American stage and television actress and cabaret performer, she was the younger sister of actress Cloris Leachman.

Cary made her Broadway theatre debut in Silk Stockings in 1956, later touring with the production's national tour with actor, Don Ameche. In 1957, with the support of choreographer Bob Fosse, she appeared opposite Gwen Verdon and Thelma Ritter in New Girl in Town at the 46th Street Theater on Broadway.

She appeared in television series including Law & Order, The Dick Van Dyke Show and Young Dr. Kildare, and in numerous television commercials.

Within cabaret, she starred in and produced Grand Slam with Murray Grand. She also toured with the stage adaptation of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

Cary's cabaret performances led to her twice winning MAC Awards, presented by the Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs as "the New York cabaret scene's top honor". She recorded and released two albums on CD, Miss Claiborne Cary Live and Now and Then.

She died from complications of Parkinson's disease in Costa Mesa, California, on 20 March 2010 at the age of 78.
