Biography

British actress Rosalind Ivan gained most of her fame on the Broadway and London stages, but she also appeared in several memorable Hollywood films. At age ten, Ivan was a musical prodigy who gave piano recitals in London. This early experience performing led to her become a distinguished character actress in British Theater. In 1912, she first appeared on Broadway. In addition to acting, Ivan also wrote magazine articles, and book reviews; in 1927, she translated The Brothers Karamazov for a Theatre Guild production. In film, she first gained notice for her portrayal of a nagging wife in The Suspect (1945). This led her to be cast as unpleasant women in several other films; she was so convincing in her roles that some in Hollywood called her "Ivan the Terrible." ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
