Georgia was born as the younger daughter of Ruth Caroline and Benjamin Franklin Engel. She is the sister of Robin Ruth Engel who won the 1967 Miss Hawaii pageant. Georgia went to Kodiak Island Borough School District in Alaska – her father was in the US Coast Guard – before attending Walter Johnson High School. She later enrolled at the Academy of the Washington Ballet as well as the University of Hawaii at Mānoa, from which she obtained her degree. Upon graduation Engel moved to Washington D.C. where she joined the American Light Opera Company. In 1969 she relocated to New York City and subsequently became involved in several off-Broadway productions such as “Lend an Ear” and “The House of Blue Leaves”. In December 1969, Georgia made her debut Broadway appearance in the theater production of “Hello, Dolly”. All these ventures provided the basis for Georgia Engel’s net worth, and set the foundation for her acting career.

She debuted on the big screen in 1971 when she was cast for a supporting role of Margot in Miloš Forman’s English-language debut, the comedy movie “Taking Off”, for which performance, Georgia was rewarded with a nomination for the prestigious BAFTA Award. In 1972 she appeared in the French thriller “The Outside Man” before landing the memorable role of Georgette Franklin Baxter in “The Mary Tyler Moore” TV series. This role, which she portrayed ’til 1977 when the show was cancelled, brought Engel two consecutive Primetime Emmy Award nominations, in 1976 and 1977. It is certain that all these engagements helped Georgia Engel to establish herself as a young, prominent actress as well as to massively boost her net worth as well.

Ever since, she has maintained a continuous streak of acting engagements, primarily in TV series, adding a handful of memorable roles to her acting portfolio, including Loretta Smoot in “Goodtime Girls”, Susan Elliot in “Jennifer Slept Here” as well as Shirley Burleigh in “Coach” and Pat MacDougall in “Everybody Loves Raymond” – the latter role earned her nominations for Primetime Emmy Award three years in a row, between 2003 and 2005 as well as two consecutive Gold Derby Awards, in 2004 and 2005. Some other small screen appearances include “Passions”, “Two and a Half Men” and the recurring role of Mamie Sue Johnson in TV Land’s sitcom “Hot in Cleveland”. Doubtlessly, all these accomplishments helped Georgia Engel to dramatically increase the total size of her wealth.

Apart from her on-camera appearances, in 2006 Georgia starred in the Broadway musical production “The Drowsy Chaperone”, while between 2004 and 2010 she occasionally appeared in several productions of The Muny Theater. Georgia also voice acted in several motion pictures of the “Open Season” franchise. It is certain that all these achievements have helped Georgia Engel to add a significant sum to her net worth.

When it comes to her personal life, Georgia Engel has managed to keep it private – there aren’t any relevant data about her private matters or affairs, except that she has never married.

1Her voice
1As a young teenager when I was attending ballet school, my teacher told me I'd never be a ballerina and I was never much of a singer, but I continued to get leading roles in musical theatre because of the comedy. I consider comedy as a very special gift to me. So many people ask if I hate doing similar roles but I try to explain that even within the specialized area of light comedy and ditzy blondes, there are wonderful nuances that are infinitely interesting to me.
2Although I play silly parts, in order for others to share in the laughter I think it's important to have a heart that's full of joy and gratitude. Joy is a very holy thing and we can never own it. We can only reflect it.
1Currently touring off-Broadway with the Lisa Lambert show "The Drowsy Chaperone" scheduled to end in July 2008. [March 2008]
2Her sister, Robin Engel, was Miss Hawaii in 1967.
3Has had regular or recurring roles in five sitcoms, but her enduring claim to fame is her first one, as the dingy, eternally naive Georgette, girlfriend-turned-wife of anchorman Ted Baxter, on Mary Tyler Moore (1970). The featherbrain typecast has been impossible for her to shake.
4Appears mostly on the stage these days and is based in New York. In 2001, she toured with Barbara Eden in the female version of "The Odd Couple.".
5Attended the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
