Profile Bio Text
Born in coastal Savannah, Georgia and brought up in the southwestern Georgia/Alabama border town of Bainbridge, Miriam Hopkins spent most of her formative years with her maternal grandmother, a writer. She received her secondary education in Barre, Vermont and then Syracuse University. She went to New York City to become a ballet dancer, but instead gravitated towards Broadway revues and vaudeville instead. After several years on the stage as a successful Broadway actress, she joined Paramount in 1930 and became one of Hollywood`s top-ranking stars of that decade. She returned to the stage as her movie career slowed in the 40s. During the 50s & 60s she added television to her repertoire, guesting on dramatic series, including "Route 66" & "The Outer Limits". She died from a heart attack in 1972.
