Birth Place:
Los Angeles, CA


Deborah Raffin was the daughter of 1940s cinema actress Trudy Marshall. A model in her teens, Raffin turned to films in the early '70s, projecting an image of easily outraged innocence. Her largest film assignments included the starring role in Jacqueline Susann's Once Is Not Enough (1977) and as the (literally) bedeviled heroine in The Sentinel (1977). She also played Goldie Hawn's part in the weekly television version of Foul Play (1981) and was prominently cast in several made-for-TV movies, as well as the 1988 miniseries Noble House. In her later years, Raffin managed a successful book-on-tape service called Dove Audio. She died of leukemia at age 59 in late 2012. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
