After making an impression on director Mike Nichols, the Wales-born actress actually came dangerously close to landing her big break in 1967’s “The Graduate.” However, visa issues prevented her from starring in the highly acclaimed film.

Still, Jennifer was successful in Hollywood, among of her famous roles are in “Nero Wolfe,” “Hawaii Five-0,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” and “Another World.”

Her final listed credit was from the 1992 ABC serial series “Loving,” when she appeared in two episodes as Dr. Hennessy.

In addition to her brother Kenneth Leak, Jennifer is survived by her husband. Her last resting place will be a cemetery in Wales, where she was born.

She was 76 years old.

RIP
