Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

An attractive brown-haired actress who got her break playing one of a trio of young overweight sisters on the Fox sitcom "Babes" (1990-91). Lesley Boone has worked steadily since earning her SAG card for guest starring on an episode of "Hooperman" (ABC) in the late 1980s. Adept at evincing both sympathy and strength in her portrayals, Boone was often saddled with roles as the heavy girl with a heart of gold, but brought grace and humanity to the often stereotyped characters. Guest shots on the series "L.A. Law" (NBC), "Growing Pains" and "Doogie Howser, MD" (both ABC) were followed by a regular role on the Fox sitcom "Babes". Here she played Darlene, an unemployed woman turned full-figured model, the younger sister of Wendie Jo Sperber's Charlene and Susan Peretz's Darlene, all three up and coming single Manhattanites crowded into one tiny apartment. After the single season of "Babes" ended, Boone guested in an episode of Fox's "Parker Lewis Can't Lose", playing an unpopular girl the suave title character has unknowingly fallen for on a computer bulletin board. Boone worked as a voice actor throughout her career, lending her talents to the comic strip character "Cathy" among others. In 1994 Boone...

An attractive brown-haired actress who got her break playing one of a trio of young overweight sisters on the Fox sitcom "Babes" (1990-91). Lesley Boone has worked steadily since earning her SAG card for guest starring on an episode of "Hooperman" (ABC) in the late 1980s. Adept at evincing both sympathy and strength in her portrayals, Boone was often saddled with roles as the heavy girl with a heart of gold, but brought grace and humanity to the often stereotyped characters.

Here she played Darlene, an unemployed woman turned full-figured model, the younger sister of Wendie Jo Sperber's Charlene and Susan Peretz's Darlene, all three up and coming single Manhattanites crowded into one tiny apartment. After the single season of "Babes" ended, Boone guested in an episode of Fox's "Parker Lewis Can't Lose", playing an unpopular girl the suave title character has unknowingly fallen for on a computer bulletin board. Boone worked as a voice actor throughout her career, lending her talents to the comic strip character "Cathy" among others.

In 1994 Boone returned to on screen pursuits, guesting on an episode of ABC's "The Mommies" and making her big screen debut with a cameo in "City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold". The following year she had a featured role in the self-help parodying comedy "Stuart Saves His Family", playing Stuart Smalley's sister Jodie, a young woman prone to fits of hysteria who self-medicates with too much food. 1995 also saw the actress with a memorable television guest role on "Wings" (NBC), playing the high school nemesis who Helen (Crystal Bernard) runs into at their reunion. A recurring role on ABC's "High Incident" followed in 1996. Her portrayal of a high-strung waitress in the Jonathan Taylor Thomas holiday vehicle "I'll Be Home for Christmas" reacquainted audiences, and a regular supporting role as Molly, "everybody's best friend" on NBC's critically-acclaimed breakout series "Ed" (2000- ) would make her talents all the more apparent to viewers nationwide. Continuing big screen pursuits, Boone was featured in the independent comedy "Pride & Peril" (2000), playing a real estate agent trying to help a patriarch (Bernie Sparago) sell the family home to which his grown children have subsequently returned.
