American actress whose greatest fame was as a detective in "Cagney and Lacey," from 1982, playing one of two female cops along with her partner Tyne Daly.

She started her work life as a secretary until she tried acting in a series of small roles on TV and in film, attracting Girl-Friday types along with the male lead.

TV was always her medium with the series "Marcus Welby M.D." 1974-1976, "Switch," 1975-1978 and "Centennial," 1978-1979.

Before her winning cop-show, Gless had a rocky start, battling alcoholism and a string of short-term love affairs. In Feb. 1988 she went into a drug and alcohol rehab clinic in Minnesota. After years together as companions, she married Barney Rosenzweig, the producer of "Cagney and Lacy" and of her 1990 series, "Rosie O'Neill" in May 1991. She was then 47 and he, 53.

At the age of 53, Gless was a little hefty; she carried 165 pounds on a 5' 9" frame.
