Rowlands’ career encompasses six decades of work in film, television, and theater. She is best known for her collaborations with her husband John Cassavetes, who directed her in ten films, including two Oscar-nominated performances in A Woman Under the Influence (1975) and Gloria (1981). Rowlands also won four Emmys for The Betty Ford Story (1987), Face of a Stranger (1991), Hysterical Blindness (2003), and The Incredible Mrs. Ritchie (2004).
