Becky Ann Baker - Rotten Tomatoes

Becky Ann Baker

Was an Army brat and traveled around with her parents from base to base. Got the acting bug after appearing in a 6th grade play. Started acting professionally in theater as a chorus girl and landed a part in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas on Broadway in 1978. Other Broadway credits include: Titanic; Assassins; All My Sons; A Streetcar Named Desire; and Good People. Big TV break came when she was cast as Jean Weir, the lovable mom on Freaks and Geeks in 1999. In 2012 was cast as Lena Dunham's mother on Girls and appeared as Katharine McPhee's mom on Smash, along with her real-life husband Dylan Baker who played McPhee's dad.  Is a founding member of New York-based theater company The Drama Dept. and is a member of Actor's Studio.
