          Kathy Bates and her two older sisters were raised in Tennesse by their father, Langdon Doyle Bates, a mechanical engineer, and their mother Bertye Kathleen, both deceased. Kathy was educated at Southern Methodist University in Dallas in 1969, where she majored in theater.
          During the 1970s, Kathy concentrated on New York stage work, debuting with an off-Broadway production of Vanities. From there she earned her first Tony nomination for portraying the suicidal daughter in 'night, Mother, and won an Obie for her role of the weary waitress in Frankie and Johnny. During the 80's and the early part of the 90's, Kathy starred and co-starred in a number of plays, television series and feature films such as Robert Altman's '82 film version of Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean, The Morning After, and Arthur 2. But the role that garnished her the most attention was her scary portrayal of a deranged literary admirer in Rob Reiner's film Misery, leading her to the coveted Best Actress Oscar.
