Margaret Gillespie "Meg" Wyllie (February 15, 1917 - January 1, 2002) was an American actress who appeared primarily on television.

Early life and career[edit]

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, she grew up in the Philippines, where her father worked as an engineer in sugar plantations and moved to New York City in the 1940s.

She has the distinction of having appeared on ABC's General Hospital as three different characters-Nurse Doris Roach (1974) who revealed to Lesley Faulkner that her daughter (Laura Vining) was still alive; Antique shop proprietor Hester Frumpkin (1982) who worked for Laura's kidnapper, David Gray; and a brief replacement for Anna Lee as Lila Quartermaine (1994). Ms. Wyllie also played several different characters on both Golden Girls and Designing Women.

In 1960, she was cast as Mrs. Shafer in the episode "The Captain's Dilemma" of the CBS military sitcom/drama series, Hennesey, starring Jackie Cooper as a United States Navy physician and Abby Dalton as nurse Martha Hale.

Between 1962-1966 Wyllie made four guest appearances on Perry Mason. Her most notable role was as Minerva Stone in the 1963 episode, "The Case of the Nebulous Nephew."

In the 1963-1964 season, Wyllie had a recurring role as Mrs. Kissel in eighteen episodes of ABC's family western series, The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters, starring child actor Kurt Russell in the title role. Mark Allen played Matt Kissel, her husband, in nineteen episodes. In nine episodes, four of the The Osmonds were cast as the singing sons of the Kissel family, all with given names of books of the Old Testament, Micah, Deuteronomy, Lamentations, and Leviticus.[1]

Wyllie was the first-ever Star Trek villain, the Talosian "Keeper" in the pilot episode, "The Cage". The character was voiced by Malachi Throne.

Death[edit]

Wyllie died in 2002, at the age of eighty-four in Glendale, California, from heart failure.
