“My fa­vorite mem­ory of Su­san wasn’t ac­tu­ally on the set of GH.

It was at a read-through of a screen­play I had writ­ten and we were go­ing into pro­duc­tion with soon. I had seen her work as Pat Nixon and other roles and al­ready knew she was an amaz­ing ac­tress, so I asked Su­san

if she would read the role of a lady gang­ster. There was a scene where her char­ac­ter uses a pair

of pli­ers to break the lead char­ac­ter’s fin­ger, but be­fore she does it, she says, ‘You know, I should say that I hate to do

this… but I don’t.’ Su­san, this sweet, beau­ti­ful, well-dressed, unas­sum­ing and very fem­i­nine woman, de­liv­ers the line in front of all these male pro­duc­ers and fi­nanciers, all of them a lit­tle too ‘ma­cho,’ if you know what I mean, and the room erupts into very ner­vous laugh­ter, and I knew that lit­tle Su­san had just scared the

liv­ing [bleep] out of all of them. It was clas­sic!”
