Betty Buckley is an American actress best known for roles in the television show, Eight is Enough, and

Buckley’s career has moved between theater, film and television for decades.
Actress Betty Lynn Buckley was born in Fort Worth, Texas, on July 3, 1947. Buckley started honing
her performance skills very early on, singing in her church at the age of 2 and taking dance lessons a
year later. Her professional stage debut came at the tender age of 15 in a production of Stephen
Sondheim’s Gypsy. She gained additional experience by performing regularly at musical revues and
various summer stock and children’s theatrical productions. Buckley was crowned Miss Fort Worth in
1966 while attending Texas Christian University as a journalism major and head cheerleader. When
she performed at the Miss America Pageant the following year, she was spotted by a talent agent to
audition in New York where she went on to sign with the International Famous Agency.
After graduating from college, she eventually made it back to New York where she landed the part of
Martha Jefferson in the Broadway musical 1776. This was the first of many theater musicals she would
do, including Promises, Promises and Pippin’ (directed by her childhood idol Bob Fosse) early in her
career, and later Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats which earned her a Tony Award for Best Featured
Actress in a Musical and her triumphant portrayal of Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard which won
her rave critical reviews and a nomination for the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical.
Buckley’s feature film debut in Brian de Palma’s horror classic Carrie (1976) got her the role of
stepmother opposite Dick Van Patten in the hit TV series Eight Is Enough. She went on to appear in
numerous TV shows and movies, including Tender Mercies (1983), Cagney and Lacey, LA Law,
Woody Allen’s Another Woman (1988), Roman Polanski’s Frantic (1988) and Wyatt Earp (1994).
Buckley continues to perform successfully on both stage and screen.
