    Born in Bramhall, Cheshire, the daugh­ter of Frank Watkin Hiller, a Man­ches­ter cot­ton man­u­fac­turer, and Marie Stone, Hiller began her pro­fes­sional ca­reer as an ac­tress in reper­tory at Man­ches­ter in the early 1930s. She first found suc­cess as slum dweller Sally Hard­cas­tle in the stage ver­sion of Love on the Dole in 1934. The play was an enor­mous suc­cess and toured the re­gional stages of Britain. This play saw her West End debut in 1935 at the Gar­rick The­atre. She mar­ried the play's au­thor Ronald Gow, fif­teen years her se­nior, in 1937 (the same year as she made her film debut in Lan­cashire Luck, scripted by Gow).


    The huge pop­u­lar­ity of Love on the Dole took the pro­duc­tion to New York in 1936, where her per­for­mance at­tracted the at­ten­tion of George Bernard Shaw. Shaw recog­nised a spir­ited ra­di­ance in the young ac­tress, which was ide­ally suited for play­ing his hero­ines. Shaw cast her in sev­eral of his plays, in­clud­ing Saint Joan, Pyg­malion and Major Bar­bara and his in­flu­ence on her early ca­reer is clearly ap­par­ent. She was re­puted to be Shaw's favourite ac­tress of the time....

    Film career

    At Shaw's in­sis­tence, she starred as Eliza Doolit­tle in the film Pyg­malion (1938) with Leslie Howard as Pro­fes­sor Hig­gins. This per­for­mance earned Hiller her first Oscarnom­i­na­tion, a first for a British ac­tress in a British film, and be­came one of her best re­mem­bered roles. She was also the first ac­tress to utter the word "bloody" in a British film, when Eliza ut­ters the line "Not bloody likely, I'm going in a taxi!". She fol­lowed up this suc­cess with an­other Shaw adap­ta...

    Television career

    Hiller made nu­mer­ous tele­vi­sion ap­pear­ances, in both Britain and the United States. In the 1950s and 1960s, she per­formed in episodes of Amer­i­can drama se­ries such as Stu­dio One and Al­fred Hitch­cock Pre­sents among oth­ers. In 1965, she starred in an episode of the ac­claimed dra­matic se­ries Pro­files in Courage (1965), in which she played Anne Hutchin­son, a free-think­ing woman charged with heresy in Colo­nial Amer­ica. In Britain, dur­ing the 1960s, she ap­peared in the dram...
