As the Daily News in Los Angeles reports Kate Linder is the only active flight attendant for a major airline who is receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Linder, who plays Esther Valentine on The Young and the Restless, never quit her day job after being cast on the soap opera 26 years ago this week.

"In the beginning, I didn't know what was gonna happen so I didn't tell anyone at the show that I was a flight attendant because I thought they might not take me seriously as an actress," the actress said.
