Arlene Golonka (Born January 23, 1939 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American actress. She is perhaps best known for playing Millie Swanson on the television comedies The Andy Griffith Show and Mayberry R.F.D., and often portrayed bubbly, eccentric blondes in supporting character roles on stage, film, and television.
Golonka began her acting career when she was 8 years old, and went professional in a summer-stock troupe while still in her teens. After studying at the prestigious Goodman Theatre in her native Chicago, she made her way to New York City at age 19 where she studied with Lee Strasberg, Sanford Meisner, and Uta Hagen.
