The eldest daughter of British actor John Mills and author Mary Hayley Bell, Juliet Mills made her screen debut when she was well under the age of consent. She played a baby in her father's film In Which We Serve (1942) -- a classic piece of typecasting, since she was a month shy of a year old at the time. Her career as a juvenile performer began more formally in 1947's So Well Remembered and The October Man, both starring her father. Polishing her craft in such London stage productions as Five Finger Exercise, Mills returned to films in 1961 as the teenaged heroine of No, My Darling Daughter. American TV buffs are familiar with Mills for her two-year run as "magical" governess Phoebe Figalilly in the '70s sitcom Nanny and the Professor and her Emmy-winning performance as the wife of Anthony Hopkins in the 1973 miniseries QB VII. Juliet Mills has been married twice: first to American songwriter Russ Alquist Jr., then to Scottish film actor Maxwell Caulfield.
