Susan Sullivan Biography
She was born on 18 November 1942 in New York City, New York, USA, as Susan Michaela Sullivan, the daughter of her parents Helen (née Rockett) and Brandan Sullivan, who worked in the advertising industry. Susan has two siblings, a brother, Brendan Sullivan, who is a methadone counselor in New York City, and a sister, Brigid Sullivan, who is a senior executive at WBGH-TV in Boston.
She grew up in the city of Long Island Village in Freeport, Nassau County, New York, and attended Hofstra University, where she earned a BA in Theater Studies in 1964. She graduated from Freeport High School in Freeport, Nassau County, New York in 1960. She lives in Los Angeles, California, where she owns a mansion and lives with her boyfriend.
Susan worked at the National Repertory Theatre in Washington, D.C. and seemed to be originally made for the theatre before she got her first role in the 1960s, where she played opposite Dustin Hoffman in the Broadway play Jimmy Shine. In 1969 she was signed to Universal Studios where she appeared as a guest star in various series in which she played roles in daily dramas. Susan is a very talented and intelligent actress who has never ceased to amaze her audience with a range of roles from comedy to drama. She has naturally blonde hair, blue eyes, and a rough, sonorous voice that sets her apart.
Susan also played the role of Lenore Moore Curtin in the soap opera Another World daytime during a five-year hiatus from 1971-1976, when she took over the role of Judith Barcroft after she had started out with a role in A World Apart in 1970. During her childhood, she worked as Playboy Bunny at the Manhattan Play Boy Club, where she recited Shakespeare while serving drinks and had no problem doing so. Susan told: “I had been a waitress before and felt that I wanted to show my legs and earn sixty dollars a night instead of twenty.
She began her career in television movies with her debut in The Winter’s Tale with the role of Perdita in 1967 and also appeared in The Best of Everything with the role of April Morrison in 1970, who is a regular on the show. She appeared at the Medical Center with the role of Joanna Courtney in the episode No Hiding Place and has since appeared in many super hit movies and TV series.
Susan played Kitty Montgomery in the ABC sitcom Dharma & Greg (1997-2002) and Martha Rodgers in the Castle (2009-2016). Since 2016, she has been the only actress to star in three prime-time long-running shows, almost all but one on ABC.
She is a long-time friend of David Selby, whom she met in 1973, David played Richard Channing in Falcon Crest (1981) and names Jane Wyman as her favorite acting mentor and best friend.
Susan Sullivan Married, Husband, Children
Susan still seems to be single even at 75. Isn’t that interesting?
She was dating writer and psychologist Connell Cowan, with whom she has been dating since 1989, but the duo is still not married, although she dated Cary Grant at 23. Her long-time partner was introduced to her by her Falcon Crest co-star Dana Sparks. It seems that Susan prefers it that way. In a 2008 Broadway interview, she said that her commitment is a matter of the heart, not the head and that her connection doesn’t have to be on a piece of paper.
Susan has no children. In an interview with People in 1999, she once said that having children was not part of her agenda. In her words:
“I’m like that cartoon in which the woman has the bubble over her head and thinks, ‘Oh, my God, I forgot to have children!
