British actress and screenwriter who is best known for creating and starring in the BBC and PBS TV series "Upstairs, Downstairs," which ran from 1971-1976. She and actress Eileen Atkins originated the storyline in 1971, beginning a five-season run in London; they were awarded an Emmy in 1975. A second series starring Marsh, about England of the 1920s and entitled "The House of Elliott," debuted on 7/12/1992.
Marsh grew up in WW II England, constantly surrounded by the sound of Nazi bombs exploding near by. It was so frightening that she went into nervous paralysis at age seven. Her mom put her into dance classes for seven years as therapy. Entering an acting career, she had her first big break in 1959 with a stage role, from where she went into a varied career in TV and theater.
She was married once on 4/02/1955 for five years, ending in divorce in 1960; Marsh never remarried.
