Biography by Hal Erickson

Actress Kathryn Harrold seems content with merely being one of the most brilliant, experimental actresses on the off-Broadway and "small" movie scene. Trained in her craft by Sanford Meisner and Uta Hagen, Harrold began building her theatrical reputation in the mid-1970s while teaching acting classes at NYU and Connecticut College. She made her first film, Nightwing, in 1979, and has since appeared intermittently in films ranging from the nirvana of Into the Night (1985) to the nadir of Yes, Giorgio (1982). She has been a regular on several television series, and in 1980 was cast as Lauren Bacall in the made-for-TV biopic Bogie. Long-time televiewers will probably be most familiar with Kathryn Harrold as Nola Dancy on the NBC daytimer The Doctors, as Christina LaKatzis on the succes d'estime series I'll Fly Away and as talkshow host Garry Shandling's ex-wife on cable's The Larry Sanders Show.
