Did You Know?
I'm an actress, and that's why I'm still here. Anybody who has the illusion that you can have a career as long as I have and be a star is kidding themselves. From a 1999 interview
Both Suzanne Pleshette and Veronica Cartwright
appeared together in Alfred Hitchcock
, as well as on episodes of
Will & Grace
. Each played mothers. Suzanne Pleshette playing Karen Walker's mom, and Veronica Cartwright playing Jack's mom.
