Veteran stage actress Judith Ivey is a two-time Tony Award winner; she won the Tony for Best Featured Actress in a Play for Steaming (1983), and later, Hurlyburly (1985). Her performances in Park Your Car in Harvard Yard (1992), and a revival of The Heiress (2013) were both nominated for Tony Awards. Ivey's television and film work extends over four decades; that as it may be, she is often associated with her one-year run as Texan B.J. Poteet on Designing Women (1986), replacing Julia Duffy, who had replaced Delta Burke in 1991. She also appeared in The Devil's Advocate (1997), What the Deaf Man Heard (1997) (for which she received an Emmy nomination), Will & Grace (1998), Nurse Jackie (2009), Grey's Anatomy (2005), Big Love (2006), White Collar (2009), and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999).
