Collin Wilcox (actress)

Collin Wilcox (born February 4, 1937, in Highlands, North Carolina) is an American actress, variably credited as Collin Wilcox-Horne or Collin Wilcox-Paxton.

She made her professional debut in Chicago as part of the improvisational group, The Compass Players, which included Mike Nichols, Elaine May, and Shelley Berman. In 1958 Wilcox won the Clarence Derwent Award for her performance in "The Day Money Stopped" on Broadway. She starred in the 1961 play "Look, We've Come Through" with Burt Reynolds on Broadway. She had a run as a replacement actress in the 1963 revival of Eugene O'Neill's "Strange Interlude" and then went on to do the 1965 play "The Family Way", both on Broadway.

She is perhaps best known for her role in the film To Kill a Mockingbird, in which she played the role of Mayella Violet Ewell who accuses Tom Robinson (Brock Peters) or raping her.
