      Julie Kavner

      Julie Kavner

      Highest Rated: 92% Radio Days (1987)

      Lowest Rated: Not Available

      Birthday: Sep 7, 1950

      Birthplace: Los Angeles, California, USA

      Deft comedienne who, two years out of college, began her professional career playing sardonic, chubby Brenda Morgenstern, younger sister to Valerie Harper's title character on the long-running TV sitcom "Rhoda" (1974-78). With her wry, sarcastic delivery, her ethnic, raspy and slightly nasal whine and her self-deprecating humor, Kavner has carved a niche as a likable second banana, playing scrappy underdogs, working women and supportive wives in such films as "Bad Medicine" (1985), "Surrender" (1987) and "Awakenings" (1990), TV-movies like "No Other Love" (1979) and "Revenge of the Stepford Wives" (1980), and, of course, the animated sitcom, "The Simpsons" (1990- ), as the voice of Marge Simpson. A Woody Allen regular, she has acted in five of his films including "Hannah and Her Sisters" (1986) and "Shadows and Fog" (1992) and is reputedly the only actress to play both his mother (in "Radio Days" 1987) and his girlfriend (in "New York Stories" 1989).
