Birthplace: Not Available
Austrian-born actress Vanessa Brown was on the Broadway stage from age 13 in Watch on the Rhine, and at the same time was featured as a contestant on the popular radio series Quiz Kids. Billed as Tessa Brind, Vanessa made her screen bow in the Val Lewton-produced study of wartime juvenile delinquency Youth Runs Wild (1944). She became "Vanessa Brown" for good with 1946's I've Always Loved You, spending the next six years as a popular film ingenue. In 1950 Brown joined the ever-growing ranks of movie "Janes" in Tarzan and the Slave Girl. She also appeared in the 1955 sitcom My Favorite Husband, replacing the series' original star, Joan Caulfield. Brown retired from films to marry director Mark Sandrich Jr. in the mid-'50s, returning briefly before the cameras in 1967. Vanessa worked on the 1977 satirical TV soap opera All That Glitters, and also had a recurring role on the still-thriving real soap opera General Hospital. Back in radio in the early '70s, Vanessa was an occasional guest speaker on the short-wave Voice of America service. In her later years, Vanessa Brown added writing to her accomplishments, penning two books and several magazine articles.
