Jean Heather (February 21, 1921 – October 29, 1995) was an American actress who appeared in eight feature films during the 1940s. She acted in two Oscar-nominated movies in 1944: the crime drama Double Indemnity, in which she played Lola Dietrichson, a young woman convinced that her stepmother Phyllis (Barbara Stanwyck) is responsible for the murder of Lola's father, and Going My Way, where she played a runaway teenager assisted by Father O'Malley (Bing Crosby). Heather's acting career was cut short by an automobile accident in December 1947, in which she was thrown from her car onto the pavement and suffered severe facial lacerations.
