Stockard Channing celebrated her 80th birthday on February 13, 2024, marking a remarkable journey from her early days with the Theatre Company of Boston to her success on Broadway and in Hollywood.

Her early work, including a role in “The Girl Most Likely To…” penned by Joan Rivers, highlighted her dynamic range and ability to captivate audiences.

Channing’s iconic performance as Betty Rizzo in “Grease” in 1978, alongside stars like John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, catapulted her to fame, earning her a People’s Choice Award.

Her role in “Six Degrees of Separation” brought her critical acclaim, with nominations for an Oscar and a Golden Globe.
