About Mary Badham

Mary Badham (born October 7, 1952) is an American actress, known for her portrayal of Scout Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird (1962), for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. At the time, Badham (aged 10) was the youngest actress ever nominated in this category. Badham also played 'Sport Sharewood' in The Bewitchin' Pool, the final episode of the original Twilight Zone series. Careful listening reveals that her dialogue was overdubbed in post production by ADR artist June Foray. She also appeared in the films Let's Kill Uncle and This Property Is Condemned before retiring from the acting profession. Mary Badham is the younger (by thirteen years) sister of film director John Badham.
