With sharp comic timing and a mellifluous British accent, Jane Leeves held up her end of the "Niles and Daphne" super-couple pairing that helped power "Frasier" (NBC, 1993-2004) into one of the most critically respected and beloved sitcoms of all time. Although she received her start as scantily-clad eye candy on "The Benny Hill Show" (ITV, 1951-1991), Leeves showed her strength by moving to Los Angeles on a whim and enduring all the requisite struggles and starvation en route to stardom. Her memorable roles on "Murphy Brown" (CBS, 1988-1998) and as "Marla the virgin" on "Seinfeld" (NBC, 1989-1998) led to her sitcom-in-Seattle breakthrough as Daphne Moon. Although she chose to focus more on her family than her career post-"Frasier" Leeves worked steadily, eventually teaming up with Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and Betty White for TV Land's original sitcom, "Hot in Cleveland" (2010-15). Her success was quiet and consistent, and Leeves found herself in an excellent position to decide how often she worked, and in what projects - the dream of almost any successful actor.
