Norma Lee Clark

Actress

Norma Lee Clark, actress, author and personal assistant to Woody Allen for more than 30 years, died of cancer Nov. 8 at her home in New York City. She was believed to be 75 year old at the time of her death.

Born in Jefferson City, Missouri, Clark began her career in show business with the Pittsburgh Children’s Theater and later acted at the Rochester Arena Theater. In the late 1940s, she moved to New York to take the female lead in the Buck Rogers TV series, “Captain Video and His Video Ranger,” which ran 1949 to 1955.

For 30 years, Clark worked as Woody Allen’s personal assistant. During this period, she also wrote 15 Regency novels, under her own name and the nom de plume Megan O’Connor, including “The Infamous Rake” and “The Daring Duchess.”

Her marriage to lighting designer David Clark ended in divorce.

She is survived by husband, Dimitri Vassilopoulos, her two daughters, Megan Clark and Emily Carvajal, and two grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held in the near future.
