An actress who won four Emmys during a long run on one of television’s most popular shows has lost her Palm Springs home in a foreclosure sale, USA Today reports.
Allison Janney, a familiar television actress known for NBC’s "The West Wing" and other shows, co-owned the house, which was once owned by movie star William Holden. The house, which Janney and co-owner Gregg Rapp, a restaurant consultant, purchased in 2006 for $3.9 million, was sold for $2.2 million.
The place, a steel-and-glass design by architect Hugh Kaptur, was in need of extensive renovation. The house sits on nearly four acres, and includes a spacious master suite with a two-way fireplace, 36-foot-long walk-in closet and dressing room, a large foyer leading to a living and dining room area and long expanses of floor-to-ceiling windows and sliders.
Janney received six Emmy nominations from 2000-2006 for playing C.J. Cregg on “West Wing,” winning four trophies — the first two as a supporting actress before moving up to lead actress for her final four nominations and two wins. She is also known for her film appearances, including “Juno” and “The Help.”
