Birth Place: Evanston, Illinois

Alicia "Lecy" Goranson was born on June 22, 1974, in Evanston, IL. She made her career debut as an actor with a starring role on the sitcom "Roseanne" (ABC 1988-1997; 2018), on which she played the central family's eldest daughter Becky. Famously, Goranson left the series in 1992, at which time she enrolled in Vassar College and was replaced as Becky by actor Sarah Chalke. Goranson did return to "Roseanne" three years later, though only by way of sporadic appearances as Becky during the series' eighth season. Around the same time, Goranson made her feature film debut with a small role in the drama "How to Make an American Quilt" (1995), and followed this up with a more sizable part in the drama film "Boys Don't Cry" (1999). However, Goranson wouldn't begin acting consistently until a few years later, at which point she began collecting guest appearances on popular television series like "Sex and the City" (HBO), "Law & Order: SVU" (NBC 1999-), "Fringe" (Fox 2008-2013), and "Damages" (FX/Audience Network 2007-2012). When it was announced that "Roseanne" would be revived on network television 20 years after its original cancelation, Goranson was confirmed to return with a regular role as Becky. (Chalke was recast in a different role in the revived series.)
