Since the late 1980s, American audiences have embraced the "veddyBritish" talents of character actress Jane Carr -- she with theclose-set eyes, lilting voice, trowel jaw and bubbly disposition. Ithelps, of course, having natural comedic timing and the necessary vocalskills to be in constant demand. She was born Ellen Jane Carr on August 13, 1950, in Loughton, Essex. Thedaughter of Patrick Carr, a steel erector, and Gwendoline Rose (néeClark), a postal employee, an innate gift for performing was discoveredearly on by a teacher.

As a result, she took acting classes at the ArtsEducational School and Corona Stage School, both in London. Jane made her stage debut at age 14 in a production of "The Spider'sWeb", then went on to appear as the impressionable, ill-fated student"Mary McGregor" in "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie", starring'Vanessa Redgrave' at the Wyndham's Theatre in 1966. Earningsmashing reviews, Jane recreated her shy, stuttering misfit with adelicate mixture of pathos and poignancy in the film version of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1969) , this time withOscar-winning 'Maggie Smith (I)' at the helm as the dangerouslyinfluential schoolteacher. A year later, Jane displayed just howextensive her range is projecting devilish menace and merriment in thelittle known but excellent cult black comedy Something for Everyone (1970) , which became a cinematichighlight in the careers of both 'Michael York (I)' and'Angela Lansbury' , as well. In the early 70s, Jane made fine use of her prim, "plain Jane" looks forcomic effect on several British TV series and in guest appearances.

Loftier moments came with the superb series "Upstairs, Downstairs" (1971) and a production of Daphne Laureola (1978) (TV) , that starred esteemed acting couple'Laurence Olivier' and 'Joan Plowright' . Never far from the stage, Jane appeared in "Spring Awakening" in 1974and earned a 1977 'Laurence Olivier' nomination for her work in"Once a Catholic". In 1978, she became a member of the RoyalShakespeare Company (RSC) and added a solid body of classics to hertheatrical resumé, including "A Midsummer Night's Dream" (Oliviernomination), "The Tempest", "As You Like It", "Much Ado About Nothing","The Merchant of Venice" (with 'Alec Guinness' ) and "The MerryWives of Windsor". She also reconnected with her "Jean Brodie" co-star'Maggie Smith (I)' in a production of "The Way of the World" in1985. It was not until 1986 that Jane came to the States playing multiple keyroles in the epic RSC revival of "The Life and Adventures of NicholasNickleby" on Broadway.

When the touring company returned to England,Jane elected to stay in Los Angeles. The following year, she marriedChicago-born actor 'Mark Arnott (I)' . They have a son,'Dash Arnott' (aka Dashiel James Arnott). Jane proceeded to develop an American fanbase after being cast in therole of warm and fizzy Louise Mercer in the sitcom "Dear John" (1988) , which lasted four seasons. With her chirpyBritish tones, she also managed to carve a career for herself inanimated voicework.

While she continues to appear occasionally on TVand in films, she hasn't found quite the showcase she did with "Dear John" (1988) , but has enhanced a number of suchoff-kiltered shows as "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (2000) and "Monk" (2002) with her unique brand of comedy. Recent plays have included "The Cider House Rules", "Noises Off","Blithe Spirit" (as "Madame Arcati"), "Habeas Corpus" and'David Hare (I)' 's "Stuff Happens (as "First Lady Laura Bush"opposite 'Keith Carradine' 's bemused "President Bush"). Jane'slatest venture on Broadway has been as "Mrs. Brill" in the musical,"Mary Poppins". .
