Florence Stanley as Bernice Fish on Barney Miller

Florence Stanley (1924 - 2003) was a raspy-voiced character actress who was heard as Ethyl Phillips on Dinosaurs. Stanley began her career in early television dramas in the 1950s, including a brief stint on Dark Shadows, but first came to prominence as the insecure Bernice Fish on Barney Miller and the spin-off series Fish.

Stanley soon specialized in playing sharp-tongued older women on sitcoms, such as Judge Wilbur on My Two Dads and Dr. Raskin on Nurses, plus guest appearances on Mad About You, Dharma & Greg, and Malcolm in the Middle. Film credits included Bulworth, Up the Down Staircase, Down With Love, Trapped in Paradise, and Disney's animated feature Atlantis: The Lost Empire. On stage, she replaced Bea Arthur as Yente in the original Broadway run of Fiddler on the Roof.
