|Other names||Jean Carson|
Biff McGuire (m. 1960)
In her early British films, she performed under the name Jean Carson, but later changed her given name to "Jeannie" to avoid confusion with the similarly named American actress Jean Carson. Carson became an over-night star in Love From Judy, a musical by Hugh Martin and Jack Gray, and produced by Emile Littler, that played at the Saville Theatre in London from 1952 to 1953.
In 1960, Carson married her second husband, actor Biff McGuire, while both were starring in the Broadway revival of Finian's Rainbow. The couple toured together in 1961 in Camelot, with McGuire as King Arthur and Carson as Guenevere. Later, they performed at the Seattle Repertory for fifteen years, often together. McGuire and Carson live in Los Angeles.
