Colleen Rose Dewhurst (June 3, 1924 — August 22, 1991) was a Canadian-American actress known for a while as "the Queen of Off-Broadway".
Admired for her casual beauty, wide-armed emotional frankness and a voice as deep as a foghorn, Dewhurst was a renowned interpreter of the works of Eugene O'Neill on the stage, and her career also encompassed work in film, the early dramas of live television, and a professional relationship with Joseph Papp that went back to the beginnings of his dream of a New York Shakespeare Festival.
She married George C. Scott twice, and their personal and professional partnership was known for its fire. Their son, actor Campbell Scott, is respected for his work on the stage and in films.
Dewhurst won two Tony Awards and four Emmy Awards.
