Birthday wishes to daytime legend Susan Lucci (Erica, ALL MY CHILDREN), who turns 69 today!
Lucci has appeared in numerous television shows and movies, but is best known for the iconic role of Erica Kane on AMC. She first appeared in Pine Valley in 1970, and played the legendary diva for over four decades, right up until the soap’s cancellation in 2011.
Most famously, the actress was known for her Daytime Emmy losing streak. Amassing a total of 21 nominations for Outstanding Lead Actress over her soap career, Lucci earned 18 nods before finally taking home the trophy. She had a good sense of humor about it, though, poking fun at her streak right up until it ended in 1999.
Lucci also finished sixth in the seventh season of DANCING WITH THE STARS, and can currently be seen starring as Genevieve Delatour on Lifetime’s DEVIOUS MAIDS.
Happy Birthday to a true legend!
