In an era when it was still potentially a fatal career move to be openly queer in Hollywood, actor and director Amanda Bearse blew a lot of people away when she came out as a lesbian in 1993, at the height of success in her role as Marcy D'Arcy on the hit television series "Married ... With Children." She also directed more than 30 episodes of the show, and has directed episodes of a number of other series as well. We spoke with her on set at "Married," and got to watch her at work in the control room too.
