Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Glamorous and with a perfectly arch delivery, Wendie Malick made a career playing sharp, formidable women. Often cast as an ex-wife, doctor or authority figure, she was able to command - and steal - any scene she played, and racked up perhaps one of the most impressive list of TV credits of any of her peers. Whether it was as the wry Judith Tupper Stone on "Dream On" (HBO, 1990-96), her beloved turn as the boozy, brilliant ex-model Nina Van Horn on "Just Shoot Me!" (NBC, 1997-2003), or one of the other countless programs or movies on her résumé, Malick and her talent stood out. With a devilish grin and wit to match, she always seemed smarter, sexier and more stylish than her material, which kept audiences hoping to see her pop up as often as possible.

Notes

Malick admits that for a long time she was cast as "the vicious, tall brunette lawyer or doctor." During one season, she killed three husbands in three different TV series.

"I was a ham. I had no fear. I was totally confident. While other kids were playing with dolls, (I launched) garage productions in which I was director and the female and male leads." --Malick quoted in PR for "Dream On"

Malick once worked in the congressional offices of Jack Kemp when he was the representative from her Buffalo, NY, district.
