Lynn Cartwright

Lynn Cartwright was an American character actress known for her performance as the older version of Geena Davis' character, Dottie Hinson, in the 1992 film A League of Their Own. She was born Doralyn Emma Cartwright in McAlester, Oklahoma, the daughter of U.S. Congressman Wilburn Cartwright and his wife Carrie. Her younger sister, Wilburta, was an artist. She was also related to former Oklahoma legislator Buck Cartwright and former Oklahoma Attorney General Jan-Eric Cartwright. Her acting career spanned from 1957 to 1992 and included smaller roles in films such as Black Patch, The Cry Baby Killer, The Wasp Woman, All the Loving Couples, Son of Hitler and Lovelines. She was also involved with the Group Repertory Theatre in Burbank, California. Cartwright was chosen for the role in A League of Their Own not just because she closely resembled Geena Davis, but also because many of her mannerisms were similar.
