Jill Haworth

( b. Aug 15, 1945 Sussex, ENGLAND - d. Jan 03, 2011 New York, New York, USA ) Female
Also known as: Valerie Jill Haworth [Birthname]
A beautiful, petite native of Sussex, England, Haworth was discovered and signed to a contract by the director Otto Preminger when she was still a teenager. Preminger used her in the films "Exodus" (1960) "The Cardinal" (1963) and "In Harm's Way" (1965). In the first, she played Sal Mineo's ill-fated Jewish girlfriend. The New York Times wrote, "Jill Haworth is fresh and deeply poignant as a brave 15-year-old refugee."

Cabaret was Haworth's major achievement of her acting career. She played a hapless English expatriate in Weimar Germany in composer John Kander, lyricist Fred Ebb and librettist Joe Masteroff's musical adaptation of John Van Druten's "I Am a Camera" and Christopher Isherwood's "Goodbye to Berlin." As such, she originated the now classic title song as well as "Don't Tell Mama." The part that would have been her most notable film achievement—Bowles in the movie version of Cabaret—went to Liza Minnelli.
