Kathy Bates - Kathy Bates Considers Retirement

Veteran actress Kathy Bates is eyeing retirement once her hit U.S. TV drama Harry's Law ends.
The Oscar winner has enjoyed a long film career with roles in Misery, Titanic and About Schmidt and she has also scooped up nine Emmy Award nominations.
And the 68 year old confesses it's time to think about calling it quits.
She tells Star magazine, "I'm thinking about stopping when Harry's Law finishes. I would like to move on to other things in the time I have left. Writing, painting, maybe travelling and finally learning how to speak French while I've still got my wits about me.
"I've had some wonderful opportunities. I'm really proud of what I've done."

Yes I can see that she would want to persue her many interests and talents and since she is only 63 (not 68) she has more years to do so. I will miss seeing her so I guess we will all have to make sure Harrys Law stays on for a good many years.
