Hide Profile

Jane Powell was an English actress based primarily in London. Born in Kent and raised by her father, an Army sergeant, the colorful anecdotes related about her mysterious and undocumented youth suggest distress and disgrace. She eventually became an actress, relying on her strong physical presence, fine voice, and handsome, expressive face in lieu of any training, and became a reliable supporting player capable of leading roles.
