Peggy Rea

Actress

Born - 21 March 1921, Los Angeles, California, USA
Died - 5 February 2011

Merry, matronly character actress, a pin-up blonde in her younger days, but hefty and hearty by the time she assumed regular roles in TV's hit comedy series I Love Lucy in the early 1950s. From the 1960s, she interrupted her busy TV schedule to appear in cameo roles in a few films: 7 Faces of Dr Lao (1964), Strange Bedfellows (1965), the Russian shot-putter in Walk Don't Run (1966), Valley of the Dolls (1967), The Learning Tree (1969), What's the Matter with Helen? (1971), Lipstick (1976), then lots more TV, including the man-eating Lulu Hogg on The Dukes of Hazzard. Her last theatrical movies were In Country (1989), Love Field (1992), Made in America (1993) and Devil in a Blue Dress (1995). She died from congestive heart failure.
