Susan Lucci (born December 23, 1947 in Scarsdale, New York) is an Italian American Daytime Emmy-award winning actress. She is the mother of fellow soap actress Liza Huber. There have been widespread rumors (especially on the Internet) that Susan Lucci's mother was actress Phyllis Diller but this is untrue; the two are not related.

She is best known for the role of Erica Kane (full name Erica Kane Martin Brent Cudahy Chandler Montgomery Montgomery Chandler Marick Marick Montgomery) on the ABC television soap opera All My Children, on which she has appeared since the show's inception on January 5, 1970. She has appeared in a number of television shows and made-for-TV movies. In 1995, Lucci appeared in the Lifetime television movie Ebbie. This film was an updated version of Dickens's classic A Christmas Carol. Lucci played a Scrooge-like department store owner visited by Marley and the three ghosts on Christmas. Many critics praised her performance and the film has become a holiday favorite.

She was nominated for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series Emmy for her work on All My Children almost every year since 1978, losing five times in this category to fellow ABC soap actress, One Life to Live's Erika Slezak. The long period without a win ended up being the source of many jokes. Lucci's name became synonymous with never winning an award, and she was even asked to parody her loss on Saturday Night Live (in the skit, even the hairdresser won an Emmy, while she did not). After eighteen failed nominations, it came as a shock to both her as well as the viewing audience when she finally won in 1999.

In early 2005, Lucci earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
