Kathleen Turner

Good morning, I’m Kathleen Turner and I’m famous for being an actress. I was born in Springfield, Missouri on June 19, 1954. I grew up overseas and graduated from the American school in London. I attended Missouri State University in Springfield for two years before I changed my major and studied theater in Maryland. I am known for my raspy voice. I have had a productive career in films, television and theater.  I have received many award nominations and won the Golden Globe. I suffered from arthritis which impacted my career. I support many charities today. You may have seen some of my work in Law and Order or my many movies. I am still working in the field of acting.
