Carol Kane

Highest Rated: 98% Annie Hall (1977)

Lowest Rated: 0% Theodore Rex (1996)

Birthday: Jun 18, 1952

Birthplace: Cleveland, Ohio, USA

Pixie-like in both frame and voice, Oscar-nominated actress Carol Kane's offbeat turns in films like "Hester Street" (1975), "Annie Hall" (1977), "Addams Family Values" (1993) and the series "Taxi" (ABC/NBC, 1978-1983) made her an endearing go-to actress for quirky parts in film and on television. Though her helium-high voice and talent for accents made her a natural for comedy - most notably as Andy Kaufman's equally unintelligible wife on "Taxi," which earned her two Emmys - she could be an intense presence in dramas like "Carnal Knowledge" (1970), "Dog Day Afternoon" (1975) and "Trees Lounge" (1996). Still, it was the roles with a tinge of fantasy, like her Madame Morrible in the musical "Wicked," that had the most resonance for audiences, and she happily obliged in a wide variety of projects that made use of her unique talents.
