Tracey Ullman was raised by her mother when her father died when she was six. It was her mother
who encouraged her to pursue her performing aspirations, and at the age of twelve she received a scholarship to stage school. She made her first professional appearance at sixteen dancing
in "Gigi" in Berlin. And on her return to England, she joined the popular "Second Generation"
dance troupe and appeared on numerous television variety programs.
Her breakthrough came at the Royal Court Theatre when
she created the role of the bizarre club singer Beverly in the improvised play, "Four in a Million". Tracey's performance won her the London Theatre Critics' Award for Most Promising New Actress of 1981.
American audiences got to know her when she was cast in such films as: "I Love You To Death"
with Kevin Kline, "Household Saints", "I'll Do Anything", Woody Allen's "Bullets Over Broadway" and Robert Altman's "Pret a Porter".
Acting isn't her only talent. As a singer Tracey has placed five singles in the top ten of
the British pop chart, and her album, "You Broke My Heart in Seventeen Places", went gold.
In the States, her single "They Don't Know" reached number eight on the Billboard Charts.
Multi-talented Tracey has also created, written, executive produced and starred in the
"Tracey Takes On..." comedy series. The show was critically acclaimed and won four Emmys,
and a CableACE award for Best Comedy Variety Series. - Photo: Unknown
