Born - 25 October 1928, Taft, California, USA

Dark-haired, narrow-faced actress with prominent cheekbones, mostly in supporting roles. Perhaps best remembered by horror buffs for her star part in Black Zoo (1963), opposite Michael Gough, but by American TV viewers for her leading role in the long-running daytime soap The Young and the Restless. In Hollywood from her early twenties, the actress, born Wilma Jeanne Cooper, made her debut in The Redhead from Wyoming (1952). Subsequent films included The Man from the Alamo (1953), The Naked Street (1955), Over-Exposed (1956), 5 Steps to Danger (1957), Plunder Road (1957), Unwed Mother (1958), Let No Man Write My Epitaph (1960), House of Women (1962), The Glory Guys (1965), Tony Rome (1967), The Boston Strangler (1968), There Was a Crooked Man... (1970), Kansas City Bomber (1972), then much TV until Lethal Justice (1991), Frozen Assets (1992), The Tomorrow Man (2002), Carpool Guy (2005) and Donna on Demand (2009), her last. The actors Corbin Bernsen and Collin Bernsen are her sons.
