Claudette Nevins was born in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and grew up in Brooklyn, New York. She is a daughter of merchant Joseph Weintraub and garment worker Anna Lander, both of whom emigrated to America from small towns in Austria. Nevins is a graduate of the School of Performing Arts and a 1957 Phi Beta Kappa graduate of New York University with a degree in English.
Nevins' first stage work in New York was on Broadway in The Wall (Millard Lampell's adaptation of John Hersey's novel about the uprising in the Warsaw ghetto) with George C. Scott. Subsequent NY stage appearances include Plaza Suite (Broadway) with George C. Scott and Maureen Stapleton, Danton's Death (Lincoln Center), and In White America (off-Broadway) with Gloria Foster and Moses Gunn.
The National Company of The Great White Hope, in which she starred with Brock Peters, brought her to Los Angeles, after which she began working in television. For two and a half years she was seen in the long-running daytime soap opera Love of Life playing Laurie Krakauer.

Her guest star appearances include Beverly Hills 90210, Barnaby Jones, Melrose Place, JAG, Three's Company, Lou Grant, Without a Trace, M*A*S*H, Hart to Hart, and many others.
Her first film was the 1961 3D feature The Mask, which later became a cult classic. Other feature film appearances include Sleeping With the Enemy (Julia Roberts), All the Marbles (Peter Falk), and Tuff Turf (James Spader).
Her work in regional theaters includes the following: Arena Stage: Major Barbara, The Iceman Cometh, Ring Round the Moon, The Cherry Orchard; Atlanta Repertory: King Arther, The Hostage, The Little Foxes, Major Barbara, The Homecoming, You Can't Take It With You, Twelfth Night; LA Shakespeare: Comedy of Errors; La Mirada: Blithe Spirit.
