Suzanne Cryer knew early that acting was her destiny. In the fourth grade she performed in community theatre, and in her late teens performed regularly on the dinner theatre circuit. Her love of theatre led her to the prestigious Yale school of drama, where she received her masters degree.
In 1997, her studies and determination paid off when she won the leading role on Broadway in Neil Simon's Proposals, one of his only female-driven plays. Cryer most recently directed an updated version of Macbeth.
Her television appearances include a classic guest-starring role as the Yada Yada girl on Seinfeld. Her first television role was opposite Chris Noth in Law & Order. One particularly notable television guest appearance was on Cosby. Cryer had a memorable experience when she and Bill Cosby improvised an entire scene -- which was included intact in the final cut.
An admitted academic at heart, Cryer loves to write poetry. She's also fond of cooking, horseback riding, swimming and tennis.
