Audra Lindley made her film bow with a blink-and-you-miss-her bit in 1942's The Male Animal. An established Broadway actress by the 1950s, Lindley has appeared in such plays as Take Her She's Mine, Spofford and A Case of Libel. Her TV work has included regular stints on such soap operas as Search for Tomorrow, From These Roots and The Edge of Night; she spent several years as Liz Mathews on NBC's Another World. Equally busy in TV's nighttime hours, Lindley was a regular on the 1970s sitcoms Bridget Loves Bernie, Fay and Doc. Her most famous prime-time TV assignment was as long-suffering Helen Roper in Three's Company (1977-79) and its 1979 spin-off The Ropers. She also appeared as Elizabeth Montgomery's mother in a brace of "Edna Buchanan" TV movies, and as Phoebe's grandmother on a 1994 episode of Friends. She made her final film appearance in Peter Hyams's action thriller Sudden Death (1995). Lindley was for many years the wife of actor James Whitmore. She died at age 79 from complications of leukemia on Oct 16, 1997.
