Tyra Vaughn

Dancer/actress

Born - 13 March 1923, Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA
Died - 9 August 2015

Lively, cheerful-looking American dancer and dance instructor with a mass of blonde curls; after leaving films and TV, she became a dance teacher for the remainder of her career. Her time in films, however, was almost entirely spent playing dancers, dance-hall girls, showgirls and Goldwyn Girls. After a debut in The Harvey Girls (1945), she could be spotted by the sharp-eyed in Three Little Girls in Blue (1946), The Kid from Brooklyn (1946), Shadows Over Chinatown (1946, her only speaking role), Trail Street (1947), Escape Me Never (1947), Up in Central Park (1948), It's Magic (1948), On the Town (1949), Fighting Man of the Plains (1949), Duchess of Idaho (1950), On the Riviera (1951), Meet Me After the Show (1951), Singin' in the Rain (1952), April in Paris (1952), Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) and How to Marry a Millionaire (1953), her last, although she played a dozen or more genuine acting roles on TV until 1957.
