Mary Badham was To Kill a Mockingbird's Scout Finch, and in many ways, Scout was her. Her character didn't have much interest in stereotypical girl things, like dolls and dresses and much preferred her tomboyish nature. "I grew up in a houseful of boys and was very much a tomboy growing up," Mary says.
