Nita Talbot (born August 8, 1930) is an American actress. Talbot is a durable leading lady who spent the first decade or so of her career playing "slick chicks" and sharp-witted career girls, but is perhaps best known for her role as the White Russian spy in the 1960s sitcom, Hogan's Heroes, as well as Sheila Fine in the sitcom, Soap. Talbot received an Emmy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for the 1967–1968 season of Hogan's Heroes.

Life and career

Born in New York City, Talbot began her acting career appearing as a model in the film, It's a Great Feeling in 1949. She was afforded a wealth of varied screen roles from the love-starved switchboard operator in A Very Special Favor (1965), to the brassy Madame Esther in Buck and the Preacher (1972). She also appeared in such films as Bright Leaf (1950), This Could Be the Night (1957), I Married a Woman (1958), Who's Got the Action? (1962), The Day of the Locust (1975), Serial (1980), Chained Heat (1983), Fraternity Vacation (1985), and Puppet Master II (1991).

A TV-series perennial, Talbot has been seen as Mabel Spooner opposite Larry Blyden's Joe Spooner in Joe and Mabel (1956), con-woman Goldie Collins in the second season of The Thin Man (1958-1959), resourceful girl Friday Dora Miles on Hot Off the Wire (aka: The Jim Backus Show), snooty socialite Judy Evans in Here We Go Again (1973), ultra cyncial Rose in Starting from Scratch (1988) and as the lovable White Russian Marya in Hogan's Heroes.

Talbot has been either the star or co-star of several other series, including: Man Against Crime, Bourbon Street Beat, The Secret Storm, and Supertrain while guest starring on several others like: Goodyear Television Playhouse, Robert Montgomery Presents, Studio One, Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer, The Lawless Years, Maverick, The Tab Hunter Show, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Rawhide, Daniel Boone, The Monkees, The Debbie Reynolds Show, The Jimmy Stewart Show, Bewitched, The Rockford Files, Mannix, Kolchak: The Night Stalker, All in the Family, Lou Grant, Matt Houston, Trapper John, M.D., Charles in Charge, The John Larroquette Show and Ellen. Talbot was also a familiar face on the daytime-drama scene with long-running roles in Search for Tomorrow and General Hospital.

Tablot's most recent acting role was in 1997. She voiced the character of Anastasia Hardy, the businesswoman mother of Felicia Hardy, the Black Cat, in the animated series Spider-Man.
