TRIVIA: Attended The University of Texas at Austin (graduated 

Attended high school in Dallas with Jayne Mansfield... they
were childhood friends Jayne Mansfield.

1958 NYC stage debut, "The Crucible" 

1965 Film debut, "Andy" 

1970 Played Lahoma Lucas on NBC daytime drama "Somerset" 

Played Bootsie Westchester on CBS sitcom "Filthy Rich" 

Won Broadway's 1978 Tony Award as Best Actress for "Chapter Two."

Won a Drama Desk Award for her role in "A Lie of the Mind" (1986).

Appeared on "The Edge of Night" (CBS) and the NBC dramas 
"Another World" and its spin-off "Somerset".

She was Rip Torn's first wife, before he married 
Geraldine Page. They have a daughter, actress Danae Torn. 

Over fifteen years after their divorce she appeared with ex-
husband Rip Torn in the film Birch Interval (1976). By this 
time he was married to actress Geraldine Page.

Wedgeworth joined the seasoned cast of "Three's Company" in 
1979 as bosomy neighbor/divorcée Lana Shields who had strict 
and assertive designs on 'John Ritter's Jack Tripper character. 
It was a tawdry, one-note character that really didn't fit in 
with the harmless leering and silly, physical slapstick of the 
show. She was promptly written out of the series in mid-season 
with no explanation given in the story for Lana's disappearance. 
Later Wedgeworth revealed that she wasn't "fired" but asked to 
be let go. After shooting a couple of episodes of the show, 
Wedgeworth said, some of the cast members were complaining about 
the size of her part and the character dwindled down to practically 
"nothing". Wedgeworth asked the producers to write the part of Lana 
back to the way it was intended or release her.

WHERE IS SHE NOW: Ann has kept busy in both films and TV 
throughout her career.

Most recently, Ann was seen in 'The Hawk Is Dying' with 
Paul Giamatti that was shown at the Sundance Film Festival
in 2006.

She is now living in Austin, TX just waiting for her next role.
