Wiki

JoBeth Williams (born December 6, 1948) is an American television and film actress and director, and current President of the Screen Actors Guild Foundation.

Williams was born as Margaret JoBeth Williams in Houston, Texas, the daughter of Frances Faye (née Adams), a dietitian, and Fredric Roger Williams, an opera singer and manager of a wire and cable company. Williams grew up in the South Park neighborhood, and she attended Jones High School.

She attended Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island intending to become a child psychologist. Instead, she turned to theater, training with Jim Barnhill and John Emigh as well as at the Trinity Repertory Company, taking voice lessons to neutralize her Texan accent. Then she moved to New York City and began to appear in television series in the mid-1970s.
