Carla Lehmann graduated from Winnipeg’s Balmoral Hall School in 1934. Most, if not all of her professional acting career took place in England. In addition to film, she spent a lot of her career on stage and just one example was her role in the production of Agatha Christie’s Appointment With Death in 1945. Trivia buffs may be interested to note that she shared the stage with a young Joan Hickson who in later life would portray Christie’s most famous character, Miss Marple in a highly popular TV series.
