Mandy Miller (born 23 July 1944 in Weston-Super-Mare, Somerset, England) was a British child actor who made a number of films in the 1950s. Actually named Carman but called Mandy by her family. Her career tended to involve serious acting roles rather than comedy, even in her first small part in The Man in the White Suit, where she was a sad-faced little girl who helped Alec Guinness escape his pursuers. She was a natural actress and put in a much praised performance in her second film, another Ealing production, Mandy (1953), playing a deaf child whose parents do not know how to cope with raising her. The other leads were Jack Hawkins and Phyllis Calvert. She was just as convincing in the next film Background (1952), along with the other two child actors in this film about a family breaking up due to an impending divorce. Like Mandy, this was a drama about a well-to-do middle class family. Valerie Hobson played the mother.
She had lighter roles such as in Raising A Riot (1955) starring Kenneth More. Just some of her other famous co-stars were Joan Greenwood, Cecil Parker, Godfrey Tearle, Thora Hird, Sam Wanamaker and Joan Carroll, one of the stars of the M.G.M. musical Meet Me In St. Louis. Mandy Miller also made two single records, familiar to British people of a certain age: Snowflakes and Nelly The Elephant.
She also appeared in TV dramas, making films until she was 18. Although she did not continue her career as an adult, her films are well remembered and she recently featured in a magazine article bringing readers up to date on her life. She now lives in the United States.
She is the aunt of actress Amanda Pays.
