Susan says one of the best things about playing Erica Kane all these years is the opportunities it's given her. Outside of All My Children, she has appeared on Broadway, danced the cha-cha in front of millions on Dancing with the Stars and recently written her first book, All My Life.
She says she feels like she's in her 30s, but in reality, Susan just turned 64. "I think we're all given a certain gene pool, and it's up to us to do the best we possibly can," she says. "So much is available, so you can do a lot of things."
For the past 15 years, Susan says she's maintained her petite figure through daily Pilates. She also says she's had no plastic surgery, aside from some "nose management," which she had done when she was 47 to help correct a breathing problem.
