Recently, Ms. Lucci celebrated her 30th anniversary starring as the dazzling femme fatale on the ABC Television Network's Emmy Award-winning All My Children. During those more than two decades, she has seen Erica grow from troubled teen to international beauty, progressing over the years from high-fashion model to philanthropist to magazine publisher. She's had nine marriages to six different men - Erica Kane Martin Brent Cudahy Chandler Montgomery Montgomery Chandler Marick Marick. She's been kidnapped, survived a plane crash, stared down a grizzly bear, posed as a nun, driven a race car and attempted a daring helicopter rescue of one of her lovers from prison. But she always rises, phoenix-like, from her own ashes.
With the 1999 Emmy Award for Outstanding Actress in addition to countless other awards such as a 1992 People's Choice Award, the 1993 Soap Opera Digest Award for Outstanding Lead Actress, the 1994 Crystal Apple Award, the 1985 People magazine poll as Best Soap Actress, the 1988 Soap Opera Digest Editor's Award for Outstanding Contribution to Daytime Television, the 1989 Canadian TV Guide People's Choice Award for Best Soap Actress, the Italian-American Welfare League's Woman of the Year, as well as 19 Emmy nominations for Outstanding Actress it is understandable that Susan Lucci as Erica Kane is as popular as the show itself. Soap Opera Digest has chosen Susan Lucci as the most beautiful woman on television many times and selected her as Woman of the Year in August of 1999. Further adding to this impressive resume, Ms. Lucci was one of a select group of individuals (including General Norman Schwarzkopf) to be honored with a prestigious American Academy of Achievement Award in June of 1991. She is also listed in the Who's Who in America directory.
If there's one thing Susan and Erica have in common, it's their dedication to pursuing a career. In addition to her leading role on All My Children, in the 1997-98 season, Susan starred in the movie for television, Blood on Her Hands, as Isabelle Collins, a woman no man could resist. In the 1994-95 season, Susan starred in the movie for television, Seduced and Betrayed; and in the humorous remake of Scrooge, Ebbie.
