From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Annie Golden (born October 19, 1951) is an American actress and singer.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Golden began her career as the lead singer of The Shirts (which headlined CBGB's in the late
seventies).[1] During the early 1990s she performed as part of the duo Golden Carillo with Frank Carillo. They released three
albums, [2] Fire in Newtown, Toxic Emotion, and Back for More. She then returned to The Shirts. Since then she has
performed solo and with a band. She performs a revue of songs from her stage career along with originals called Annie
Golden's Velvet Prison.

While with The Shirts she was discovered by Miloš Forman who gave her a part in Hair.[1] She has had featured roles on
Cheers and Miami Vice.
On Broadway, she has appeared in the 1977 revival of Hair, Leader of the Pack, Ah, Wilderness!, On the Town, and The Full
Monty . She had the title role in the workshop of the short lived adaptation of Stephen King's novel, Carrie. She also played
the role of Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme in Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman's musical Assassins Off-Broadway in 1990-
1991. [3] In 2003 she joined other original Off-Broadway cast members in a Reprise! (Los Angeles) concert production of
Assassins.[4] In 2007, she was stand-by for the two comic villain roles in the musical Xanadu on Broadway. [5] Golden has
the distinct honor of having appeared in three separate versions of Hair: a Broadway revival in 1977, the motion picture in
1979 and a special benefit performance concert in 2004.
Golden was the voice of Marina in the Don Bluth film The Pebble and the Penguin. In recent years, she has been seen in
commercials for Coinstar, in which she portrays The Tooth Fairy. Annie's trade mark is her over bite.
She appeared in the movie musical Temptation with actors Adam Pascal, Tony Award Winners Alice Ripley and Anika Noni
Rose, and film actress Zoe Saldana[6] and in 2009 had a small role in I Love You Phillip Morris, with actors Ewan McGregor
and Jim Carrey, playing a simple woman requiring legal assistance.

In 2011, Golden starred with Peter Scolari in the world premiere of The Nutcracker and I[7] . Comically playing the Sugar
Rush Fairy (and three other roles) in this musical comedy featuring the music of Tchaikovsky and lyrics by Gerard
Alessandrini, she and Scolari were compared in one review to the team of Imogene Coca and Sid Caesar[8] .
