Linda Lavin was a daughter of Lucille, an opera singer, and David J. Lavin, a businessman, and grew up in Maine, where she went to the Waynflete School. Linda later moved to the College of William & Mary, where she participated in numerous drama productions, and after graduation appeared in many Broadway shows.

In 1963, Linda debuted on television in an episode of the Primetime Emmy Award-nominated series “Doctors and the Nurses”, while in 1967 she worked on her first TV movie – a Primetime Emmy Award-nominated “Damn Yankees!” with Phil Silvers and Lee Remick. In 1974, Lavin appeared in another Primetime Emmy Award-nominated TV movie called “The Morning After” starring Dick Van Dyke, while from 1975 to 1976, she played in five episodes of the Golden Globe Award-winning series “Barney Miller”. From 1976 to 1985, Lavin starred in the title role in “Alice”, appearing in 202 episodes and winning two Golden Globes in 1979 and 1980. The popularity of the series and her acting skills helped Linda to increase her net worth significantly.

In 1984, Lavin played in the Oscar-nominated movie “The Muppets Take Manhattan” alongside Jim Henson, Frank Oz, and Dave Goelz, and she continued to star in such TV movies as “A Place to Call Home” (1987), and “Lena: My 100 Children” (1987). From 1992 to 1993, she played Edie Kurland in 26 episodes of “Room for Two”, while in 1998, Linda appeared as Florie Bloom in 13 episodes of “Conrad Bloom”. In the early 2000s, Lavin had roles in such TV series as “The Sopranos” (2002), “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” (2002), and in “The O.C.” (2004-2005), adding further to her net worth.

In 2010, Lavin had a part in “The Back-up Plan” starring Jennifer Lopez and Alex O’Loughlin, while two years later she appeared in “Wanderlust” with Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd. From 2013 to 2014, Lavin played Lorna Harrison in 14 episodes of “Sean Saves the World”, while from 2014 to 2015, she had parts in three episodes of a Golden Globe Award-winning series “The Good Wife”.

Most recently, Linda worked in “The Intern” (2015) alongside Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway, and Rene Russo, “Manhattan Night” (2016) starring Adrien Brody, and in “Bakery in Brooklyn” (2016), all of which increased her net worth. Currently, she is filming “How to Be a Latin Lover” with Eugenio Derbez, Salma Hayek, and Rob Lowe, which will be premiered later in 2017.

Regarding her personal life, Linda Lavin was married to Ron Leibman from 1969 to 1981, and then to Kip Niven (1982-92). In 2005, Linda married her third husband, Steve Bakunas. She doesn’t have any children, and is currently living in New York City.

1Bea Arthur is the only true artist of the 20th century.
2I discovered that the character of 'Alice' represented 80% of the working women in this country, the blue collar and pink collar women. Hundreds of women have come up to me and said, 'It was because of watching "Alice" that I could get through another day with the baby in a high chair. I knew if SHE could do it, I could do it. I could go back to school, I could get off welfare, I could change my life.'
3You must tap into your own fears and pains and anxieties. And you remember. Dreams come up and nightmares come up. Once you get the understanding of the feelings, you describe them with behavior. That's how I work. I don't speak for anyone else.

She has appeared there in such productions as "Doubt," "Collected Stories," "Driving Miss Daisy" and "The Tale of the Allergist's Wife".

5Best remembered by the public for her starring role in Alice (1976).
6Won Broadway's 1987 Tony Award as Best Actress (Play) for "Broadway Bound."
