Biography

American actress who became widely popular as the man-hungry worrywart on the popular "Mary Tyler Moore Show" that ran for four years, 1970-74. She continued the same character married to a nice Jewish boy in her spin-off role in "Rhoda," 1974-1978.

Harper started as a dancer at New York Radio City Music Hall, moving on to stock productions and musicals. Following her two popular series, she concentrated on changing her image, making a pilot that fizzled in 1982 and starring in the family sitcom "Valerie" in 1986. In 1995 her series, "The Office," had a short run.

Harper's first marriage was to Richard Schaal 1964-1979 and her second marriage was to Tony Cacciotti, with one daughter, 1983. Involved in the civic drive against hunger, she rolls up her sleeves to do volunteer work in the Los Angeles, CA soup kitchen projects. In 2001, she released her autobiography, "Today I am a Ma'am."

Harper ran against Melissa Gilbert for president of the Screen Actor's Guild, a contest that Gilbert won with such a narrow margin and "too many inconsistencies" that it a rerun was called for by the guild committee on 1/07/2002.
