Born In: Memphis, Tennessee, United States
Anne Haney Thomas was an American character actress, known for her versatile performances on TV, stage and in movies. Although she began her career quite late in her life, the actress quickly became a familiar face on screen and stage. This was largely due to her stellar film performances as Mrs. Myerson in ‘Hopscotch’, Mrs. Sellner in ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’, and Greta in ‘Liar, Liar’. Since she started acting in her mid-40s, she would often get typecast in similar roles, but dedicated to her art, she always performed without any reservations. The roles that really endeared her to the American audience were her performances in popular TV series like ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’, ‘Our House’ and ‘L.A. Law’. Unlike other actors, Haney had a unique reason to join the entertainment industry. In an interview, she revealed, “My husband died, my daughter went to college, the dog got fleas, and the maid quit, so I had to come to Hollywood”. Whether it was her comedic timing or her composed dramatic performances, Haney will forever be remembered as one of the best character actresses of her time.
