Lauren Lane (C.C. Babcock)
Before Fran Fine and Maxwell Sheffield were married, competing for his affections was his business partner, Chastity Claire “C.C.” Babcock, played by Lauren Lane. She was previously best known for inheriting the female lead role on the cop show Hunter in its final season, and for a recurring spot on legal drama L.A. Law, before she was cast as the de facto “villain” of The Nanny.
Outside of appearances on a Lifetime network Nanny cast reunion or Fran Drescher’s short-lived talk show, the now 60-year-old has only acquired three screen credits following the hit sitcom, two of which are short films made 18 years apart, as she has mostly kept busy on the stage. Lane’s active on social media to stay connected with fans and the Nanny cast, such as with the virtual table read of the pilot they performed April 2020.
