If you have ever seen the US television series Frasier, which aired between 1993 and 2004, you are familiar with the celebrated actress Peri Gilpin, who played the role of Roz Doyle – the series’ resident “maneater” who had no scruples about her promiscuous nature. Peri and other cast members of the show have reinvented her appearance over the years. Peri can be seen in many films and television shows today and has lent her voice to several animated films as a voiceover artist.
Who Is Peri Gilpin?
The beautiful American actress was born as Peri Kay Oldham on May 27, 1961, as mother Sandra Jo Hauck and father James Franklin Oldham, who used the stage name Jim O’Brien as the Philadelphia weatherman and radio disc jockey. Peri has two sisters, Patti Jo Oldham and April Gilpin, and a brother Marc Gilpin, who all grew up in Dallas. The actress, whose birth sign is twins, is an American national and has a mixed ethnic background of German, English, Irish and Croatian. When Peri was just eight years old, her parents’ marriage broke up, and later, in 1969, her mother remarried Allen W.

Peri’s biological father died in a skydiving accident on September 25, 1983, and her mother also died of a leiomyosarcoma.

The renowned actress received her early education at Skyline High School in Dallas, Texas. Her family supported and promoted her acting skills, and finally, she attended the Dallas Theater Center, after which she continued her acting career and honed her skills at the University of Texas at Austin and also at the British-American Academy in London.

Peri Gilpin’s Husband and Kids
The marriage story of Peri is one of the less complicated ones in Hollywood. On July 31, 1999, the renowned actress married her reality painter friend Christian Vincent. Her wedding, which took place at Kelsey Grammer’s home, was well attended by family and friends. The couple wanted children immediately after the marriage, but it did not work out as planned, so they resorted to in vitro treatments, which failed after several attempts. So the couple had no choice but to choose surrogacy as their last resort in order to realize their dream of having children. Finally, on May 7, 2004, the twin girls Ava and Stella arrived at a Nevada hospital through a surrogate mother, and the couple was overwhelmed with joy. In their opinion, there is no experience comparable to holding their own children in their hands, they described it as the best in the world.

They still live happily together with their daughters in their home in Los Angeles.
