Sarah Lynne Marshall (25 May 1933 – 18 January 2014) was an English actress, the daughter of actors Herbert Marshall and Edna Best.

She was nominated for the Tony Award in 1960 for her role in George Axelrod's play Goodbye, Charlie. That same year Marshall also had a starring role in Alfred Hitchcock Presents as "Poopsie" in "The Baby Blue Expression." Throughout the 1960s, she appeared in a variety of other television series, including The Twilight Zone, F Troop, Get Smart, and Star Trek. She guest-starred in three episodes of NBC's Daniel Boone: "Cry of Gold" (1965), "Take the Southbound Stage" (1967), and "Hero's Welcome" (1968).

From the 1970s until shortly before her death, Marshall appeared in numerous television series and in several motion pictures. On television, her only full-time regular series role was in the short-lived CBS sitcom Miss Winslow & Son in 1979, in which she played Evelyn Winslow, the mother of the series' main character Susan Winslow (played by Darleen Carr). Her final movie performance was that of "Mrs. Weston" in Bad Blood ... The Hunger, released in 2012.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

Marshall, along with her husband Carl Held, also served 20 years on the Western Council of the Actors Fund of America.


Marshall, aged 80, died on 18 January 2014, after a lengthy battle with cancer.[1][2]
