American actress in more than 80 films beginning in the 1930s and continuing well into the 1960s. Her mixture of Danish, British, and Native American heritage gave her an exotic appearance, and allowed her to be cast in many different ethnicities, from Hispanic to French and Asian.
In 1937, Woodbury starred in her first of several Charlie Chan films, titled Charlie Chan on Broadway. She also began appearing in numerous Westerns, portraying the heroine opposite some of the 1930s' biggest cowboy actors, including William Boyd of Hopalong Cassidy fame, Roy Rogers, and Johnny Mack Brown. Her most memorable role of that period was the lead in the serial Brenda Starr, Reporter, in 1945.
On 17 December 1938, Woodbury married actor and producer Henry Wilcoxon, with whom she had three daughters. They divorced in 1969. She married actor Ray Mitchell in 1971, and they remained together until she died on 22 February 1989 at age 73 in Desert Hot Springs, California.
