Early years

McEwan was born in Santa Monica, California on April 23, 1934.[2] She studied acting at the Los Angeles City College for one year, then transferred to the University of California at Los Angeles, where she met and married her husband, Nicaraguan gastroenterologist Guillermo McEwan. They moved to Mexico City, where he continued his medical studies and began his career. After returning to California via Temple, Texas, where she received a bachelor's degree from the University of Mary Hardin–Baylor, McEwan obtained a master's degree in Spanish from University of California, Irvine and worked as a interpreter in criminal court.


When her husband died in 2009, McEwan decided to make another attempt at an acting career, working on multiple television shows before landing a film role in Nebraska.[3][4][5]
