Born in 1934 in Lynn, Massachusetts, Tammy Grimes made her Broadway debut in 1955, as an understudy for the role of June in the play "Bus Stop." She was married to actor Christopher Plummer from 1960 to 1965; their daughter was actress Amanda Plummer. In 1958, she played The Flounder in "Clerambard," off-Broadway, and earned an Obie Award for best actress. She also earned a Tony award for her portrayal of the title character in "The Unsinkable Molly Brown." A frequent collaborator with Noel Coward, Grimes was released from her contract to play the witch Samantha Stevens in "Bewitched" (ABC, 1964-1972), so she could star as Elvira in Coward's "High Spirits" on Broadway, leading producers to recast the role with the then-unknown Elizabeth Montgomery. In 1966 she got her own show, playing a high-spending heiress, but "The Tammy Grimes Show" (ABC, 1966) didn't last a full season. Her second Tony came in a 1969 revival of Coward's "Private Lives." In addition to her work on the stage, Grimes had a number of screen credits in both TV and film, including "The Love Boat" (ABC, 1977-1986), "The Equalizer" (CBS, 1985-1989), and "High Art" (1998). Tammy Grimes died in October 2016 at the age of 82.
