Morgan Fairchild

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.
