Biography

The daughter of stage favorite Lillian Brainwaithe, Joyce Carey made her first theatrical appearance at age 18. In films from 1942, Carey made her mark in incisive character roles, playing everything from warmhearted lower-class types (Brief Encounter) to bitchy bourgeoisie (Way to the Stars). In her 70th year, she launched a new phase of her career as a co-star on the TV sitcom Father Dear Father. Active well into her eighties, Joyce Carey died just a month away from her 95th birthday. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
