Biography[edit]

Bosson was born in Charleroi, Pennsylvania to a tennis coach father.[1] During her childhood, she lived in an American Craftsman Style house on Price Avenue in the borough of North Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania. The house still stands today, and Bosson has often visited the house when traveling through the area. Her first feature film was the 1968 movie, Bullitt. She is well known for her roles in the 1980s NBC television series Hill Street Blues as the vulnerable "Fay Furillo" during the series' first six seasons. Later, she went on to play the tough prosecutor "Miriam Grasso" on Murder One from 1995 to 1997, which earned her an Emmy nomination.

Bosson starred in the 1970s series Richie Brockelman, Private Eye as Sharon. Other roles include the short-lived series Hooperman and Cop Rock. Some of Bosson's film appearances include her well-known role as Alex Rogan's mom in the 1984 hit science fiction film The Last Starfighter.

Bosson has made guest appearances on many shows, ranging from Mannix, Crazy Like a Fox, L.A. Law, Civil Wars, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (in the season 2 episode "Rivals" as Roana) and Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.

From 1970 until their divorce in 1997, Bosson was married to writer-producer Steven Bochco, who created several of the series she starred in, including Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law, Murder One, and Cop Rock; they have two children.
