Mary Tyler Moore

Biography: Mary Tyler Moore was born on December 29th, 1936, in Brooklyn, New York, but she grew up in Southern California. Originally trained as a dancer, Mary became known as "The Happy Hotpoint Girl" before she even graduated High School. Her first work as a regular on a series was as the secretary in "Richard Diamond, Private Detective." She quit after three months because only her legs and voice were used. After this, she appeared on many series but got her big break in 1961 when she got the part of Laura Petrie on "The Dick Van Dyke Show." She won two Emmys for that role. After the show ended, she had nothing but failures, until a TV special with Dick Van Dyke in 1969. This inspired the network to give her a show of her own. This was "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and lasted from 1970-1977, thanks to the characters of: Mary Richards (Mary Tyler Moore) Rhoda Morganstern (Valerie Harper) Phyllis Lynstrom (Cloris Leachman) Lou Grant (Ed Asner) Murray Slaughter (Gaven McCloud) Sue AnneMary Tyler Moore was born on December 29th, 1936, in Brooklyn, New York, but she grew up in Southern California.
