Dame Wendy Margaret Hiller, DBE
(15 August 1912 – 14 May 2003) was an English film and stage actress, who enjoyed a varied acting career that spanned nearly sixty years. The writer Joel Hirschorn, in his 1984 compilation Rating the Movie Stars, described her as "a no-nonsense actress who literally took command of the screen whenever she appeared on film". Despite many notable film performances, she chose to remain primarily a stage actress.
She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Separate Tables (1958).
Born in Bramhall, Cheshire, the daughter of Frank Watkin Hiller, a Manchester cotton manufacturer, and Marie Stone.

No relationship that I know of, but took the liberty of adding her Wikipedia page as a source. I saw that her Father was a Frank Hiller. One result is: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hiller-169 although he was born in 1894, 18 years prior to Wendy's birth. I also noted that is an orphaned profile.
