Biography

Bright and energetic brunette actress Paula Cale started her career on stage, and in 1995 landed a breakthrough recurring part on the long-running sitcom "Murphy Brown" (CBS) before securing a co-starring role on the NBC hit series "Providence" in 1999. Known for her ease in playing outspoken and slightly eccentric but likable characters, the actress initially pursued a career in education, attending Vanderbilt University for one year before winning a drama scholarship to Chicago's Goodman School of Theatre. While in Chicago, she originated the role of Suzanne, an admirer of the titular artist, in Steve Martin's "Picasso at the Lapin Agile" at the city's famed Steppenwolf Theater in 1993. When the production moved to L.A. in 1994, Cale (then billed as Paula Korologos) went with it, and her performance won the notice of the Hollywood crowd, particularly impressing Candice Bergen, who cast the actress in the acclaimed series "Murphy Brown."
