CANDICE BERGEN (Judy) is "a beautiful actress who projects intelligence, humor, vulnerability and self-reliance, all more or less simultaneously,” wrote critic Vincent Canby in the New York Times.  She proved this every week for ten years as Murphy on the critically acclaimed CBS comedy series Murphy Brown, for which she earned five Emmy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards. Prior to her successful run as Murphy, Bergen received extraordinary critical and audience response for her performances in Getting Straight, Mike Nichol's Carnal Knowledge, and Starting Over, for which she received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

She recently starred with Reese Witherspoon in Sweet Home Alabama, with Gwyneth Paltrow in A View from the Top, and opposite Sandra Bullock in the hit comedy Miss Congeniality. Her additional film credits include Rich and Famous, with Jacqueline Bisset; Richard Attenborough's Gandhi; and The Wind and the Lion, with Sean Connery.

Bergen had her own talk show on the Oxygen Network, Candice Checks It Out, where she tapped into current trends and interviewed people from all walks of life.  Two years ago, she hosted Exhale, a nightly one-hour talk show, also on the Oxygen Network. 

She attended the University of Pennsylvania and, while still in college, commuted to New York for modeling assignments. Bergen was still a student when she made her motion picture debut as the mysterious, glamorous Lakey in The Group.  Combining her acting career with an insatiable desire to see the world, Bergen then traveled to Taiwan to star opposite Steve McQueen and Sir Richard Attenborough in Robert Wise's The Sand Pebbles; to Greece, to appear in The Day the Fish Came Out; and to France to star with Yves Montand in Claude LeLouche's Vivre Pour Vivre. She also starred in T.R. Baskin, The Adventurers, Soldier Blue, The Magus, 11 Harrow House, Bite the Bullet, A Night Full of Rain, and what she refers to as "other films too horrible to mention.”

Bergen made her Broadway debut, replacing Sigourney Weaver, as Darlene in the critically acclaimed Hurly Burly, directed by long-time friend Mike Nichols, which also starred William Hurt, Judith Ivey and Ron Silver.

In addition to Murphy Brown, her television credits include three movies for CBS: Mayflower Madam, Murder: By Reason of Insanity, and most recently, Mary & Tim

Also a gifted writer and photographer, Bergen has produced numerous magazine articles and photographic essays that observe the world with a keen eye for detail and humor. Her work has included cover stories for New York, Esquire and Life magazines. Her autobiography, Knock Wood, which she worked on for five years, was released in April 1984 to critical acclaim and enjoyed several weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.

Bergen is the mother of a 17-year-old daughter, Chloe, by her late husband, film director Louis Malle.  She is married to Marshall Rose and they split their time between New York and Los Angeles.
