Life

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Seagram was the daughter of Harry Brower, a New York City police detective. She worked as a graphic artist after graduating from college. Acting on a friend's suggestion, she began working as a model. After someone suggested that she "looked like an actor", she studied drama for three years, which led to a small role in Shadows (1959).[3]

After retiring from acting, Seagram first sold commercial real estate. In the 1980s, she created Actors 2000, teaching acting in Hawaii. She later moved the school to Los Angeles.[3]

Seagram died of dementia in Burbank, California on February 1, 2019 at the age of 82.[5]
