Who is Meg Mundy?

Margaret "Meg" Mundy is an English-American actress. She was born in London, but moved to the United States at the age of six in 1921.

Mundy is the daughter of the Australian opera singer Clytie Hine who studied at the Elder Conservatorium of Music in Adelaide, South Australia. Hine married the English cellist and orchestra manager of the Metropolitan Opera, John Mundy, and they emigrated to the United States in 1921 with their two children, John and Margaret. After retiring as a performer, Clytie Hine coached opera singers and musical performers. Meg Mundy's brother was the Columbia University history professor John Hine Mundy.

In 1948 she starred in The Respectful Prostitute, but Dorothy Parker professed ignorance: "Meg Mundy? What's that, a Welsh holiday?"

She played the lead female role of Mary McLeod in the Broadway production of "Detective Story." This role was later played by Eleanor Parker in Detective Story.

She played "Mona Aldrich Croft", on The Doctors from 1971 until 1982, when the show was cancelled.
