Suzanne Rogers News

Suzanne Rogers (born Suzanne Crumpler on July 9, 1944 in Colonial Heights, Virginia) is an Emmy Award-winning American actress.

Her stage name was inspired by Ginger Rogers. A former Rockette, she is best known for playing Maggie Horton on the daytime serial Days of Our Lives, beginning in 1973.

Her character was killed off in 2003 (a way to reduce the Days of Our Lives budget), the third victim of the Salem Stalker story arc. The storyline was rather controversial, and resulted in the firing of nine actors over the course of a year.

After ratings improved, executive producer Ken Corday rehired all of the fired actors with new contracts. The storyline was explained as a hoax.  Currently, Rogers is the only member of the Days of Our Lives cast to have won an Emmy in a competitive category.

Rogers was diagnosed with the rare muscle disease myasthenia gravis in 1984, but is currently in remission.

Later, Rogers insisted that her character, Maggie, be diagnosed with the same disease on the show, in order to educate viewers.

Married and divorced once, to actor Sam Groom. Suzanne Rogers resides in Studio City, California.
