Actress. She is best remembered for her haunting performance in "David and Lisa" (1962), as a schizophrenic teen who speaks only in rhymes. She received a Golden Globe nomination for this, her film debut. Margolin was born in Manhattan. She went straight to Broadway after graduating from New York's High School of the Performing Arts and scored a Tony nomination playing a troubled youth in "Daughter of Silence" (1961). On the strength of this she was given the co-starring role in "David and Lisa". Despite this auspicious start her Hollywood career never really took off. Margolin was effective in two Woody Allen comedies, "Take the Money and Run" (1969) and "Annie Hall" (as Woody's second wife, 1977), and had a rare lead in the thriller "Last Embrace" (1979), but by the 1970s she was seen primarily in occasional TV movies and series guest spots. She died of cancer at 50. Her other big screen credits include "The Greatest Story Ever Told" (1965), "Morituri" (1965), "Nevada Smith" (1966), "Buona Sera Mrs. Campbell" (1968), "Your Three Minutes Are Up" (1973), "Distant Thunder" (1988), and "Ghostbusters II" (1989). From 1979 until her death Margolin was married to actor Ted Wass. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
