    (October 14, 1936-July 14, 2006)
    Birth name was Caroline Nye McGeoy
    Married to talk show host Dick Cavett (1964-2006)
    Acted in 'The Group (1966),' 'The Seduction of Joe Tynan (1979),' 'Creepshow (1982),' 'Too Scared to Scream (1985)' and 'Hello Again (1987)'
    Portrayed Susan Piper (1984) and Carrie Carruthers (2003-04) on the TV soap 'The Guiding Light'
    Starred along with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in the 1973 TV movie 'Divorce His - Divorce Hers'
    Died in Manhattan of lung cancer at age 69
    She smoked.
    This caused her voice to be deep, throaty and compared to Tallulah Bankhead (whom she portrayed).
    After her character was killed off in quicksand on 'The Guiding Light' she was recast as another character 20 years later.
    She brought one of her dogs to a dog birthday party hosted by NY Post gossip columnist Cindy Adams.
    Years of smoking led to lung cancer and ultimately ended her life.
    She met and later married Cavett while both were attending Yale School of Drama.
    She's been on Broadway several times and was nominated for a Tony for her work in 'Half a Sixpence' in 1965.
    She wrote a humorous feature article for Time magazine about her experience working with Taylor and Burton.
    When her house, designed by famed architect Stanford White, burned down in 1997 she had it restored as an exact replica.
    She was married to Cavett for 46 years and he is her only known survivor.
