JANE CURTIN (Joyce) first gained national attention when she made her TV debut in 1975 as one of the original members of the Not Ready for Prime Time Players on the hit late-night series "Saturday Night Live.” During her five-year run on that show, she received critical acclaim and two Emmy nominations for her creation of many memorable characters.

She subsequently starred with Susan Saint James for five years on the popular television series "Kate & Allie,” twice earning the Emmy Award as Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her portrayal of affable divorcée Allie Lowell. Curtin went on to a successful six-year run as Dr. Mary Albright on the NBC hit "3rd Rock from the Sun.”

Curtin's other television credits include the critically acclaimed miniseries "Common Ground,” as well as the television movies "Divorce Wars” with Tom Selleck and "Maybe Baby” with Dabney Coleman.

Her feature film credits include "Antz,” "Coneheads,” "How to Beat the High Cost of Living,” "Suspicion,” "Mr. Mike's Mondo Video” and "O.C. & Stiggs.”

Born and raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Curtin studied drama at Northeastern University. She was a member of the improvisational theater group, The Proposition for four years before going on a national tour with a number of plays, including the comedy "Last of the Red Hot Lovers.” She appeared on Broadway with Joanne Woodward as Prossie in George Bernard Shaw's "Candida” and reprised the role on television. Her other stage credits include the Off-Broadway musical revue "Pretzels,” which she co-wrote, and several appearances in A.R. Gurney's "Love Letters.” She appeared in the Westport Country Playhouse production of "Our Town,” which also played on Broadway to a sold-out run in late 2002 with Curtin reprising her role. Most recently, she appeared in "The Librarian" series on TNT and the Disney feature "The Shaggy Dog” with Tim Allen.
