Biographie

Education and early career roles
A graduate of Decorah High School, Johnson is a graduate of both Luther College and Northwestern University. Her father, George, was a local Decorah area plumbing contractor and an amateur actor. Georgann's specialization has been in the portrayal of the all-American girl/housewife and/or the young comic's sweetheart. She met her first husband, actor/director and future TV producer Stanley Prager, in 1953, when both were appearing briefly as replacements in the Broadway stage revival of "Room Service". In 1954, she appeared with famed TV news journalist/news presenter and TV personality Mike Wallace in the stage comedy, Reclining Figure, a spoof of the art world. Her recurring role as the menacing "Princess Arura" in the noted DuMont Television Network series, Captain Video and His Video Rangers (1949), widened her acceptance as a strong
dramatic artist. Georgann has been notably critical of what she terms the false glamor of the stage.


TV acting roles
Johnson's first major TV role was as Marge Weskit, wife of wise-guy high-school teacher Harvey Weskit (Tony Randall) in the popular early TV sitcom series Mr. Peepers. Georgann played Ellen Grant on NBC daytime soap opers Somerset (1970-1976), with the likes of Michael Nouri, Barry Jenner, George Coe and Marc Alaimo.

One year later, in 1988, she starred with John Glover in David.

In 1990 Georgann appeared as Helen O'Donnell in Shattered Dreams, acting again opposite Michael Nouri, and from 1990-1992 she played Sharon Gless's mother in the series, The Trials of Rosie O'Neill. In 1992, she acted in Fatal Memories with Dean Stockwell. In 1993 she made an appearance in Father Hood with Adrienne Barbeau of Maude TV series fame, and Brian Bonsall of NBC-TV's Family Ties TV series fame. Also in 1993 she replaced Jane Wyman as Elizabeth Quinn, mother of Jane Seymour's character in Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman, making several appearances throughout the series run. She co-starred once again with veteran actor Dean Stockwell, this time in 1996 in the film Twilight Man. In 1999 she co-starred with Olivia d'Abo, Michael Buchman Silver, and Stephanie Er in Seven Girlfriends.

The film is based on a book written by Marie Rothenberg and Mel White and relates the true story of David, a child who was burned over 90 percent of his body by his father. The parents were estranged and the non-custodial father, Charles Rothenberg, fled with David in tow to California, but quickly decided that he could not care for David alone. However, rather than return David to his mother's care, the elder Rothenberg used kerosene to set fire to his son while the boy slept in a hotel room. The movie shows how his mother, Marie Rothenberg, coped with the crisis, and the courage and determination of David.

But beneath the surface, her life is less than ideal; her husband is preoccupied with his career, a domineering mother (Georgann Johnson), and a dark secret that not even her closest friends know: Kate is bulimic. As the pressures in her life begin to mount, Kate obsessively diets and exercises, and habitually binges and purges while adroitly hiding her eating disorder from those closest to her. When Kate's bulimia finally leads to a frightening accident that makes it clear to everyone that her illness is dangerous not only to herself, but also to those around her, she is committed to rehabilitation, where she will have to learn to face the inner turmoil at the root of her disorder before it is too late.
