and film career spanning six decades: High School Hellcats (1958), Don't Knock the Twist (1962), The Slender Thread (1965), Funny Girl (1968), Blume in Love (1973), Whiffs (1975), Fire Sale (1977), Black Tigers (1979), That's Adequate (1989), Deconstructing Harry (1997), Crooks (2002), The Amazing Floydini (2004), Choke (2008), Sex and the City 2 (2010), The Other Guys (2010) and My Dead Boyfriend (2016), her last, at the age of 90.
