Dorothy Lyman is most known for her work as Opal Sue Gardner on All My Children, and as Naomi Harper on the sitcom Mama’s Family.

Writing plays has always been an interest of Lyman’s since the mid-1990s, but success got in the way when The Nanny came knocking. Lyman went behind the camera, producing and directing a total of 75 episodes of The Nanny (all episodes of the third and fourth seasons, and all but four episodes of the fifth), even making a special guest appearance on the Fran Drescher sitcom.
