Polly Holliday Wiki: Salary, Married, Wedding, Spouse, Family

The normally erudite, soft-spoken and well-mannered Alabama-born actress Polly Holliday had accumulated quite an extensive theater background by the time she hit it big on 70s TV as the brash, uninhibited, gum-cracking waitress Florence Jean Castleberry (Flo for short) on the popular sitcom Alice (1976).

1Her first Broadway appearance following her departure from long-term TV series hits ("Alice" and "Flo") was the comedy "Arsenic and Old Lace," alongside another actress (Jean Stapleton) who was also trying to get some distance from her own long series of TV hits ("All in the Family" and "Archie Bunker's Place"). Interestingly, before "Arsenic" landed on Broadway, Stapleton appeared in the national tour with Marion Ross in the Holliday role. Ross also was aiming for her first Broadway role after a long TV run in "Happy Days" but the producers re-cast the role for Holliday when Ross was unable to be based in New York.
2Holliday attended Alabama College for Women (now the University of Montevallo, a small liberal arts college just below Birmingham, Alabama).
3Wore a red wig during her time on Alice (1976).
4Polly is a member of The Episcopal Church and was featured in an ad campaign on
5Close friends with actor Dustin Hoffman. They worked together in All the President's Men (1976) and Hoffman tried to get her cast as a producer in Tootsie (1982).
6Was nominated for Broadway's 1990 Tony Award as best actress (featured role - play) for playing Big Mama in a revival of Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
7Polly's huge, award-winning success as Flo on Alice (1976) did not endear her to the titular star of the show, Linda Lavin, who was increasingly irritated at having the attention and the show stolen from under her. It was reportedly due to this friction that Polly was encouraged to leave for her own spin-off series Flo (1980), which did not succeed. Alice (1976) remained a hit for many years after.
8Played Flo on the tv show Alice (1976), which was based on Diane Ladd's character from the movie Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974) Both were nominated for the highest awards in their medium for playing Flo, Polly for an Emmy and Diane for the Oscar. They both lost.
