Ursula Thiess (May 15, 1924 - June 19, 2010) born in Hamburg, Germany. RKO brought her to America for a test in 1952 and she was voted most promising newcomer by Modern Screen (along with Marilyn Monroe). While starring in a mere 5 films, she is probably best known for her marriage to Robert Taylor. They met on a studio-arranged blind date. They fell in love and were married May 24, 1954 until Taylor's death on June 8, 1969. She had 2 children with Taylor. Ursula basically retired from the screen after she married Taylor and concentrated on her family. Her last screen appearance was in 1972.
