My Real Self
I was born considerably less than a hundred years ago in a not-so-small town in Texas.
At an inevitable age, I left Texas to attend Juilliard. Upon graduation, I joined The Acting Company and toured for three years in classical repertory, racking up miles and iambic pentameters. I’ve been happily migrating between N.Y. and L.A. ever since.
My Fictional Selves
I’ve played a lot of “mad, bad and dangerous to know” types. Perhaps the best known of these are Bebe the conniving agent on Frasier, the vengeful Felicia Tilman on Desperate Housewives – and Mrs. Meers, the white slaver in Thoroughly Modern Millie.
Earlier this year, I was up to no good as the wicked stepmother in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella on Broadway. I’m currently co-starring in Show Boat at the San Francisco Opera.
