Virginia Christine

Biography:Virginia Christine (March 5, 1920 - July 24, 1996) was an American movie and television actress and voice artist.

She was born Virginia Christine Kraft, in Stanton, Iowa. A slender woman who stood 5' 4", Ms. Christine had a long career as a character actress on the screen, but she will probably be best remembered as "Mrs. Olson" or the "Folgers Coffee Woman", a fictive Swedish character, in a number of television commercials.

When her family moved to Los Angeles, Virginia began work in radio while attending UCLA. She was trained for a theatrical career by actor/director Fritz Feld, whom she married in 1940. In 1942, she signed a contract with Warner Bros., and started appearing in various films. Her first film was Edge of Darkness (1942), in which she played a Norwegian peasant girl called "Miss Olson".

She was adept at imitating foreign accents when the role required it. In a 1953 episode of The Adventures of Superman called The Lady in Black, she appeared as the title character, effecting a stereotypically mysterious eastern-European accent.

Over the years she appeared in prestigious films such as High Noon (1952) and Judgment at Nuremberg (1961), as well as horror films such as The Mummy's Curse (1944) and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956). She was a favorite of director Stanley Kramer, appearing in a number of his films.

Her greatest fame came in 1965 when she started her 21-year stint as the matronly "Mrs. Olson", who always had comforting words for young married couples while pouring Folgers Coffee in the TV commercials. In 1971, Virginia's hometown honored its most famous citizen by transforming the city water tower to resemble a giant coffeepot.
