Happy birthday to Susan Lucci! The actress is perhaps best known for her role portraying Erica Kane in All My Children. The show aired from 1970 to 2011, making Lucci a total TV icon and earning her an Emmy in 1999.

Born 69 years ago today, Lucci has spent a majority of her life in the limelight. In 2008, three years before All My Children came to an end, Lucci competed on season 7 of Dancing with the Stars alongside pro Tony Dovolani. The duo landed in sixth place.

Today, we celebrate Lucci’s incredible multi-talented career. Happy birthday, Susan!
