Eva Gabor


Born: 11 February 1919
Died: 4 July 1995
Birthplace: Budapest, Hungary
Best known as: Star of the TV sitcom Green Acres

Eva Gabor played the lovably silly Lisa Douglas on Green Acres, a 1965-70 sitcom about city sophisticates who move to the country. Gabor and her sisters Zsa Zsa and Magda were a popular trio of celebrity beauties in their day, with Zsa Zsa and Eva being nearly interchangeable -- blondes in furs with Hungarian accents. Eva Gabor had a scattershot career in Hollywood movies; her best-known role was probably the high-strung Paris beauty Liane d'Exelmans in the 1958 musical Gigi. Eva Gabor also appeared on Broadway, notably in the 1950 hit The Happy Time.

Extra credit:

Gabor was married five times… She did voices for the Disney animated films The Aristocats (1970) and The Rescuers (1977)… Her husband on Green Acres was played by Eddie Albert.
