Kathryn  Hays  (  Kim  Hughes)   from  As  the  World  Turns  dies  at  87

Just caught her episode of the series Naked City, in syndication on RetroTV.

She plays a socialite trying to get out of a traffic citation by shaming Det. Adam Flint in court. He had witnessed the accident, pursued, and arrested her for leaving the accident scene.

To the Best of Your Knowledge, Any (familial) Relation To/With Nancy Olson? Cursory investigation on my end says "No". But That also seems to be a bit of a unique name 

Am also inquiring of Gorman.

JAMES OLSON retired from acting in films and television in 1991, I believe, when he was 60 or 61.  Prior to that, he'd been busy for 3 decades.

From IMDB:

Parents

Olson, LeRoy
Florence M. Nelson

James Olson was born on October 8, 1930 in Evanston, Illinois, the son of LeRoy Olson, an engineer. He made his stage debut at age 12 as "Hans Brinker" in the Evanston Children's Theatre production of 'Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates'. He received a BS degree in Speech from Northwestern University before serving in the U.S. Army as a military policeman (M.P.) in 1952 for a two-year stint.

A Chicago-based stage actor before moving to New York, the 6'3" Olson studied with Lee Strasberg and made his Broadway debut in 'The Young and Beautiful'.

A fine actor, I recall him back in the 1970s doing many guest roles on TV.  He usually played psycho killers on cop shows ike The Rookies and The Streets Of San Francisco.

that ep also co-starred Sheree North.
