Terry Kiser (b. 1939) is an American actor, best known for his portrayal of the dead title-character in the comedy Weekend at Bernie's, and its sequel, Weekend at Bernie's II. During the 1970s and early 1980s Kiser became a familiar face on episodic television, most notably Three's Company, The Love Boat, Night Court, and The Golden Girls. Some of his stage performances include roles in Paris is Out!, The Castro Complex, and Shelter. Maria Karnilova (1920-2001) was an American stage actress of Russian descent who appeared in several Broadway plays and ballets. Her Broadway debut was in the play Call Me Mister (1946) as a ballerina, dancing for several more plays and recitals before originating the role of Golde in Fiddler on the Roof (1964). The role would win her a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical, and she would be nominated for a Tony again for her performance in Zorba (1969). She retired from the stage in 1981, appearing in a few films afterwards, but ultimately retiring completely from acting shortly after. She was married to fellow stage performer George S. Irving. During the '70s and '80s Vincent Gardenia (1920-1992) was one of the most familiar character actors in film, television, and on the Broadway stage. He did not launch his real film career until he was in his mid-thirties and played his first major role in The Cop Hater (1958). Some of his best-known roles include that of a bartender in 1961 in The Hustler, and Dutch Schnell in Bang the Drum Slowly (1973) opposite Robert De Niro. The latter garnered Gardenia his first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Gardenia's second nomination came in 1987 for his memorable portrayal of Cher's father in Moonstruck. The character actor was 70 when he played his final role in the Joe Pesci vehicle The Super (1991). Charles Nelson Reilly (1931-2007) made his film debut in 1957 with a small uncredited part in A Face in the Crowd. Just five years later, he won a Tony Award as Best Featured Actor in a Musical for How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (1962). During the rest of his stage career, he was nominated for two more Tony Awards. On the screen, he starred on television's The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1968-1970), for which he received an Emmy nomination. Reilly was also nominated for Emmy Awards for guest starring on The Drew Carey Show and Millennium. He lent his voice to various popular animated films like Charlotte's Web (1973) and All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989). Throughout his career, he frequently appeared on game shows as a celebrity panelist.Laura Esterman(b. 1945) is an actress of American descent, famous for her work in radio and stage productions.
