Marcia Jean Diamond attended school in Vancouver and became interested in acting when she was part of school broadcast on radio. This interest grew when she she was at Northwestern University in Illinois in the 1940s and was in a number of plays on the Northwestern University Radio Playhouse. She graduated from Northwestern in 1945 but didn’t make her first television appearance until ten years later, being cast during the so-called Golden Age of television. One of the many productions featuring drama was the On Camera series, and Diamond made her TV debut in a play titled Just a Short Visit. Her sporadic career continued until 2015 and was 95 when she died in Toronto in 2021.
