Morgan Fairchild did some episodic tv and some small roles in films, but it was her role on tv's Flamingo Road which shot her to stardom. Fairchild also had a resurgence on Friends as Chandler Bing's mother Nora.
When I met her, I was surprised at how tall she was. She wasn't wearing high heels either. She's no giant, but I would have guessed about 3 inches less.
I talked to her about her part on tv's Mork and Mindy as Mindy's somewhat snooty friend, Susan and her part on Happy Days, again playing a somewhat snooty woman. She laughed and said it was a lifetime ago, but a lot of fun.
I'm not sure what I expected from Fairchild, but she seemed pretty appreciative of her career and her fans. She seemed to be having fun talking to everyone.
