Biography

Engaging TV sitcom player who, after making a number of guest appearances on a wide variety of programs, got a first chance as a series regular on the NBC comedy, "Flesh 'n' Blood" (1991), as the attorney heroine's devoted secretary. The show only lasted for eight episodes, but Gilpin had better luck with her second sitcom, the "Cheers" spinoff "Frasier" (NBC, 1993-2004), in which she excelled as the acerbic, man-hunting producer of radio psychologist Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammar). She made her TV-movie debut with 1996's "Fighting for Justice," an NBC effort starring Marliu Henner and Doug Savant.
