(born June 15, 1959) is an American soap opera actress. She was born in Artesia, California.
She originated the role of Ashley Abbott on The Young and the Restless in 1982. After leaving the show in 1989, she tried her hand at nighttime television. Her show, Broken Badges (1990-1991), flopped. She went back to daytime, where she assumed the role of Kelly Capwell on Santa Barbara (1991-1993). When that show ended, she was offered the role of Kristen Blake on Days of Our Lives. Three years into her stint, Head Writer James E. Reilly had her take on the trashier persona of Susan Banks. Her dual characters were such a hit that Reilly penned three more for her to play (Thomas, Sister Mary Moira, and Penelope). While Davidson stated she had fun playing the roles, five characters had worn her out, and she asked to leave the show. Her character, Kristen, was killed by her alter-ego, Susan, and all of the characters were subsequently written out.
After a year-long vacation, she returned to her role on The Young and the Restless, where she remains today.
