Betty Lynn Buckley (born July 3, 1947) is a Tony Award-winning American theater, film, and television actress and singer.
Buckley made her Broadway debut in 1969 and has been called “The Voice of Broadway” by New York Magazine. Her rendition of “Memory” in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats established her reputation. Buckley has recorded 13 solo albums and now tours extensively across the U.S. each year. She is also a composer, her first recording contains mostly songs she wrote. She is also featured on many Broadway compilation recordings.
She is perhaps best known for the 1977-81 TV dramedy Eight is Enough. She joined the show in its second season after the original star, Diana Hyland, died after the first four episodes of season 1. Hyland’s character (Joan Bradford) died, and Buckley was cast as Sandra Sue Abbott (nicknamed Abby), who went on to become stepmother to the eight children to which the series’ title refers.
