The Broadway wunderkind Julie Harris was found dead in her Massachusetts home this past Saturday, ending a record career.

Julie won an astounding 5 Tony Awards for best actress in a play, as well as a 6th Tony, which honored her with a lifetime achievement award.

The late, great actress was best known for her roles on stage and screen, that ranged from Sally Bowles in I Am a Camera, to Emily Dickinson in The Belle of Amherst, to Abra in East of Eden, playing opposite James Dean (not the porn star).

We wish her family all the best, as she takes this last and final bow! What a sad closing curtain to a long, successful career.

    PerezHilton.com - the place to read old news!
    She died 2 days ago, you moron! Why are you announcing it like you're telling us news that just came in?

    Brilliant actress
    I am a Camera is very rarely shown, but is a must see for movie lovers
    It seems very tame by todays standards, but there was a time every Catholic was warned to stay away from that movie

    Not the porn star. My fAVORITE part of this post. For all the young people who read this blog who have no film history prior to 1997? I doubt they even know who Julie Harris was, much less James Dean.
