Some Facts

Half-sister of David Lee Strasberg and Adam Strasberg.
Daughter of Lee Strasberg and stage actress Paula Strasberg. Mother of one child - daughter, Jennifer Robin Jones (B: March 14, 1966), with ex-husband Christopher Jones.
Originated the role of Anne Frank in the original 1955 Broadway production of "The Diary of Anne Frank". Of the opening night cast members, only Joseph Schildkraut and Gusti Huber as Anne Frank's parents and Lou Jacobi as Mr. Van Daan also appeared in George Stevens' 1959 film.

Personal Quotes
There's no such thing as The Method. The term "method-acting" is so much nonsense. There are many methods, many techniques. My father merely used a method of teaching based on the ideas originally propounded by [Konstantin Stanislavski]--self-discipline, how to think out a role and use imagination. That's all.
