BIOGRAPHY:




TRIVIA:
  • Is perhaps best-known to a later generation in the atypical role of tart-tongued, German-accented executive housekeeper Gretchen Kraus on the popular 1980s TV series _"Benson" (1979)_ (qv) (ABC: 1979-86). The thick accent required of the character led many fans at the time to mistakenly believe Swenson was actually German, when in real life she speaks perfect English.
  • Son James Harris died in a motorcycle crash at age 26 in 1987. Son 'Mark Harris (IV)' (qv) is a film editor.
  • After training at Northwestern's famed Drama Department, Swenson made a splash on Broadway in "The First Gentleman" (1959), earning strong reviews and being lured to Hollywood, where she had strong featured roles in _Advise & Consent (1962)_ (qv) and _The Miracle Worker (1962)_ (qv). She later returned to Broadway, where she earned Tony nominations as Best Actress in a Musical for her work in "110 In The Shade" (1964) and "Baker Street" (1965).
  • Is a lyric soprano.
