Verna Bloom


Born - 7 August 1938, Lynn, Massachusetts, USA
Died - 9 January 2019

Brown-haired American actress of quiet sensuality, on stage until her late twenties when she ventured into TV and, later, films, where she never achieved the prominence her ability merited. For a while, though, she was busy in leading parts: Medium Cool (1968), Children's Games (1969), The Hired Hand (1971), High Plains Drifter (1972), Badge 373 (1973). Later film roles were somewhat smaller: Animal House (1978), Playing for Time (1980), Honkytonk Man (1982), The Journey of Natty Gann (1984), After Hours (1985) and The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), her last feature. Married to screenwriter Jay Cocks, she died from dementia complications.
