Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

The daughter of ventriloquist/comedian Edgar Bergen first appeared on-screen at the age of 11, telling Groucho Marx on an episode of "You Bet Your Life" that she wanted to be a dress designer when she grew up. When she began acting some years later, it looked as though she should have. Critics tore her apart for her blond, patrician good looks and stiff acting, and her choice of film projects-including The Group (1966), Getting Straight (1970), and The Hunting Party (1971), among othersdidn't exactly inspire moviegoers either. Bergen subsequently turned in fine portrayals in T. R. Baskin and Carnal Knowledge (both 1971), suggesting that she had greater potential than previously suspected, but she seemed more interested in photojournalism (for which she showed surprising aptitude) and didn't gain widespread acceptance as a screen actress until winning an Oscar nomination for her turn as Burt Reynolds' ex-wife in Starting Over (1979). She has since gone on to greater popularity as the star of the criti cally acclaimed "Murphy Brown" TV show, for which she has received four Emmy Awards. Bergen is married to director Louis Malle. Her mother, Frances Bergen, has resumed an acting career in recent years, appearing in such films as Eating (1990) and Made in America (1993). Candice published an autobiography, "Knock Wood," in 1984.
