Phyllis Love

( b. Dec 21, 1925 Des Moines, Iowa, USA - d. Oct 30, 2011 Menifee, California, USA ) Female
Phyllis Love made her debut on Broadway in 1950 as Julie Harris's understudy as the tomboy Frankie Adams in the Broadway adaptation of the Carson McCullers novel The Member of the Wedding. The part led to turns as Nancy Stoddard in Clifford Odets's Country Girl (1951) and as Elma Duckworth, a waitress, in William Inge's comedy Bus Stop (1955).

Her most memorable Broadway part was as Rosa, the young inamorata in The Rose Tattoo. Ms. Love played Rosa with a "soft radiance," Brooks Atkinson wrote in The New York Times, and she and Don Murray "attack their scenes as though no other young couple had ever been in love before."

In film, Ms. Love played Gary Cooper's daughter in "Friendly Persuasion" (1956), about a Quaker family during the Civil War. She also appeared on many television shows, including "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," "The Outer Limits," "The Fugitive" and "The Twilight Zone." She stopped acting in the mid-1970s.
