Biography

This blonde American actress with the look of an eternal ingenue was working on Broadway and in TV when still a teenager. Her older sister Ann had arranged for her to have a walk-on in a musical in 1943 and her career blossomed. By age 18, Patricia Crowley had appeared in several summer stock productions and had the lead in her own TV series. Over the ensuing decades, she has clung to a career through a myriad of guest appearances on TV long after many of her contemporaries have been forgotten. Crowley (who was billed as 'Pat Crowley' during most of the 1950s), had her best adult vehicle in the TV adaptation of "Please Don't Eat the Daisies" (NBC, 1965-1967), in which she was the rather unconventional suburban writer-mother-homemaker Joan Nash. More recently, she returned to daytime TV as the matriarch Mary Scanlon on ABC's soap "Port Charles" (1997-2004).
