Biography by Cammila Collar
Many remember actress Caroline McWilliams for the role of Marcy on the popular sitcom Benson. Born in Washington and raised in Rhode Island, McWilliams began her career on screen in the late '60s, taking on the role of Janet Mason Norris on the long-standing soap opera The Guiding Light in 1969. She'd stick with the series until 1975, and eventually moved into comedy, parodying the daytime TV world she was so familiar with on the series Soap from 1979 to 1981. She'd simultaneously appear on Benson and married actor Michael Keaton in 1982, giving birth to a son the following year. McWilliams would go on to spend the 1980s making frequent guest appearances on everything from Hill Street Blues to Cagney and Lacey. The next decade would begin on a bittersweet note for the actress. While she made a prominent appearance in the 1990 film Mermaids, this was also the year she and Keaton divorced. The actress remained on top of her game professionally, however, with a recurring role on Beverly Hills 90210, and later on the 2003 drama Judging Amy. McWilliams also found a tremendous niche as a director, staging critically lauded productions of Divorcons (Let's Get a Divorce) and The Smoke and Ice Follies. Tragically, the actress died in 2010 at the age of 64.
