Virginia Christine Overview:

Character actress, Virginia Christine, was born Virginia Christine Kraft on Mar 5, 1920 in Stanton, IA. Christine died at the age of 76 on Jul 24, 1996 in Los Angeles, CA .


Virginia Christine was a blonde American actress generally seen playing maids or downtrodden housewives. There were a few notable exceptions to this, especially an Egyptian princess (in a black wig) in "The Mummy's Curse" and a gangster's moll in "The Invisible Wall." In her later career, she spent 20+ years advertising Folgers Coffee as a character called 'Mrs. Olson' on television. She was married to fellow character actor Fritz Feld from 1940 until his death in 1993.
