    Happily, we still have the lovely Chama. She is probably the smartest dog I have ever known and the friendliest.

    Birthday: November 6, 1946 Nationality: American Famous: Actresses American Women Also Known As: Sally Margaret Field Sun Sign: Scorpio Age: 72 Years, 72 Year Old Females Born in: Pasadena Famous as: American actress Spouse/Ex-: Alan Greisman (m. 1984–1993)Steven Craig father: Richard Dryden Field mother: Margaret Field children: Eli Craig, Peter Craig, Samuel Greisman Personality: ESFJ City, States, Provinces & Districts: California Net worth: $55 million education: Portola Middle School, Birmingham High School Sally Field is an actress who is most remembered for her dramatic roles in both films and television. In her childhood and teenage years, she had to endure psychological and verbal abuse from her stepfather. She found her relief by getting involved in extracurricular activities at school, including drama. Aged 21, she was offered a leading role in the TV series ‘The Flying Nun’, a sitcom with a slightly far-fetched concept. To anyone her age, starring in a TV show would have been enough, but not for Field, who craved for roles with substance, displaying a maturity that belied her age. Twice in her career, Field made conscious efforts to break free of her typecast roles and succeeded in bagging exactly the kind of roles that she sought. Her career has been adorned with all kinds of awards and honours. In an industry where winning one ‘Oscar Award’ is considered the pinnacle of one’s career, she won two of them, that too in the highly competitive category of ‘Best Actress in a Leading Role’. In television too, she has made her mark with award-winning performances in shows like ‘ER’ and ‘Brothers & Sisters’. Till today, Field continues to captivate audiences, and mesmerize everyone with her gripping performances. Sally Field had a difficult relationship with her stepfather, especially during her teenage years. However, he encouraged her to pursue her acting interests, and even advised her to accept the lead in ‘The Flying Nun’. In 1968, while working in ‘The Flying Nun’, she married her boyfriend from high school Steven Craig, and became pregnant with his child. Her son Peter was born the next year. Four years later, her second son Elijah was born. She studied at the famous ‘Actors Studio’, an acting workshop founded by Lee Strasberg. The course helped her attain a more serious reputation, and hence helped her get better roles. In 1975, she divorced her first husband Steven Craig. The same year, she also hired a new agent. In the late 1970s, Field began a romantic relationship with actor Bert Reynolds, and the couple starred together in many successful comedies. In 1984, she married producer Alan Greisman and in the course of the nine-year marriage, which ended in divorce, she gave birth to her third son Samuel. She also has three grandchildren. In 2005, she came to know that she was suffering with ‘Osteoporosis’, a bone-weakening condition. Post the revelation, she has taken up efforts to increase awareness about the condition, and is also the spokesperson for the medicine ‘Boniva’. Trivia This famous American actress was paired romantically opposite actor Tom Hanks in the movie ‘Punchline’. Six years later, in ‘Forrest Gump’, the actress played Hanks’ mother. During the shooting of the scene where she is hauled to a car from her award-winning film ‘Norma Rae’, this actress broke a rib of one the actors playing a police officer by kicking him too hard.

    We had a tour guide who was determined that we see this view, which was very difficult to get to. You can see the fence around some construction occurring beneath the arch. I have always been so glad that she was very persistent!
