I may be wrong, but...

Yes, Ellen Foley, who released four albums, appeared in the movie Hair, and a few other movies in small roles, and was on Night Court for one season. Should've been bigger than she was. Game is yours, Prof.

All right, Prof. P.!

Previous IQs:

An actress, did you play a sitcom character named Corky? - Yes, Faith Ford, on Murphy Brown
Were you that character's husband? - I forget his first name, but his last name was Forrest, so for awhile she was Corky Sherwood-Forrest
Did you create Downton Abbey? - Julian Fellowes
