American model, stage and film actress. Starting out as a New York model, she moved up to stage actress in "The Diary of Anne Frank." Retired for many years, she returned to film in 1982 with "Table for Five."
Teenaged model Millie Perkins created quite a sensation when she was selected over hundreds of other applicants to play the starring role in George Stevens' 1959 film version of "Diary of Anne Frank." She was given a 20th Century Fox contract after her auspicious film debut, but "Diary" remained her career high point. Periodically retiring and returning to films in the 1960s, she appeared in "Wild in the Streets," 1968, which was scripted by her second husband, Robert Thom (her first husband was Dean Stockwell). Perkins has continued to make infrequent film appearances into the 1990s, notably as Charlie Sheen's mother in "Wall Street," 1987; and as the mother of Elvis Presley (with whom she co-starred in 1961's "Wild in the Country") on the 1990 television series "Elvis."
