Cindy Williams is best known for her role as Shirley Feeney in the television series “Laverne and Shirley,” which won the TV Land Award for Fan Favorite. In addition, she was honored with a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame (2004). In April she won Best Actress at the L.A. Comedy Film Festival for the Indy film “Stealing Roses”. She recently completed the First National Tour of “Nunset Boulevard,” a sequel to “Nunsense” in which she reprised her role as Reverend Mother. Williams’ other stage credits include “The Drowsy Chaperone” (Broadway), “Death Trap,” with Elliot Gould (National tour), and “Moon over Buffalo” and “The Odd Couple” with Joanne Worley.
Her film credits include Travels with My Aunt directed by George Cukor, The Conversation, directed by Francis Ford Coppola, and George Lucas’s American Graffiti for which she received a British Academy award nomination in 1974 as Best Supporting actress. Unfortunately she was beat out by Ingrid Bergman, and Williams still wonders how the heck that happened!
