Biography

Leland Palmer (born June 16, 1945, in Port Washington, New York, United States) is an American actress, dancer, and singer who has appeared on stage, in motion pictures, and on television. She appeared on Broadway in Bajour, A Joyful Noise, Hello, Dolly!, Applause, and Pippin.

Palmer has received two Tony Award nominations: in 1967 for featured actress in a musical (“Miss Jimmie” in A Joyful Noise), and in 1973 for actress in a musical (Fastrada in Pippin). Her U.S. television appearances include guest roles on Love, American Style; Laverne & Shirley; and Rhoda. She was also a regular on the Carol Burnett summer replacement variety series Dinah and her New Best Friends on CBS in 1976. To movie audiences, Palmer is best known for Bob Fosse’s All That Jazz (1979), in which she played Audrey Paris, a central character modeled clearly on Fosse’s wife, the Broadway star Gwen Verdon.

Palmer is known now as Linda Posner. Although she no longer performs, she continues to work with community theatres in California. She most recently served as choreographer of 42nd Street Moon-San Francisco’s production of Irma La Douce.

In 1990, the U.S. television series Twin Peaks featured a fictional, male character named “Leland Palmer” who was played by Ray Wise.
