BIOGRAPHY

While comic actress Christine Baranski was the winner of multiple Tony Awards for her extensive work on Broadway, she was more widely known by television audiences for her scene-stealing performance as Cybill Shepherd's dagger-tongued, gin-swilling best friend Maryann Thorpe on the CBS sitcom, "Cybill" (1995-98). Her delicious turn earned numerous accolades, including a 1995 Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress, and begat a prolific screen career that included spirited performances in features "The Birdcage" (1996), "Bowfinger" (1999), and "Chicago" (2002), which also showcased the actress' later-career tendency towards musicals. Throughout the years, Baranski also maintained a steady presence onstage and on television with several Emmy Award-nominated guest spots on sitcoms. A rare performer welcome in both mediums, she unfailingly delivered laughs by tossing off Oscar Wilde-worthy one-liners and sending up the image of self-absorbed "society" types better than anyone of her generation.
