Susan Blakely Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Sep 7, 1948
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Actress/model Susan Blakely, the daughter of a U.S. Army colonel, was born in Germany and raised in ports of call ranging from Korea to Hawaii to Texas. After a year at the University of Texas, Blakely struck out for New York, where she studied acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse while pursuing a modeling career. By 1972, she was pulling down 100,000 dollars a year for her appearances on magazine covers and TV advertisements; she also began showing up in bit parts in films like [[Feature~V43002~Savages~savages]] (1972) and [[Feature~V53615~The Way We Were~thewaywewere]] (1973). Larger roles came her way in [[Feature~V30051~The Lords of Flatbush~thelordsofflatbush]] (1974), [[Feature~V40964~Report to the Commissioner~reporttothecommissioner]] (1974), [[Feature~V50621~The Towering Inferno~thetoweringinferno]] (1974), and [[Feature~V44074~Shampoo~shampoo]] (1975). It was a television production that brought her full-fledged stardom: in 1977, Blakely appeared as Julie Prescott in the ratings-busting miniseries Rich Man Poor Man. She continued to flourish in TV movies into the 1990s, sinking her dazzling teeth into such meaty roles as Eva Braun in [[Feature~V124254~The Bunker~thebunker]] (1981), [[Performer~P22627~Frances Farmer~francesfarmer]] in [[Feature~V129970~Will There Really Be a Morning?~willtherereallybeamorning]] (1982), and attorney Leslie Abramson in [[Feature~V132744~Honor Thy Father and Mother: The True Story of the Menendez Brothers~honorthyfatherandmother:thetruestoryofthemenendezmurders]] (1994). Susan Blakely has been married to screenwriter Todd Merer and producer Steve Jaffe. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
