"Joy Page" was an United States/American actress best known for her role as the Bulgarian bride Annina Brandel in the film Casablanca (film)/Casablanca (1942).
Born "Joy Cerrette Paige", she was the daughter of Mexican-American silent film star Don Alvarado (born José Paige) and Ann Boyar (1908–1990), the daughter of Russian Jewish immigrants. Her parents divorced when she was eight.
In 1936, her mother married Jack Warner, then head of Warner Bros. studios. Warner, however, did not encourage his stepdaughter's interest in acting. Page, who initially thought the script to Casablanca was "old fashioned" and "cliched", landed the role on her own and Warner reluctantly approved. She was only seventeen and fresh out of high school.If you enjoy these quotes, be sure to check out other famous actresses! More Joy Page on Wikipedia.
