MINI BIO:

She made her first film, On the Waterfront, at the age of 30 (fortunately she looked very young for her age) and won an Academy Award for it. Proper casting for her, however, proved elusive and she has not always made the impact that she might.

Eva Marie Saint Facts
Mother of Laurette Hayden

Has 3 grandchildren.

Got the part of Edie Doyle in On the Waterfront (1954) over Elizabeth Montgomery. Director Elia Kazan, in his autobiography "A Life," says that the choice of an actress to play the part was narrowed down to Elizabeth Montgomery and Saint, but there were also some qualms about Saint playing a teen at age 30. Although Montgomery was fine in her screen test, there was an air of finishing school about her. Kazan thought this genteel quality would not be becoming for Edie, who was raised on the waterfront in Hoboken, NJ. He gave the part to Saint, and she went on to win cinematic immortality, and a Best Supporting Actress Oscar, in the part.
