Harvey Brownstone conducts an in-depth interview with Sharon Gless, Legendary Emmy & Golden Globe Award Winning Actress, Author, “Apparently There Were Complaints”
About Harvey's guest:
Today’s special guest, Sharon Gless, is a beloved, multiple Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning actress who’s been dazzling audiences since she became the very last contract player at Universal Studios in 1972.
After distinguishing herself in a number of memorable roles on TV including Kathleen Faverty in Marcus Welby, Maggie Philbin in “Switch”, Sidney Enderman in “Centennial”, Penny Alston in “Turnabout”, and Jane Jeffries in “Housecalls”, she landed the iconic role of Christine Cagney in the groundbreaking TV series, “Cagney and Lacey”, which was the first TV drama with 2 female lead characters, for which she won 2 Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe Award for Best Leading Actress in a Drama Series. She went on to win another Golden Globe Award and 2 more Emmy nominations for her starring role in “The Trials of Rosie O’Neill”.
And then, for 5 glorious seasons, she became immortalized for exemplifying the warmth and loving acceptance of the ideal Mom in another groundbreaking TV show, “Queer as Folk”, which became the #1 show on the Showtime cable network, and forever changed the landscape of how the LGBTQ community was portrayed on television.
After playing Lynn Warner on “The State Within” and the evil Colleen Rose on “Nip/Tuck”, which earned her a 9th Emmy nomination, she gave us yet another Emmy nominated iconic performance, as the chain-smoking, hypochondriac mother from hell, Madeline Westen in “Burn Notice”, which ran for 7 seasons. She continues to deliver outstanding performances on TV in “The Gifted”, “Casualty”, and in the upcoming TV movie “Constance”, and in a feature film being released next year, “Fast Charlie”, co-starring Pierce Brosnan and the late James Caan. In addition to having a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, she’s been nominated for 23 prestigious acting awards, including 10 Emmy Award and 7 Golden Globe Award nominations.
And now, her best selling memoir entitled, “Apparently There Were Complaints”, which was released last year, is now coming out in paperback on November 29th. This is a deeply personal, brutally honest and highly relatable book that I simply COULD NOT put down.
