  • Actress Brenda Forbes had two film careers; the first as young leading and supporting lady during the '30s and '40s, and the second as an elderly character actress of the '80s and '90s. The London-born Forbes was the daughter of actress Mary Forbes. Her brother, Ralph Forbes, acted too. Forbes launched her own acting career shortly after she moved to Hollywood with her mother. The pretty teen made her debut on the Southern California stage. Forbes' early film credits include The Perfect Gentleman (1935) and The White Cliffs of Dover (1944). When film offers slowed, Forbes turned to the stage. She returned to sporadically appear in films in the mid-'80s. Credits from that period include a trio of television films in which she starred opposite Katharine Hepburn. Laura Lansing Slept Here (1988) is among that trilogy.
