Meet Christine Baranski, The Big Bang Theory actress who is up for an Emmy for her role as Dr. Beverly Hofstadter in the hit show on CBS. Baranski was born in Buffalo, New York on May 2nd, 1952 which makes her to be 58 years of age. Christine is of Polish decent and came from a family of talented actors. After attending Villa Maria Academy, Christine went on to study at Juilliard.

Not only has Christine had great success on the theatrical stage, but she went on to become a huge talent in both small and big screen. Some of her more notable roles include that of Katherine Archer in The Birdcage, Mary Sunshine in the hit musical Chicago, my personal favorite Martha May Whovier in How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Tanya in the hit musical Mamma Mia!

Christine is hoping to add another award to her already long list of accolades. She is currently nominated for her role on The Big Bang Theory. While she has a good chance to win amongst tight competition, she’ll have to beat out Betty White for her role as host on “Saturday Night Live”. Others up for an award in her category for Best Guest Actress in a comedy include: Tina Fey, “Saturday Night Live”, Kristin Chenoweth in “Glee”, Elaine Stritch in “30 Rock”, Kathryn Joosten on “Desperate Housewives” and Jane Lynch on “Two and a Half Men”.

She married Matthew Cowles in 1983 and together have two daughters.
