Martha Rofheart

USA flag (b.1925)

Martha Jones Rofheart grew up in Louisville, KY, listening to her grandfather tell stories about Wales, land of her ancestors. Touring troupes with stars like Maurice Evans, Katherine Cornell, Alfred Lunt and Lynne Fontanne, inspired her to be an actress. After graduating high school at age 15, she auditioned for the Lunts, first step in a career that saw her play roles in Blythe Spirit, Arsenic and Old Lace, The Heiress, The Respectful Prostitute, and others.
