      Inga Swenson

      Inga Swenson

      Highest Rated: 96% The Miracle Worker (1962)

      Lowest Rated: 20% Lipstick (1976)

      Birthday: Dec 29, 1932

      Birthplace: Omaha, Nebraska, USA

      A schooled stage actress, Inga Swenson became nationally known as the formidable Gretchen Kraus, bane of Robert Guillaume's existence on the long-running ABC series "Benson" (1979-1986). She so convincingly played the German-born housekeeper that some might find it difficult to believe she was born and raised in Omaha, NE. Swenson later played the matriarch Maude Hazzard on "North and South" (ABC, 1985) and its sequel, and Matt Frewer's mother on "Doctor, Doctor" (CBS, 1990-1991).
