Enid Kent (born January 14, 1945) is a former American television actress.
She was born to William Kent, a German immigrant, insurance broker and refugee from Hitler's Nazi regime in the late 1930s, and Irene Tedrow, a veteran American actress of radio, stage, film and television, originally from Denver, Colorado.
A Hollywood High School graduate (and classmate of actress Swoosie Kurtz), Enid Kent explored the world of theater from an early age, becoming a participant in the Oregon Shakespeare Festival among other endeavors. Her college years found her attending classes at San Francisco State University, eventually moving to New York to pursue acting in earnest. While there, Enid met and married musician Hod David Schudson, and moved back to Los Angeles. After Schudson׳s death, Kent later married second husband Benjamin Sperber.
After this move, her career blossomed, and she became a prolific television actress. She played Nurse Bigelow, a recurring character on M*A*S*H. She also appeared in such television series as Family Ties, Head of the Class, CHiPs, Diff'rent Strokes, Eight Is Enough, Small Wonder, and L.A. Law. She works as a school librarian in Hollywood.
