Gilbert reprised her role as Darlene in the series revival in 2018, which premiered to record-breaking numbers, and she continues in her role as both Darlene and executive producer on ABC's hit comedy "The Conners."

Gilbert was also the creator, executive producer and co-host of CBS' award-winning talk show, "The Talk," which has won Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment and Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Hosts. She recently made a guest-star appearance on the YouTube Premium series "Weird City." The series, co-created by Academy® and Emmy Award-winning writer Jordan Peele and Emmy Award-winning writer Charlie Sanders, centers around life in the not-too-distant future city of Weird.

She also appeared in "Desert Blue," opposite Kate Hudson; Fox's "Light it Up," opposite Forest Whitaker; a memorable cameo role as a star-struck publicist's assistant in the Warner Bros. comedy "The Big Tease"; and Buena Vista's "High Fidelity," opposite John Cusack.

A magna cum laude graduate of Yale University with a degree in art, Gilbert made her directorial debut with the critically acclaimed short film "Persona Non Grata." The film was executive produced by The Shooting Gallery and selected for the 1998 Sundance Film Festival.

An accomplished stage actress, Gilbert's theater credits include the off-Broadway play "Exonerated," opposite Richard Dreyfuss and Jill Clayburgh; an appearance in the world premiere of Gary Stewart's play "Downwinder Dance"; and a starring role in the Williamstown Theater Festival production of "The Hot L Baltimore."

I have always enjoyed you as an actress. Lecy Goranson always states that you and her are very close friends off the set. During the 20+ years Roseanne wasn't on the air, did you keep up the friendship with her? I know that you did a short TV series in NY around 2001 or so. She was living in NY at the time - I wonder whether the 2 of you met up during that time.
