Bio

Susan Lucci is an American actress best known for her starring role as the sexy, sassy, beautiful "woman you love to hate" Erica Kane on the daytime soap opera All My Children, from 1970-2011.

In October 2001, Lucci debuted her cabaret act at Feinstein's at the Regency working with director John McDaniel and Shawn Gough. In his review of Susan, Rex Reed stated, "This is a gal that sends you home smiling."

During her 1999 Broadway debut starring as Annie Oakley in the revival of Irving Berlin's Annie Get Your Gun, Susan not only received a standing ovation from the entire house, but she had lines of fans around the block, both old and new, waiting for an opportunity to catch her either on stage or upon her departure from the stage door, for autographs.

Acting and singing are only two of Lucci's many passions. She has also become a successful entrepreneur. In 1991, she launched the Susan Lucci Collection of hair care products. She created a sensual fragrance, Susan Lucci Invitation, and a fresh, sparkling fragrance, LaLucci. Both fragrances were finalists for the renowned Fifi Award.

In 2001 she introduced her own jewelry, shoes, and accessory lines - all inspired by offering apparel for women of all shapes and sizes. In 2003 she introduced a lingerie line for "beauty of all ages."

Her head-to-toe collection is a constant sell-out and available on the Home Shopping Network (HSN), HSN.com and through Susan Lucci's own personal Web site, www.susanlucci.com.

In June 2002, Lucci also introduced a personal microdermabrasion system with Guthy-Renker, Youthful Essence by Susan Lucci.

Lucci always makes sure to find time for what she believes to be most important: children. She supports Little Flowers Children's Services of New York, the largest child care agency in the state of New York providing foster care and adoption services to all five boroughs as well as Long Island.

She has also served as the March of Dimes' National Ambassador in 2000 and as a celebrity spokesperson for AMDeC (Academic Medicine Development Company) and The New York Cancer Project.

She was presented with the Linda Dano Heart Share Award for her commitment to children in 2003, and in 2004 accepted an award from Albert Einstein Medical Center.

Susan Lucci has been honoured by the City of New York by being presented with a Key to the City by former Mayor Rudy Giuliani. She also received the Ellis Island Medal of Honor, and joined the 1,000 Broadway legends as her caricature became immortalized on the walls of New York's famous Sardi's Restaurant.

She has been named one of E! Entertainment's "Top Entertainers of the Year" as well as one of Barbara Walters' "Ten Most Fascinating People."

Her Lifetime Intimate Portrait aired on the Lifetime cable network in May 2003 and she also hosted the White House Christmas Special for A&E.

She has been named one of Entertainment Weekly's "Top 50 TV Icons" and VH1's "200 Top Icons Of All Time" and appeared on the seventh season of Dancing with the Stars.

Susan's accomplishments and contributions to the world of television and the performing arts have truly made her an icon to millions.
