BIOGRAPHY

A tall willowy blonde leading lady and character actress, Sally Kellerman possesses an assertive, forthright presence that can convey both easy earnestness and prominent paranoia. Although she made her film debut at age 20 in a bit role in "Reform School Girl" (1957), she first conquered TV in the mid-1960s with striking performances on shows including "The Outer Limits" and "Star Trek." She came to prominence in film in the 1970s, notably as Major 'Hot Lips' Houlihan in Robert Altman's "M*A*S*H" (1970), for which she received an Oscar nomination as Best Supporting Actress. Not standard leading lady material, Kellerman has not always been easy to cast, and many of her films have been minor items. But she kept busy with off-beat roles in "The Last of the Red Hot Lovers" (1972), "Welcome to L.A." (1976), "A Little Romance" (1979), "Back to School" (1986) and "Happily Ever After" (1990). Her richly modulated, seductively velvety voice has also been put to good use in much voice-over work as well and she has enjoyed a secondary career as a nightclub performer as well.
