Betty Buckley

An American theater, film, and television actress and singer.

Buckley made her Broadway debut in 1969 and has been called "The voice of Broadway" by New York Magazine.

Her rendition of "Memory" in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats established her reputation.

Buckley has recorded 11 solo albums and now tours extensively across the U.S. each year.

She is also a composer - her first recording contains mostly songs she wrote. She is also featured on many Broadway compilation recordings.

She played the role of a country singer in Bruce Beresford's film Tender Mercies (1982), in which she sang the awarded song "Over You." She also appeared in the Woody Allen's film Another Woman (1988) and in Roman Polanski's Frantic (1988).

Buckley appeared in the pilot episode of ABC's new Sunday primetime hit, Brothers & Sisters, only to be replaced by Sally Field.
