In the Soap Opera Spotlight: Kate Linder

by at . Comments
Kate Linder PictureKate Linder first joined The Young and the Restless as a nameless day player in 1982.

Once the audience fell in love with her, however, this actress was here to stay. Still, think you know everything there is to know about Linder?

Take a look at these interesting tidbits:

  • Esther also happens to be the name of Linder's grandmother, which co-star Cooper didn't know when she named the character.
  • In 1991, Linder was held at knifepoint in her own home by a burglar, saying of the experience:

"Being an actress helped me through this. Not only being a flight attendant, but being an actress. As an actress, I'm trained to observe. I listen. And I thank God I'm here to talk about it."

  • Linder is the celebrity spokesperson for the ALS Association.
