Alley’s role in the popular comedy series “Cheers” (1987-1993) earned her a Golden Globe and an Emmy trophy, among other awards. The twice-divorced actress has had other television appearances in series such as Torches in the Storm and in films such as Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) and Love Without Health Insurance (2015). In the series “Fat Actress” (2005), Alley made fun of Hollywood’s obsession with being thin. Her TV reality show Big Life (2010) was all about her own struggle with the pounds.
