Stage Name

Birth Name

Joan Fontaine Joan Beavoir De Haviland
Joan Burfield  

    Joan was an actress not a dancer, however she would have several roles that required her to dance, such as appearing opposite Fred Astaire in 'A Damsel in Distress.'

    Joan was the daughter of actress Lillian Fontaine and sister to Olivia de Haviland. Joan took her stage name from her stepfather, 'George Fontaine' in order to not ride on her sister's coat tails. ( It was said that Joan eventually became a bigger star than Olivia.)
