Holland Taylor.

Holland Taylor’s great EMMY speech for her performance on The Practice.

Holland Virginia Taylor (born January 14, 1943) is an American actress of film, stage and television. Her notable television roles include Ruth Dunbar in Bosom Buddies, senator’s wife Margaret Powers on Norman Lear’s The Powers That Be, Judge Roberta Kittleson in The Practice and Evelyn Harper in Two and a Half Men.

Early life

Taylor was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1943, the daughter of Virginia, a painter, and C. Tracy Taylor, an attorney. She is the youngest of three girls in the family; her sisters are Patricia and Pamela. Taylor attended high school at Westtown School, a Quakerboarding school in West Chester, Pennsylvania. She then majored in drama at Bennington College graduating in 1964, before moving to New York City to become an actress.

Career

Taylor’s long career began in the theater. Throughout the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s she appeared in numerous Broadway and Off-Broadway productions, including starring roles in Simon Gray‘s Butley and A. R. Gurney‘s The Cocktail Hour; for the latter she was nominated for a Drama Desk award. Taylor also has the dubious distinction of having starred in Broadway’s most infamous flop, Moose Murders, where she filled in, with less than a week’s rehearsal, for veteran character actress Eve Arden who had jumped from the sinking ship.

Taylor has been a long-time, major supporter of Aid For AIDS in Los Angeles, serving on their Honorary Board and as an ongoing participant in their largest annual fundraiser, Best In Drag Show, among other fundraising efforts.
