Anne Ramsay

Anne Ramsay stars as Jamie's sister Lisa Stemple on Mad About You, which airs five nights a week. Check your local listings for additional information.

Born and raised in Southern California, Ramsay was inspired by Barbra Streisand's performance in the feature film Funny Girl, which led her to study theater at UCLA. After graduating with a B.A. degree, she landed her first professional role in an industrial film. However, it was her work in The Continuum, an acting group of fellow UCLA alumni, which provided her first real break. Their 1987 production of Waiting, which she co-wrote, won the group acclaim and Ramsay an agent. Anne recently appeared on an episode of Chicago Hope.

Ramsay went on to guest star in numerous TV shows, such as the NBC drama A Year in the Life, Booker, Wolf, Hunter, Duet and Star Trek: The Next Generation, among others, including a regular stint on the series Doctor, Doctor, playing a nutty psychiatrist. Most recently, Ramsay appeared in Everything to Gain, a motion-picture-for-television for CBS.

Ramsay's feature credits include Class Action with Gene Hackman, Critters 4, The Taste of Hemlock, Unfinished Business and the highly successful A League of Their Own, in which she played the first baseman. "I was a tomboy as a kid, and that made me perfect for the role," says Ramsay, who broke her nose during the rough-and-tumble filming.

Though her alter ego of Lisa is still developing, Ramsay sizes her up this way: "I love playing characters who seem to be on top of it, but aren't. She's very artsy, dresses in funky clothes and thinks she's independent -- but really she is very dependent, especially on her sister."

In her spare time, Ramsay enjoys athletics playing beach volleyball.
