A one-time dancer and choreographer, American actress Sudie Bond made her Broadway debut in Summer and Smoke (1952). While she played plenty of films, notably the character of Thelma Rice in Silkwood (1983), she was most visibly employed on television. Bond played Violet Stapleton on the longrunning CBS daytime drama Guiding Light, a role eventually taken over by Kate Wilkinson. She valiantly portrayed Paul Lynde's mother on the 1972 prime time sitcom Temperatures Rising. And from 1980 through 1981, Bond was seen as Polly Holliday's mother on Flo, the briefly popular spinoff of Alice. The actress toted up additional TV credits on such series as Maude, Mary Hartman Mary Hartman and Benson. Sudie Bond died in her New York City apartment, shortly after completing a performance of the off-Broadway play The Foreigner.
