Profile Bio Text
Nancy Dow (born July 22, 1936) is an American actress who appeared in a brief group of films. She was married to Greek American actor John Aniston with whom she had a daughter, actress Jennifer Aniston (born February 11, 1969).
Nancy Dow was born in New York City, one of six daughters of Louise (née Grieco) and Gordon McLean Dow. Her maternal grandfather, Louis Grieco, was an Italian immigrant; her other ancestry includes Scottish, Irish and Greek. Dow was also married to John T. "Jack" Melick, Jr., a pianist-bandleader currently based in Dallas, Texas, from 1956 to 1961. They had a son, John T. Melick III, an Assistant Director and Second Unit Director in Hollywood, California.
Dow and her daughter were estranged for nine years, largely because Dow wrote a book about their relationship, entitled From Mother and Daughter to Friends: A Memoir (1999). In 2005, after Aniston's divorce from Brad Pitt, she and her mother reportedly reconciled. Aniston described the progress of her new relationship with her mother as "baby steps and soon to be a grandmother".
