Kasey Rogers was born Josie Imogene Rogers to Ina Mae (Mocabee) and Eben Elijah Rogers. She moved with her family to California at age two and a half. She got the nickname "Casey" when her neighborhood playmates discovered how well she handled a baseball bat. She later changed the "C" in "Casey" to a "K". Paramount changed her name to Laura Elliott during her late 1940's - early 1950's stint there, but she went back to Kasey Rogers soon after leaving that studio. She played a brief, but memorable, role as Farley Granger's caustic estranged wife who is strangled by Robert Walker in Hitchcock's classic "Strangers on a Train" (1951).
Bewitched and Later Years
Due to her popular work on "Peyton Place" (1964) as Barbara Parkins' long-suffering mother, she was cast as Louise Tate without an audition. She remained with Bewitched through the remainder of its run (1966-1972).
After Bewitched, she mostly retired from acting. Rogers turned to writing. She wrote "The Bewitched Cookbook: Magic in the Kitchen" (1996) with her close companion and writing partner Mark Wood. She also successfully wrote several crafts and interior design books based on Bewitched.
After battling throat cancer for many years, Kasey went into cardiac arrest and suffered a stroke, dying from complications of the stroke.
Rogers had red hair. She originally wore a black bouffant wig on the Bewitched (1964) series in order to resemble the "first" Louise Tate, actress Irene Vernon. Once Kasey was firmly established in the role, she eventually stopped wearing the wig.
