Profile Bio Text
Beatrice "Bebe" Neuwirth (born December 31, 1958) is an American actress, singer and dancer. She is probably best known for her portrayal of Dr. Lilith Sternin, Dr. Frasier Crane's wife and ex-wife, both on the TV sitcom Cheers (in a starring role), and its spin-off Frasier (in a recurring guest role). Her screen credits include Green Card, Bugsy, Say Anything, Jumanji, Summer of Sam, Liberty Heights, Tadpole (for which the Seattle Film Critics named her Best Supporting Actress), The Associate, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Malice, The Big Bounce, The Faculty and Woody Allen`s Celebrity.
On television, Neuwirth had a role from 1986 to 1993 as Dr. Lilith Sternin, the conservatively dressed and emotionally repressed psychiatrist who married Dr. Frasier Crane on the hit comedy series Cheers. From the fourth to the seventh season Neuwirth portrayed Lilith in a very regular recurring capacity, and appeared on the show as a main star from season eight to the final season, season eleven. Like Kelsey Grammer when he started on the show as Frasier Crane, she was not immediately given star billing in the opening credits, but at the end for seasons eight and nine; she appeared in the opening credits with her own portrait in seasons ten and eleven. She auditioned for this role with her arm in a sling, following a fall a week earlier. She won two Emmy Awards for the role, in 1990 and 1991. The character also made an appearance in the series Wings and 11 episodes of the Cheers spin-off Frasier, which earned her a 1995 Emmy Award nomination as Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. Her additional small screen credits include Deadline (2000), Hack (2003), Law & Order: Trial by Jury in (2005), Law and Order: Special Victims Unit in 1999 as a modeling agent/suspect, and again in 2005 as A.D.A Tracey Kibre, as well as the miniseries Wild Palms and an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. She has appeared as herself in episodes of Will and Grace, Strangers with Candy and Celebrity Jeopardy!. She voiced as Widow Tweed in The Fox and the Hound 2. In 2009 she co-starred as Ms. Kraft in the remake of Fame.
