Phyllis Love

Actress

Born - 21 December 1925, Des Moines, Iowa, USA
Died - 30 October 2011

Dark-haired, earnest-looking actress, almost entirely on stage and TV until she retired from acting in her late forties, but best remembered on film as Gary Cooper's Quaker daughter in the 1956 film Friendly Persuasion. After studies at the Actors' Studio, she entered TV in 1949, followed by a film debut as a young delinquent in So Young, So Bad (1950). Although often seen on TV, she made few film appearances apart from The Young Doctors (1961) and it can be assumed that Friendly Persuasion came along too late - she was already 30 - to establish her in the cinema. In later times, she changed her name from Phyllis to Osanna.
