Moya Nugent

(1901-1954), Actress

Sitter in 25 portraits
Actress. As a child Nugent appeared in Rip Van Winkle and as Liza in Peter Pan. As an adult, she alternated parts in revues Pell-Mell (1917), and Wake Up and Dream (1929), pantomime and comedy. Nugent was one of Noël Coward's favourite character actresses, and he cast her in many of his productions, from This Year Of Grace (1928) to Conversation Piece (1934) and Blithe Spirit (1941) in which she was Mrs Bradman, playing the part for nearly five years. In Coward's Tonight at 8.30 she played several roles, both in London and on Broadway. Her last roles were in Coward's Pacific 1860, as Miss Scobie, then as Miss Denington in Calypso (1948) and Mary in Dear Miss Phoebe (1950).
