Carol Kane stars in "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" on Netflix.

Carol Kane is critically acclaimed actress of the stage and screen. She is perhaps best known for her portrayal of Simka Dahblitz-Gravas, wife of Latka Gravas (Andy Kaufman), on the television comedy series "Taxi" and also for her role as Allison Portchnik in Woody Allen's "Annie Hall." Kane earned two Emmy Awards for her work in the series and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in the film "Hester Street." She also appeared in "Carnal Knowledge," "Dog Day Afternoon," "The Princess Bride," "Joe Versus the Volcano," "The Bounty Hunter," "Four Christmases," "Addams Family Values" and "Scrooged," in which Variety called her "unquestionably the pic's comic highlight."

On television, Kane was a series regular on both NBC's "All Is Forgiven" and "American Dreamer," played a supporting role on the sitcom "Pearl," which starred Rhea Perlman, and guest-starred in "Seinfeld." Kane also appeared in "The Year Without a Santa Claus" and was seen in episodes of "Two and a Half Men," "Girls," "Ugly Betty," "Monk," "Hope & Faith" and "Gotham," to name a few.

Kane has appeared multiple times off-Broadway, and on Broadway in "Ring Around the Bathtub," "The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigoids," "Sly Fox" and more recently as Betty Chumley in a revival of the play "Harvey," alongside Jim Parsons. Kane is particularly known for her portrayal of the evil headmistress Madame Morrible in the Broadway musical "Wicked," whom she played in various productions from 2005 to 2009. Kane made her "Wicked" debut on the 1st National Tour and the first Broadway production, as well as productions in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Kane further made her West End debut in a major revival of Lillian Helman's drama "The Children's Hour" at London's Comedy Theatre, alongside Keira Knightley, Elizabeth Moss and Ellen Burstyn.
