Tovah’s parents are Jewish; she has an older brother, David, who is the Pulitzer Prize Award- nominated playwright, known for his work on “Miss Evers’ Boys”. Young Tovah spent her childhood years in Scarsdale, New York, and attended Sarah Lawrence College, where she was a part of the National Music Camp, and one of best students in the camp’s drama division. She then enrolled at HB Studio in Greenwich Village, New York City, where she studied drama, and after obtaining her degree commenced her career by joining Guthrie Theater led by Michael Langham. In her early years, Tovah received the McKnight Fellowship in Acting award.

Initially, Tovah used a different name – Terri Fairchild – but soon decided to return to her roots, and incorporate her Jewish name fully into her career. She made her debut on Broadway in the musical “Cyrano” in 1973 next to Christopher Plummer, and then starred in the play “Yentl” in 1975, since when she has made numerous Broadway appearances, winning a number of nominations and awards, including four Tony Award nominations, three Drama Desk Awards, two in the category for Outstanding Actress in a Play for “Yentl” and “Lend me a Tenor”, and one for Outstanding One-Person Show for “Golda’s Balcony” – the particular show became the longest-running one-woman play in Broadway history in January 2005. She has also created two cabaret acts, “Tovah: Crossovah! From Broadway to Cabaret”, and “Tovah: Out of Her Mind!”, and has appeared not only in the USA, but also Hong Kong and Australia. In recent years, Towah appeared as Berthe in “Pippin” (2013), and as Mama Rose in “Gypsy”, while in 2015 she performed a one-woman show which she called “Aging Is Optional”.

After the successful start in theatre, Tovah decided to display her talents on screen, and started auditioning for motion picture roles. She made her debut in the television horror mystery film “Scream, Pretty Peggy” in 1973, starring Bette Davis, Ted Bessell and Sian Barbara Allen. Three years later she portrayed Marta McKee in the TV romantic drama series “Ryan’s Hope” (1976), and then played Katherine Hepburn in the biopic about film director and pilot “The Amazing Howard Hughes” in 1977, starring next to Tommy Lee Jones, Ed Flanders, and James Hampton. She then came to prominence for portraying Helena Slomova in the TV mini-series “Holocaust” (1978), which earned her a Primetime Emmy Award- nomination in the category Outstanding Continuing Performance by a Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. She finished the decade with a couple of television films, including “The Triangle Factory Fire Scandal” (1979), and continued in the same way in the early ‘80s, with such films as “The Women’s Room” (1980), and then starred in the biopic about Bob Marcucci “The Idolmaker” (1980), before appearing in the highly-acclaimed comedy film “Brewster’s Millions” in 1985, with Richard Pryor, John Candy and Lonette McKee in the lead roles.

She had to wait until the early ‘90s for a new successful screen appearance, playing Danielle Melnick, a reccuring character in the crime drama series “Law & Order” (1991-2007), appearing in 13 episodes, which earned her a second Primetime Emmy Award nomination, this time in the category Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series, She then portrayed Iva Schlesinger in the Golden Globe Award- nominated drama film “Citizen Cohn” in 1992, and in 1999 was Lillian Kantrowitz in the romantic drama “A Walk on the Moon”, starring Diane Lane Viggo Mortensen, and Anna Paquin.

Being away from theatre helped her improve her on-screen career as she became more focused on film roles, and in 2001 she starred in the romantic comedy “Kissing Jessica Stein”, next to Jennifer Westfeldt and Heather Juergensen, then in 2004 had one of the lead roles in the comedy “Tollbooth”, followed in 2005 by starring in another comedy “Life on the Ledge”. In 2007 she starred in the German production film “Liebesleben” – translated to “Love Life” – with Neta Garty and Rade Serbedzija, which also added to her wealth.

She didn’t have any more notable screen appearances until 2015 when she portrayed Nora in the horror thriller “Angelica”, with Janet McTeer and Jena Malone, and also was selected for the role of Deanna Monroe in the horror drama series “The Walking Dead”, appearing in its sixth season, and also appeared as Naomi Bunch in the TV comedy-musical series “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” (2015-2017), further increasing her wealth. For the time being, Tovah is working on several films, including “Remember Amnesia” which is currently in post-production and is yet to receive a release date, and “Love Type D”, which will be available in theaters in 2018.

Regarding her personal life, Tovah has been married to attorney Andrew Harris Levy since 1977; the couple has two children.

Tovah is well-known for her philanthropic activities supporting Jewish causes, for which she received the Israel Peace Medal, Eleanor Roosevelt Humanities Award, Hadassah’s Myrtle Wreath, Jewish Image Award in 2002, and Performing Arts award in 2006, presented by the National Foundation for Jewish Culture.

Tovah is a great adventurist; back in 2015, she hiked Mount Kilimanjaro with her son, and also plans on traveling the Trans-Siberian railroad.
