Pamela Franklin

In 1950, British on July 30, 2017 at 10:15 am

Pamela Franklin made her screen debut at the age of 11 in the 1961 psychological horror film “The Innocents,” and owing to her own innocent yet precious demeanor, was often cast opposite more mature female leads. After a memorable performance alongside Bette Davis in the taut 1965 thriller “The Nanny,” Franklin blossomed as a young adult actor in the 1969 drama “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie,” earning a National Board of Review Award for her portrayal of boarding school student Sandy, opposite the film’s title star and Oscar winner Maggie Smith (Jean Brodie). Despite the strong start as an adult-aged actor, Franklin appeared primarily in B-horror films and minor guest roles in TV dramas throughout the 1970s. With her career on the decline by late-decade, Franklin voluntarily retired from acting in 1981. Hollywood.com.
