Personal Quote:

[asked if she owns a piece of Upstairs, Downstairs (1971)] I get a residual for the idea as much as I get a residual for the acting. It's a very low fee. I think I got something like $100 an episode initially for the idea, and my royalty is based on that rate. I've got a saying: "If it had been made in America I'd be Mary Tyler Moore. As it is, I'm Mary Tyler Less." See more »

Trivia:

Her father was an outdoor maintenance man and printer's assistant. Her mother was a bar employee and dresser for the theatre. See more »
