Actor. Born Hermione Youlanda Ruby Clinton-Baddeley. In her more than 60 year career Hermione enjoyed success in all the acting media. Prior to World War II, she became popular in London stage comedies and revues due to her dancer's training and innate flair for comedy. In her film career she played memorable character roles, including assorted mums and slatterns until she died. She received an Academy Award Nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role in "Room at the Top" (1959). Her first US appearance came on Broadway when she replaced Angela Lansbury in "A Taste of Honey" (1960). She was also nominated for Broadway's Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play for "The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore" (1963). In 1964 she was signed by Walt Disney to play the maid in "Mary Poppins". The rest of her career was spent almost entirely in US films and television. She was best known in the US for her role as the bawdy housekeeper Mrs. Naugatuck on the television series "Maude" (1974 to 1977). Baddeley died at age 79 from complications of strokes. (bio by: Priscilla)
