Irene Ryan was her name.  We all knew her as 'Granny' on the hit television show The Beverly Hillbillies.  Google for a picture of her and you might be surprised at some of her earlier photographs.  Like Angnes Moorehead of Bewitched, Irene Ryan had also been a veteran of stage, radio, and screen before she got the roll of chasing Jethro around with a broom.  Irene went to her audition with her gray hair pulled back into a bun and in character.
