Eva Marie Saint is an American actress with a career spanning 70 years. She studied acting at Bowling Green State University and joined Delta Gamma Sorority. She was an active member in the theater honorary fraternity, Theta Alpha Phi. Saint made her feature film debut in “On the Waterfront” (1954), starring Marlon Brando and directed by Elia Kazan—a performance for which she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Saint's introduction to television began as an NBC page. Although North by Northwest might have propelled her to the top ranks of stardom, Saint chose to limit her film work in order to spend time with her husband since 1951, director Jeffrey Hayden, and their two children. Saint returned to the big screen for the first time in over a decade in Nothing in Common (1986), in which she played the mother of Tom Hanks's character; it was directed by Garry Marshall. Critics applauded her return to features. Eva was inducted into the high school's hall of fame in 2006. In September 2012, she was cast as the adult version of Willa in the film adaptation of the novel Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin. The film was released on Valentine's Day 2014. Most recently, Saint appeared at the 2018 Academy Award ceremonies.
