Verna grew up in her hometown, and after the finishing high school moved to Boston, where she enrolled at the School of Fine Arts, from which she obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, then continued her learning of performing arts at the HB Studio in New York City.

Verna made her debut in 1967 with a minor role in the TV series “NBC Experiments in Television”, and the same year featured in another TV series “N.Y.P.D.”. She made her film debut in the drama “Medium Cool”, starring next to Robert Forster and Peter Bonerz, while in 1973 she made her breakthrough with the role of Sarah Belding in the western “High Plains Drifter”, starring Clint Eastwood and Marianna Hill, with Verna herself in a lead role; the film became a box office success, grossing more than $15 million, which helped increase her wealth. She had several other successful appearances during the ‘70s, such as Jenny in the sci-fi drama “Where Have All the People Gone” (1974), and as Marion Wormer in the comedy film “Animal Lover” (1978), with John Belushi, Karen Allen and Tom Hulce as the stars of the film.

She continued the momentum from the ‘70s into the early ‘80s by appearing in such successful films as the Golden Globe Award-nominated drama “Playing for Time” (1980), starring Vanessa Redgrave, Jane Alexander and Maud Adams, while in 1982 she portrayed Emmy in Clint Eastwood’s film “Honkytonk Man”, and in 1985 had a role in the Academy Award-nominated adventure film “The Journey of Natty Gann”, which also added to her net worth. The same year she starred in the comedy-drama “After Hours”, with Griffin Dunne, and Rosanna Arquette, and then made one of her most prominent appearances, as Mary, Mother of Jesus in Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-nominated drama “The Last Temptation of Christ”.

Since then, Verna has remained away from the world of the entertainment world, focused on other aspects of her life, however, details are yet to be disclosed.

Regarding her personal life, Verna has been married to screenwriter Jay Cocks since 1972; the couple doesn’t have any children.
