Berinthia "Berry" Berenson (a.k.a. Berry Perkins), (April 14, 1948 – September 11, 2001), was an American photographer, actress, and model who was best known as the widow of actor Anthony Perkins.

Career

Following a brief modeling career in the late 1960s, Berenson became a freelance photographer. By 1973, her photographs had been published in Life, Glamour, Vogue and Newsweek.[1]
She also appeared in several motion pictures, including Cat People, with Malcolm McDowell. She starred opposite Anthony Perkins in the 1978 Alan Rudolph film Remember My Name and opposite Jeff Bridges in the 1979 film Winter Kills.

Background

Berinthia Berenson was the younger daughter of Robert L. Berenson, an American diplomat turned shipping executive, who was of Lithuanian Jewish descent; his family's original surname was Valvrojenski.[2][3] Her mother was born Countess Maria Luisa Yvonne Radha de Wendt de Kerlor, better known as Gogo Schiaparelli, a socialite of Italian, Swiss, French, and Egyptian ancestry.[4][5]
Her maternal grandmother was the Italian-born fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli,[6] and her maternal grandfather was Count Wilhelm de Wendt de Kerlor, a Theosophist and psychic medium.[4][7][8] Her elder sister, Marisa Berenson, became a well-known model and actress. She also was a great-grand-niece of Giovanni Schiaparelli, an Italian astronomer who believed he had discovered the supposed canals of Mars, and a great-grand-niece of art expert Bernard Berenson (1865 – 1959) and his sister Senda Berenson (1868 – 1954), an athlete and educator who was one of the first two women elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame.[9]

Marriage
On August 9, 1973, in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Berenson married the actor Anthony Perkins. They had two sons: the actor-musician Oz Perkins (born February 2, 1974) and the folk/rock singer-songwriter Elvis Perkins (born February 9, 1976).[10]They remained married until Perkins' death of AIDS on September 12, 1992.

Death

Berenson died at age 53 in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack on American Airlines Flight 11. She was returning to her California home following a holiday on Cape Cod.

Quotes

"I hope she didn't suffer. It's hard to take in. I have hope and tremendous faith. I think that's what gets you through life...through tragedies is when you have faith." Marisa Berenson on the death of her sister Berry Berenson in the attacks on September 11.
