Actresses You Wouldn’t Think Were From Missouri, But Are
I've heard it said that perception is reality. That's not true because I had a perception that some actresses were from Missouri and have learned many aren't. I've also discovered many famous actresses that are from the Show Me State that I never thought would be the case.
I'll give you an example of how I was wrong. I have always thought of Jenna Fischer of The Office fame as a St. Louisan. She is, but I learned she wasn't born there or anywhere in Missouri. She's from Indiana. (*sad face*)
Stacker just shared a comprehensive list of actresses that were born in Missouri. I highly recommend checking out their complete list, but here are a few that caught my eye.
1. Kathleen Turner - Born in Springfield, Missouri 6/19/1954
2. Doris Roberts - Born in St. Louis, Missouri 11/4/1925
3. Linda Blair - Born in St. Louis, Missouri 1/22/1959
4. Betty Lynn - Born in Kansas City, Missouri 8/29/1926
The full Stacker list if full of gems like this. Lots of ladies who acted in TV and film who began their lives within the boundaries of Missouri.
