    She quit her first soap opera, the fifteen-minute long 'Portia Faces Life,' after six months, complaining that the schedule was exhausting.
    Commenting on a 'Days' character whose storyline involved a major illness, she said, 'Why are they letting her have a stroke? I HAD a stroke and they won't let [my character] have a stroke!'
    'Days' producer Ted Corday quipped about her decision to reveal her actual year of birth, 'In the last seven months, she aged four years.' (2004)
    'Seconds' director John Frankenheimer called her one of his favorite actresses.
    She was initially reluctant to take the role of Alice Horton in 'Days,' but decided that she liked working and that roles for actresses over 50 were tough to find.
    She won four Soap Opera Digest Awards for Outstanding Actress in a Mature Role.
