Alice Beardsley Biography (1925-)

Addresses: Home: 24 Locust Road, Pleasantville, NY, 10570; Agent: Harry Abrams Associates, 575 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY, 10019.

"My debut as the Witch in Hansel & Gretel was so memorable an experience, and so heady, that I'm sure it was the seed that settled in my heart to make me an actress forever. While filming Where the Lilies Bloom, in Boone, N.C., I was introduced to quilting by a lady in the hills with astill in the backyard and my life has been enriched by that hobby. I have made many quilts and never seem to tire of starting another. I also enjoy braiding rugs as our early Americans did. These crafts seem to suit my 100-year-old house in Westchester and my cottage by the sea in the Hamptons."
