Susan Lucci

Susan Victoria Lucci (born December 23, 1946) is an American actress, best known for portraying Erica Kane on the daytime drama All My Children. The character is considered an icon, and Lucci has been called "Daytime's Leading Lady" by TV Guide, with New York Times and Los Angeles Times citing her as the highest-paid actor in daytime television. Midway into her career, her salary had been reported as over $1 million a year. Susan Lucci was born in Scarsdale, New York, to parents Jeanette and Victor Lucci. Her father is Italian, and her mother is Swedish. She attended Garden City High School in Garden City, New York, graduating in 1964. She then attended Marymount College at Fordham University and graduated with a BA degree in drama in 1968. Lucci is best known for playing Erica Kane on the ABC television soap opera All My Children, on which she has appeared since the show's inception on January 5, 1970. She is the only original cast member remaining on the series. Lucci was nominated for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series Emmy for her work on All My Children almost every year since 1978. When Lucci did not win the award after several consecutive nominations, her image in the media began to be lampooned, as she became notoriously synonymous with never winning an Emmy.
