Lilia Skala

Highest Rated: 100% Heartland (1979)

Lowest Rated: 36% Flashdance (1983)

Birthday: Nov 28, 1896

Birthplace: Vienna, Austria-Hungary

Galvanizing, stern-featured Viennese character actress with extensive Broadway experience ("The Diary of Anne Frank," "Medea and Jason") and regular if limited film and TV credits. A decade after recreating her Broadway role in the film version of the Irving Berlin musical "Call Me Madam" (1953) Skala first gained attention in features with her splendid, Oscar-nominated performance as the disciplined, argumentative but good-hearted Mother Superior who coaxes an itinerant handyman (Sidney Poitier) into building a church in the delightful sleeper "Lilies of the Field" (1963).
