A stage, screen, and film actress, Stuart got her start in the New York theater but gained popularity with a regular role on the soap opera "The Edge of Night" in the early 1950s.

She is well remembered for her role in a 1960 episode of "The Twilight Zone" titled "Eye of the Beholder," where she played a woman covered in bandages awaiting her 11th surgical operation on her appearance.

Her career spans decades and includes a flurry of small roles on shows like "Dr. Kildare," "Peyton Place," "Murphy Brown," "NYPD Blue," "Chicago Hope," and "Judging Amy."

Stuart went on to receive an Emmy nomination in 1989 for her guest role as a piano teacher on "The Wonder Years" and, from there, landed a story line on "The Young and the Restless" in 1993.

According to the Times, Stuart's her real name was Maxine Shlivek and she was born on June 28, 1918, in Deal, N.J. Her first husband was character actor Frank Maxwell. That marriage ended in divorce in 1963, and she wed writer David Shaw in 1974. He died in 2007.
