Fran Drescher        

National President of the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) & Actress, Cancer Survivor and Outspoken Healthcare Advocate

After years of small roles in film and television, the comic actress Fran Drescher finally gained fame as a "'Mary Poppins' from Queens" in what has become her signature role, Fran Fine in "The Nanny." With then-husband Peter Marc Jacobson, Drescher co-created and executive produced the sitcom - a humorous study of contrasts arising from the juxtaposition of a middle-class Jewish nanny in the refined world of a British-born, upper-class theater producer. Her performance in "The Nanny" earned her two Emmy nominations as Best Actress in a Comedy Series. She is currently serving as the national president of the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA)

Following their 1999 divorce, Drescher and Jacobson reunited to develop a new sitcom, "Living with Fran," followed by "Happily Divorced," which premiered in 2011. Inspired by their real-life relationship, the show features Fran with her newly outed gay ex-husband still living with her for economic reasons.

In 2000, Drescher was diagnosed with uterine cancer but has since been given a clean bill of health. She wrote a book about this experience, "Cancer Schmancer," in which she frankly describes the disease and her journey back to health. She has also penned her memoir, "Enter Whining."

A brazenly sexy, stylish, and comic performer with a distinctive New York accent, Drescher intimately connects with her audiences in her keynotes, addressing anything from her various roles on screen and stage to her fight against cancer and sexual assault awareness.
