A comic actress and singer almost always in Latina parts that called for an outspoken and sarcastic personality, Liz Torres has made a good living as a second banana or supporting player on sitcoms. She is perhaps best recalled as Teresa Betancort, the Puerto Rican boarder who drove Archie Bunker crazy, on "All in the Family" (CBS, 1976-77) and especially as Mahalia Sanchez, the assistant to the night manager of a bus station who drives him crazy, on "The John Larroquette Show" (NBC, 1993-96). For the latter, Torres earned two Emmy nominations as Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. She had previously been nominated for a 1989 guest appearance on the CBS sitcom "The Famous Teddy Z."
