  • Listed in many sources as a Canadian actress, Kate Reid was actually born in England and raised in Toronto, later attending that city's university. Reid launched her stage career in Canada in the late 1940s; she first came to Broadway in 1962, replacing Uta Hagen as Martha in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. Her later American stage credits include Dylan opposite Richard Burton, and Arthur Miller's The Price. She was Emmy-nominated for her work in two Hallmark Hall of Fame presentations: 1963's The Invincible Mr. Disraeli, and the following year's Abe Lincoln in Illinois. Her film credits include the U.S.-Canadian sci-fier The Andromeda Strain (1971), the British Equus (1977; against opposite Richard Burton) and Louis Malle's Atlantic City (1980), in which she had one of her showiest screen roles as the faded vis-a-vis of onetime racketeer Burt Lancaster. In 1984, Kate played Linda opposite Dustin Hoffman's Willy Loman in the Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman, repeating her role for the superb 1985 TV-movie adaptation. Kate Reid's TV-series appearances include the roles of Aunt Lil Trotter on the long-running Dallas (1982-83 season), oceanographer Marion Jaworski on Gavillan (1982), and senior citizen's home resident Martha Cameron on Morningstar: Eveningstar (1986).
