Who Is ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ Patricia Heaton, How Old Is She?

Born Patricia Helen Heaton on March 4, 1958, in Bay Village, Ohio, the actress is the fourth of the five children born to Chuck Heaton who worked as a sportswriter for Cleveland’s major daily newspaper The Plain Dealer, and Patricia Heaton. She has three sisters named Sharon, Alice, and Frances, and one brother named Michael, who serves as The Plain Dealer’s “Minister of Culture” columnist as well as a writer for the Friday Magazine of the same newspaper. At the age of 12, Patricia and her siblings, who were raised in the Catholic faith, became motherless following the death of their mother due to aneurysm.

A former student of the Ohio State University, Patricia was a member of Delta Gamma Sorority as an undergraduate and finished from the university with a degree in drama. Still wanting to hone her acting skill, she moved to New York City in 1980 to study drama under William Esper and eventually made her Broadway debut in 1987. Subsequently, she formed an off-Broadway acting troupe named ‘Stage Three’ alongside some of her fellow students. Unknown to her, it was a platform that would pave way for her to get into Hollywood.

Patricia Heaton and her troupe took one of their performances to Los Angeles and while doing her thing, she drew the attention of the casting director for Thirtysomething, who ultimately cast her in a role which saw her appearing in six episodes as Dr. Silverman from 1989 to 1991. Meanwhile, before this time, she had already made her television debut in an episode of Alien Nation in the same year.

After Thirtysomething, the actress guest-starred in other television series such as Matlock, DEA, Party of Five, and The King of Queens. She later got her first major career breakthrough with the role of Jill Kurland on the ABC sitcom, Room for Two, where she appeared in 26 episodes. After this came regular roles in other sitcoms such as Someone Like Me and Women of the House. 

Years after her entry into Hollywood, Patricia Heaton’s big break came in 1996 with the female leading role of Debra Barone in Everybody Loves Raymond. She performed so well on the show that she won two Primetime Emmy Awards. Additionally, the bundle of talent earned eleven Screen Actors Guild Award nominations, winning one in 2013.
