Sharon Gless, age 67, is the quintessential showbiz survivor. After her iconic Emmy-winning role as Det Sgt Christine Cagney on the CBS cop drama Cagney & Lacey in the 1980s, she became a series regular decades later playing Moms on Showtime's Queer As Folk and then on the USA Network hit Burn Notice. Along the way, she’s accrued 10 Emmy nominations (winning two for Cagney in 1986 and 1987). For her most recent nod, she competes with Rose Byrne (Damages), Christine Baranski and Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife), and Christina Hendricks and Elizabeth Moss (Mad Men). Gless spoke with Ray Richmond for Deadline Hollywood about series work.
