British stage, film and television actress Sarah Marshall made her feature film debut in 1958's "The Long, Hot Summer," but her most notable work was on Broadway, where she appeared with her mother in Jane, directed by Cyril Ritchard, in 1952. Enchanted by her talent, Ritchard next cast her in Gore Vidal's Visit to a Small Planet, which ran on the Rialto in 1957-58. She retained a life-long friendship with Vidal as a result.

Marshall toured nationally with Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, and received a best supporting actress Tony Award nomination for Goodbye, Charlie in 1960. She received the New York Drama Critics Award for her performance in The Ponder Heart.

Marshall also appeared on Broadway in Come Blow Your Horn, Dream Girl, Charley's Aunt, Idiot's Delight and The World of Suzie Wong, in which she met Karl Held, her husband to be. In 1972, Marshall and Held moved to London where she appeared in A.R. Gurney's Children with Constance Cummings, Applause with Lauren Bacall, and Neil Simons' The Gingerbread Lady with Elaine Stritch. Also while abroad, Marshall appeared in 1981 CBS miniseries "The Bunker" with Anthony Hopkins, Michael Kitchen, Julian Fellowes and Held.

Returning to Los Angeles, Marshall played opposite Roscoe Lee Browne in the CBS series "Miss Winslow and Son." Other television credits included "Star Trek," "Daniel Boone," "Get Smart" and "The Twilight Zone."
