About Candice Bergen

Candice Bergen Biography

Born May 9, 1946, in Beverly Hills, California. The daughter of ventriloquist Edgar Bergen and model Frances Westerman Bergen, Candice started her career as part of her fathers act alongside his puppets Charlie McCarthy and Mortimer Snerd. She began modeling as a teenager, and graduated into acting with the 1966 film The Group.

Bergen had critical successes with Carnal Knowledge (1971); Starting Over(1979), for which she was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award; and Gandhi (1982). In 1988 she found her niche in the politically-charged sitcom Murphy Brown (1988-1998), and launched the role for which she would become most famous. Bergen as Murphy, the independent, sarcastic, liberal anchorwoman, earned eight Emmy nominations, and won five times (in 1989, 1990, 1992, 1993, and 1995).

The show and its title character became nationally infamous in 1992, when Vice President Dan Quayle attacked the single mother TV character for being a poor role model. Her portrayal of Murphy as a hard-hitting journalist was so convincing that after Murphy Brown ended, Bergen was considered by the real-life TV news show 60 Minutes for a position as a correspondent. It might not have been a bad fit, as she is an accomplished photojournalist whose work has appeared in magazines such as Life and Playboy. Bergen published her memoir, Knock Wood, in 1984.

In 2000, Bergen began hosting her own talk show, Exhale with Candice Bergen, on Oxygen, the womens cable network founded by Oprah Winfrey, among others. It was later cancelled, but she didnt stay off the air for long. Bergen returned to television on the ABC comedy Boston Legal starring opposite William Shatner and James Spader in 2005. Playing a high-powered attorney has suited her well, she earned an Emmy Award nomination for her work on the series in 2006.

Bergens brother is Kris Bergen, a film and TV editor. She was married to the French filmmaker Louis Malle from 1980 to 1995, when he died of cancer at the age of 63. Their daughter Chloe was born in 1985. In June 2000, Bergen married her longtime boyfriend, New York real estate executive and philanthropist Marshall Rose.
