Personal Quote:

I rarely play a victim. I'm usually someone who's kind of foxy with great lines. I always say that my career has been great one-liners and great clothes. I've been lucky. I almost consistently play characters who are famous for being well dressed. And there's always a feistiness to the characters I play and a real strength. See more »

Trivia:

Before hitting it big on the TV series Cybill (1995), she had already completed close to 20 years' success in New York theater, both on and off Broadway, garnering wins in all major acting areas (Tony Award, Obie Award, Lortel Award, and Drama Desk Award), later winning an Emmy Award as well.
