Andrew Duggan and Elizabeth Baur, 1968
December 1, 1947 |
Los Angeles, California
Elizabeth Baur (born December 1, 1947) is an American actress. She is perhaps best known for her roles as Officer Fran Belding on the original Ironside and Teresa O'Brien on the CBS western series, Lancer, with Andrew Duggan, James Stacy, Wayne Maunder, and Paul Brinegar.
Elizabeth Baur was born in Los Angeles, California. Juanita Gless, her great-grandmother, was an early settler of California who came from the Basque area of France. Actress Sharon Gless is Baur's first cousin.
Her father, Jack Baur, was a veteran casting director at 20th Century Fox, and did not want his daughter in the industry. She attended Immaculate Heart High School in Los Angeles and was a student at Los Angeles Valley College "for a year and three-quarters."
Baur succeeded Barbara Anderson in portraying a female detective on NBC television's Ironside, as her character of Fran Belding replaced Anderson's Eve Whitfield. In 1972, she told a reporter: "They interviewed 100 girls for this role. Then they had 14 of us come in and read for the part. Finally they gave seven of us screen tests. I was really surprised they chose me." Two years later, she said, "Officer Fran Belding is the hardest part I've ever had to play, because she's so straight, so normal."
