      Mary Louise Wilson

      Mary Louise Wilson

      Highest Rated: 97% Zelig (1983)

      Lowest Rated: 13% Everybody Wins (1990)

      Birthday: Nov 12, 1931

      Birthplace: New Haven, Connecticut, USA

      A respected presence on the Broadway stage for more than five decades, Mary Louise Wilson tackled challenging roles in dramas and musicals, including "Cabaret" and "Grey Gardens," while enjoying a more modest second career as a film and television actress in Woody Allen's period comedy "Zelig" (1983), mob drama "The Sopranos" (HBO, 1997-2007) and indie sleeper "Nebraska" (2013), among other titles. Her stage career began in 1963 on an ignominious note in the failed musical "Hot Spot," but Wilson soon graduated to major productions like Bacharach and David's "Promises, Promises" and a 1974 revival of "Gypsy." Film and television began with minor parts in the early '70s before gradually encompassing supporting and character turns in major features like the Tom Hanks comedy "The Money Pit" (1986) and the romantic comedy-drama "Green Card" (1990). Her long stage career began to receive its due in the late '90s with awards for the one-woman show "Full Gallop" in 1995 and a Tony nod for "Cabaret" in 1998. Almost a decade passed before Wilson would finally win the Tony for the musical "Grey Gardens," which sealed her status as one of the American theater's most talented and versatile figures.
