"I only ever wanted to be an actress, not a star."

Muriel Teresa Wright (October 27, 1918 – March 6, 2005) was an American actress whose career began during The Golden Age of Hollywood and lasted into The '90s.

Wright was nominated twice for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, for her film debut in The Little Foxes (1941) and for Mrs. Miniver (1942), winning for the latter. That same year, she received a nomination for Best Actress for her performance in The Pride of the Yankees. She's also well known for her roles in Alfred Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt (1943) and William Wyler's The Best Years of Our Lives (1946).

Wright was married to novelist and screenwriter Niven Busch, with whom she had two children, and later to playwright Robert Anderson.
