Virginia Christine (March 5, 1920July 24, 1996) was an American film and television actress and voice artist. Christine had a long career as a character actress in film and television, and is well known as "Mrs. Olsen" (or the "Folgers Coffee Woman", in a number of television commercials.

Biography

She was born Virginia Christine Kraft, in Stanton, Iowa.

Christine began work in radio while attending UCLA. She was trained for a theatrical career by actor/director Fritz Feld, whom she married in 1940. In 1942, she signed a contract with Warner Bros., and started appearing in various films. Her first film was Edge of Darkness (1942), in which she played a Norwegian peasant girl called Miss Olson.

She was adept at imitating foreign accents when the role required it. In "The Lady in Black", a 1953 episode of Adventures of Superman, she appears as the title character, effecting a stereotypically mysterious eastern-European accent. She guest starred in two 1950s Rod Cameron series, State Trooper and COronado 9 as well as the anthology series, The DuPont Show with June Allyson, and the syndicated sitcom How to Marry a Millionaire. She appeared too in the first Brian Keith series, Crusader, a Cold War drama.

Over the years she appeared in prestigious films such as High Noon (1952) and Judgment at Nuremberg (1961), as well as horror films such as The Mummy's Curse (1944) and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956). She was a favorite of director Stanley Kramer, appearing in a number of his films. One of her most notable roles was as Hilary St. George, the racially intolerant co-worker of the Katharine Hepburn character in the film Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967).

Her greatest fame came in 1965 when she started her 21-year stint as the matronly Mrs. Olsen, who always had comforting words for young married couples while pouring Folgers Coffee in the TV commercials. In 1971, Christine's hometown honored her by transforming the city water tower to resemble a giant coffeepot.

She died in 1996.
