With her sultry tall, expressive face and unique, husky vocal style, actress Bea Arthur is anyone’s idea of a strong female character. But with her trademark dry humor and incredible acrobatic skill combined with an incredible comfort with her physique, she’s made some of television’s most memorable female characters in history, from” Dynasty” to “Heroes” to “ER.” Her ability to draw viewers into her soap opera-like personality has made Bea Arthur one of the best-selling dramatic actors in modern television. But Bea Arthur isn’t just a powerful leading lady; she’s also an accomplished screenwriter. She is known for crafting one-liners that keep the audience enthralled while the story builds tension and mystery.
Bea Arthur was born in Louisiana, the youngest of five children. Her father was a successful broker and her mother was an accomplished writer. When Bea was a young girl, her mother died of lung cancer. Bea was deeply devastated by the loss of her loved one and felt a deep sense of responsibility to carry on the family legacy. In her memoirs, Bea revealed her dream to find a way to be a “Jack of all trades,” so she enrolled in several community colleges in order to learn the trade of being a broker. This career goal would prove to be a great inspiration for her in later years as she wrote several books on her experiences as a young woman.

The most prolific of Bea Arthur’s endeavors was on Broadway, playing the role of “the vamp” in numerous popular plays. She broke into the Hollywood entertainment scene playing the same role in the highly acclaimed movie adaptation of Dracula. For many years, Bea Arthur was a staple of the television comedy genre, playing various characters in the popular comedy series like ‘Cheers’ and ‘F.R.I.E.N.D.S..”
When it came to her Broadway experience, Bea was most noted for playing the role of Coraline’s mother in the musical adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s “A Question of Life”. It was this role that would help catapult her to stardom status as she was cast as the title role in the very successful movie adaptation of the same novel. In addition to that memorable Broadway performance, Bea had also appeared in a number of other Hollywood films, including the animated musical film “The Lion King” as well as the award-winning “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street” (which was made into a motion picture).
After a short stint on Broadway, Bea went to work on her third and last full-length feature film, the terrible “Alice Doesn’t Live Like I Do” (which starred niceties like Dan Aykroyd and George Segal). Though the film did not do her any good at the box office, it was a definite hit with the public due to her comedic talent. After that Bea settled into the starring role in another of her Broadway shows, “Webbered”, and appeared in a number of different movies including “Man on the Moon” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” before settling down into playing the role of Coraline’s mother in the latest version of the Coraline movie. Now that Coraline has finally received an official movie sequel (by Dreamworks) it is fair to say that Bea Arthur has become a mainstay in the world of live-action animation. And considering the track record for animated film franchises, it is safe to assume that Bea will have a role in the next film as well.
Bea Arthur: Into the Forest of Minds is based on the book of the same name, which was written by Neil Gaiman. One of the better movies of the year (and of the decade), it is worth checking out if you get a chance.
