Stage, screen and television actress Nancy Kelly (1921-1995) won the 1955 Tony Award as Best Actress (Dramatic) for The Bad Seed, for which she received a Best Actress Academy Award nomination in 1957 for reprising her role of Christine Penmark in the 1956 film version. In 1957, Kelly was also nominated for an Emmy Award for Best Single Performance by an Actress for "The Pilot", an episode of the acclaimed anthology series, Studio One. Kelly, who made her film debut in 1926 (The Untamed Lady), would go on to appear in feature films through 1956 before concentrating primarily on television roles.

After making her television debut in an episode of The Silver Theater (1950), Kelly was seen in a number of early anthology series, and she made guest appearances on several series, including Thriller (1962), The Alfred Hitchcock Hour (1963), Medical Center (1974) and Bronk (1975), and appeared in two made-for-TV movies. Kelly was married to her first husband, actor Edmond O'Brien, from 1941-1942.
