Actress. A voluptuous character player, she was billed as Laura Elliott during her movie career in the early 1950s. Rogers is best known for her role in Alfred Hitchcock's "Strangers on a Train" (1951), as Miriam, Farley Granger's estranged and vindictive wife. In the film's famous murder scene she is strangled by psychotic Robert Walker, the crime reflected in her eyeglasses after they have fallen to the ground. Her other big screen credits include "Samson and Delilah" (1949), "The File on Thelma Jordan" (1950), "No Man of Her Own" (1950), "A Place in the Sun" (1951), "When Worlds Collide" (1951), "My Favorite Spy" (1951), and "The French Line" (1954). Born in Morehouse, Missouri, she moved to Southern California with her family as a child. She got the nickname "Casey" as a slugger in grade-school baseball, later changing the C to a K. In 1949 Paramount signed her to a contract and gave her the screen name Laura Elliott, which she used in over 20 films, but she reverted to Kasey Rogers after launching her long television career in 1954. This has caused some confusion among movie buffs. Rogers had the recurring role of Louise Tate on TV's "Bewitched" from 1964 to 1972, and she was seen in such shows as "Wanted: Dead or Alive", "Maverick", "Perry Mason", "Peyton Place", "77 Sunset Strip", "Adam-12", and "Marcus Welby, MD". Rogers' final appearance was in "Swiss Family Robinson: Lost in the Jungle" (2000). She died of a stroke in Los Angeles.
