Georgann Johnson (born August 15, 1926, Decorah, Iowa) is a retired American actress of stage, film and television. The tall, statuesque Johnson attended Decorah High School, Luther College and Northwestern University before becoming an actress in 1952. She appeared in films, on stage and on television. She may be best known as Elizabeth Quinn on the Jane Seymour series Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, or as Charlotte O'Neill, mother of the title character in The Trials of Rosie O'Neill (played by Sharon Gless).
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.
