Actress Doris Belack was born in New York City in 1926. She began her acting career in the realm of television, appearing on shows like Treasury Men in Action and The Patty Duke Show in the '50s and '60s. Belack soon expanded her career to include the stage as well, most notably in Broadway productions like 1960's Semi-Detached and The Last of the Red Hot Lovers. She continued to act throughout the next several decades, and while she occasionally expanded her on-camera work to include movies (like 1982's Tootsie), she would find the most prolific success with television, making appearances on shows like The Doctors, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Mr. Belvedere, Picket Fences, Touched by an Angel, and Sex and the City. Belack also played recurring and starring roles on a number of shows, like Family Album, Doug, and Law and Order.
