Rhea Perlman was born on March 21, 1948.
As of July 07, 2020, she is 72 years old.
Perlman was born in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York.
Her father, Philip, was a Polish immigrant who worked making doll parts. Her mother, Adele, was a bookkeeper.
Perlman rose to fame on Cheers from 1982-93 as fiery barmaid Carla Tortelli, a role she also brought to spin-off Frasier.
Before all that, Perlman perfomed in off-Broadway shows and eventually landed a part as Louie De Palma’s girlfriend, Zena, on Taxi.
Louie, of course, was played by Danny Devito … who was Perlman’s real-life love interest. The couple married on January 28, 1982, and have three children together.
