Googie Withers


Googie Withers began her acting career at the age of 12. She was dancing in the chorus in a West End revue when she was spotted by a Warner Brothers casting director. She went to do a screen test for them at the Riverside Studios and was invited to become an extra. On her first day at the filming of The Girl in the Crowd (1935) she arrived on the set just after Michael Powell had just sacked the second lead, and she was enlisted to play one of the lead roles.
