REDDING, Conn. -- Lori March, matriarch of the long-running daytime television drama “The Secret Storm,” died on March 19 in Redding at the age of 90, according to the New York Times.
In her career on Broadway, in film and on television, March’s longest-running role was that of Valerie Hill Ames Northcote, who she played from 1961 until “The Secret Storm” was canceled in 1974. After her screen husband died, Valerie married her stepdaughter’s psychiatrist, eventually played by March’s first husband, Alexander Scourby.
Regional theater was a part of her later career, and she often worked with Scourby during their 41-year marriage. They played husband and wife in a dinner theater production of “High Spirits” (a musical version of Noël Coward’s “Blithe Spirit”) in Darien in 1977.
