Although she's an accomplished dancer, Broadway actress, and two-time Tony winner, Neuwirth is still best known-much to her chagrin-as the prim Dr. Lilith Sternin from the TV shows Cheers.
Neuwirth began dancing at age five and studied at Julliard before making her Broadway debut as Sheila in A Chorus Line in 1980. She's continued to perform on stage ever since, earning a Best Actress Tonys for Sweet Charity and Chicago and originating the role of Morticia in The Addams Family. But despite having spent the bulk of her career in musical theater, she's most famous for playing the pale and prissy Lilith Sternin (the wife of Kelsey Grammer's character Dr. Frasier Crane) on Cheers from 1986 to 1993. After leaving the show, Neuwirth had a recurring guest spot on Frasier and a stint on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, which she parlayed into a starring role on the short-lived spin-off Law and Order: Trial by Jury. Her film career has been less stellar- her resume includes Jumanji, The Faculty, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, and the Fame remake.
Neuwirth was married to theater director Paul Dorman from 1984 to 1991, and got engaged to fellow dancer Michael Danek in 1997 before calling it off in 1999. She eventually married wino Chris Calkins and has since been been linked to the diminutive politico George Stephanopoulos. [Image via Getty]
