Carol Grace was an American actress and author. She is usually referred to as Carol Marcus Saroyan or Carol Matthau. Carol Grace was born in New York City's Lower East Side; her mother, who was sixteen when she gave birth, was the daughter of Russian Jewish immigrants. Carol never knew her biological father. She was placed in foster care until the age of eight when her mother married Charles Marcus, the wealthy head of the Bendix Corporation. Carol would take his last name as her own. She was reportedly the inspiration for the Holly Golightly character in the novella Breakfast at Tiffany's.
