In the 1980s and 1990s, she did soap operas like The Edge of Night (1956), Knots Landing (1979) and One Life to Live (1968). In 1992, she got her big break when she was picked for the cast of the nighttime soap opera Melrose Place (1992). Her character, Dr. Kimberly Shaw, is one of the most memorable characters in television and considered by most the glue of the show. In 1993, her longtime companion and fiance, Richard Jordan, died. In 1997, after six years on Melrose Place (1992), she left the show to get her Master's Degree in Psychology. She did several films from 1997 to 2003, when she snapped back into television on the drama series Everwood (2002).She left Everwood (2002) after one season to take what has proven to be the biggest role in her career: Bree Van De Kamp on the comedy-drama series Desperate Housewives (2004). For her work on "Desperate Housewives", she has gotten herself her first award nominations: a Golden Globe, Golden Satelitte, TV Guide Award and SAG Award. The conventional wisdom is that she will be sticking with "Desperate Housewives" for awhile, and is likely to be nominated for more awards because of it. She continues at act on the television series, and became an A-lister and well-appreciated actress.
