Donna Reed gave her an early start on television

Swoosie Kurtz of Mike & Molly

Swoosie Kurtz, born September 6, 1944

Kurtz is probably recognized from the hit CBS sitcom Mike & Molly (2010–2016). But she has received eight Emmy Award nominations, with one win for Carol and Company in 1990. She also is the recipient of a Primetime Emmy Award, and two Tony Awards.

She got her entry into television in 1962 with a small part on The Donna Reed Show. She played the part of Mimi in “The Golden Trap” (Season 4, Episode 23).
