From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nancy Dolman (born 1952) is a Canadian comic actress originally from Toronto. She is most notable for her recurring role as Annie Selig Tate on the ABC cult sitcom "Soap", "Second City Television" and "Custard Pie". She also appeared in her husband Martin Short's critically acclaimed 1985 cable television special Martin Short: Concert for the North Americas.

Dolman performed in the Canadian Rock Theatre production of Jesus Christ Superstar in the early 1970s, which travelled to Las Vegas and Los Angeles, and recorded an album with the group at MGM while they were in L.A. [1] [2]

This production also starred Victor Garber, Gilda Radner, Eugene Levy, Dave Thomas and Andrea Martin, with Paul Shaffer as musical director. Dolman was Gilda Radner's understudy. Short dated Radner first, then began dating Dolman in 1974. Dolman holds a Bachelor's degree in philosophy from The University of Western Ontario. [3]

She retired from show business in 1985 to be a homemaker and full-time mother to her children. The family make their home in Pacific Palisades, California. Dolman and Short enjoy a vacation home in the affluent Ontario area of Muskoka Lake, [4] as do friends Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, and Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw.
