Looks like we don't have Carole Bishop salary information. Sorry!

1She lives with her husband and their beloved pets in South Orange, New Jersey. [October 2006]
2Trained in ballet, she attended the American Ballet Theatre and the San Jose Ballet schools.
3At age 18 she made it to New York and landed her first job dancing in a year-round ballet company at Radio City Music Hall.
4Made her Broadway debut in the musical "Golden Rainbow" in 1967, but scored big as the sexy, streetwise Sheila in the Broadway production of "A Chorus Line" with her contribution in the song "At the Ballet". The performance earned her Tony and Drama Desk awards in 1976.
5Made a strong film debut in mid-career as one of Jill Clayburgh's close friends in Paul Mazursky's well-received drama An Unmarried Woman (1978).
6Was originally cast in a minor part in the film Dirty Dancing (1987), but was then called upon to play a larger role when Lynn Lipton, the actress first cast as Baby's mother, became ill during the first week of shooting.
7Practices Pilates and aerobics and enjoys gardening and hiking.
8First worked with her "Chorus Line" director/choreographer Michael Bennett while appearing on Broadway in "Promises, Promises" in 1968.
9Was the first of the original cast members to leave "A Chorus Line".
10Won Broadway's 1976 Tony as Best Supporting or Featured Actress (Musical) for her performance as Sheila in the original production of "A Chorus Line."
11Her husband, Lee Leonard, is host of 'Jersey Talkin' on Channel 12, New Jersey. He was also the host of "Midday Live" a long-running local talk show on New York's WNYW-TV. Leonard was also an anchor at ESPN.
12She is an animal enthusiast.

1I would never be Emily's friend in real life. She's so opinionated and status quo - definitely not my kind of woman.
2I have played a couple of nice moms in my career [think Jennifer Grey's mom in the classic film Dirty Dancing] but, in my opinion, playing nice is a complete bore! The nastier they are the more fun they are [as in Howard Stern's mom in Private Parts, perhaps?].
3My friends and neighbors get such a kick out of watching me on television and in movies. They see me do and say things that I would never even think of doing in my real life. They just think it is hysterical, especially when I play mean.
4My relationship with Lauren is nothing like the roles we play on the show. I am just crazy about my girls. Practically from the moment [Lauren and I] met, we had an instant connect. We never even had to discuss what we wanted to do with our roles. It's as if we have this emotional shorthand.

Looks like we don't have Carole Bishop trademarks information. Sorry!
