Mary Tyler Moore

Mary Tyler Moore

Mary Tyler Moore (born December 29, 1936) is an Academy Award-nominated and seven-time Emmy Award winning American actress and comedian, primarily known for her roles in sitcoms and television.

Moore is arguably best known for The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970 - 1977), in which she starred as Mary Richards, a 30-something single woman who worked as a news producer at WJM-TV in Minneapolis, and for her early role as Laura Petrie, wife of television comedy writer Rob Petrie (played by Dick Van Dyke) on The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961 - 1966). Moore played leading roles in two of the most fondly remembered classic comedy series, making a tremendous impact on television over two decades.

She has also appeared in various films over the years. Her best-remembered performance came in 1980s Ordinary People , which garnered her an Oscar nomination for a role that was the polar opposite of the characters viewers had become accustomed to seeing her portray on television. She has also been active in charity work and various political causes, particularly diabetes and animal rights.
