Carolyn Maxwell is known as an American actress and fashion designer. She is most famous for her roles in Gas and Black Mirror.
Carolyn Maxwell was born in 1945. Starting from her childhood, Carolyn had always been passionate about fashion and design. Carolyn’s mom was not very supportive of her desire to attend a fashion school. She insisted on Carolyn attending Hood College where she could focus on liberal arts. At Hood College, Carolyn studied for two years. She majored in Home Economics and learned a lot of domestic skills like sewing.
After graduation, a lot of related opportunities appeared for Carolyn. A friend once asked Carolyn to make her wedding dress and her bridesmaids’ dresses. Carolyn was also tasked by Foxridge Sportswear to design a bunch of leather sports attire. In the process of landing all the deals, Carolyn gained more customers, and most of them came by recommendations from previous customers that were very pleased with their results.
In her early days, Carolyn lived in a tiny apartment that was located on Park Avenue. Her apartment doubled as a workplace. Carolyn once stated that she could sew for hours without getting bored.
Carolyn is the former wife of an actor named Orson Bean. Carolyn ended up meeting Orson Bean when she designed a dress for his three year old daughter, Michelle. Carolyn was his second wife. After Bean ended his first marriage with Jacqueline de Sibour, he started dating Carolyn. Orson Bean was not famous when they were initially dating. He was just a minor stage actor at that time. They got married in 1965 after a few loving years of their relationship. They have three children together who were named Ezekiel Bean, Max Bean, and Susannah Bean.
After their marriage, they started to develop a need for culture. They wanted to expand their horizons outside of America and decided to make a move to Australia. It ended up being a mistake because that’s when their conflicts and arguments started to increase. Bean couldn’t hold back his desire for other women and pressured Carolyn to allow him to see other women on the side. She refused his request so he started to have affairs behind her back. The lying and cheating only increased the tension between them. Besides the adultery, another major issue hit their relationship. They believed that someone put a curse on them and caused black magic to hurt their sun. They decided to move back to America to get away from the curse. In Los Angeles, they felt that they found a cure that removed the black magic from their son.
A lot of issues made it difficult for Carolyn and Bean to stay together. They decided to get a divorce in 1981 after 16 years of marriage. Their daughter Susannah died in 2012. Her death was a source of major grief for the family.
Carolyn only acted in a few TV shows after their divorce. The separation also caused Bean to go into depression. He started doing drugs after splitting from Carolyn. He was able to recover from his drug addiction and get his life together. His acting career took off after he quit doing drugs.
Bean acted in many TV shows and wrote several books. One of his famous books is Me and The Orgone which was about his life and Orgone therapy. Bean was a favorite guest on many talk shows. He was a regular member of many celebrity talk shows. He married a woman named Alley Mills in 1993 and built a happy life together in Los Angeles. Carolyn did not marry again after her divorce with Orson Bean.
Carolyn broke into the entertainment scene and established herself when she landed a role on the comedy show, Tattletales. The show was an American comedy show that was produced by Ira Skutch and it first aired in February 1974 on the CBS network. After her big break, Carolyn managed to land roles on other shows like Gas and Les Chien Chauds. She gained a lot of fame and recognition from a role on the TV show, Black Mirror. In the show, Carolyn played the role of Elizabeth Smith which was a hit among audiences.
She was able to duplicate the success she enjoyed in acting when she entered the fashion world. She had a great modeling career and also did well when it came to fashion design. Carolyn enjoyed the fashion world but had no intention of working for a large company that mass produced their clothing. She was more interested in providing a personal touch. Most of her designs and sketches were for a specific person in mind. She enjoyed making stage costumes for stage productions. She worked on Softly Consider the Nearness which was a stage play that was having a run at the Provincetown Playhouse.
Carolyn developed a big name in the fashion world and leveraged it to price her services. Her criteria for pricing depended on the amount of work a specific design required and also the cost of the fabric that was required. A normal dress from her started out with a price of $30. Carolyn operated her fashion services by scheduling appointments with her interested clients through telephone. She liked to keep her business old school and traditional. She did not care about updating her promotion to match the modern world. A fashion manager could have helped her adapt to the new methods of marketing and business relationships but she did not care. She felt that her usual way of doing things would be all that she needed. She enjoyed getting to know her clients beyond the surface level so that she can really tap into their wants and desires.
