Personal Quote:

I went to one of the world's great music schools, Juilliard, to acting school and never had any voice training. It wasn't until my mid-twenties that I began to go and see a singing teacher, and I discovered I had a voice, but I never felt very much confidence about singing in public and rarely went up for musical auditions.

Trivia:

Daughter of Virginia (née Mazurowski) and Lucien Baranski, both of Polish descent. Her father edited a Polish-language newspaper. Her grandparents were theater actors. See more »
