Biography

Glamorous and with a perfectly arch delivery, Wendie Malick made a career playing sharp, formidable women. Often cast as an ex-wife, doctor or authority figure, she was able to command - and steal - any scene she played, and racked up perhaps one of the most impressive list of TV credits of any of her peers. Whether it was as the wry Judith Tupper Stone on "Dream On" (HBO, 1990-96), her beloved turn as the boozy, brilliant ex-model Nina Van Horn on "Just Shoot Me!" (NBC, 1997-2003), or one of the other countless programs or movies on her résumé, Malick and her talent stood out. With a devilish grin and wit to match, she always seemed smarter, sexier and more stylish than her material, which kept audiences hoping to see her pop up as often as possible.

Bonus Trivia

.

Malick admits that for a long time she was cast as "the vicious, tall brunette lawyer or doctor." During one season, she killed three husbands in three different TV series.

.

Malick once worked in the congressional offices of Jack Kemp when he was the representative from her Buffalo, NY, district.

.

"It's interesting 'cause I think all actors walk a very fine line between total insecurity -- 'Will I ever work again, will they hate me, will I get this job?' -- and feeling like, 'Oh my God, I'm on top of the world, I am really good.'" - from www.ctvnews.ca, January 24, 2011

.

"The interesting thing is that people probably know me best from my comedy, but I started out as a dramatic actress. I do a lot of plays in between my television work, or independent roles where I get to stretch and do those kind of roles. I'm probably best known for my work on 'Just Shoot Me' and 'Dream On' and 'Frasier' and all that, but I come out of a theater background and so that was actually not so foreign to me." - from www.movieline.com, July 14, 2010

.

In the early days of her career, Malick auditioned for the role of Diane on the NBC sitcom "Cheers."
