About Harvey's guest:


Today’s special guest, Linda Gray, is a beloved, multi-award winning actress, director and author who became a global superstar with her portrayal of ‘Sue Ellen’, in the blockbuster TV series “Dallas”, for which she won numerous international awards and was nominated for 2 Golden Globe Awards, an Emmy Award and 4 Soap Opera Digest Awards.  But her career extends far beyond “Dallas”.  


On the big screen, she’s appeared in many movies including “Dogs”, “Oscar”, “Star of Jaipur”, “Expecting Mary”, “The Flight of the Swan”, “Hidden Moon”, “Intuitions” and “Wally’s Will”, which won her 2 Best Actress awards at the USA Film Festival and the North Hollywood Film Festival.  And she’s starred in dozens of TV shows like “Melrose Place”, “The Bold and the Beautiful”  and “Models Inc.”, and many TV movies including “Murder in Peyton Place”, “Haywire”, “The Wild and the Free”, “Not in Front of the Children”, “Moment of Truth: Why My Daughter?”, “Accidental Meeting”, “When the Cradle Falls”, “Perfect Match”, and of course, the 2 “Dallas” TV movies, “J.R. Returns” and “War of the Ewings”.   


On the stage, our guest starred in the world premiere production, in London, of “Terms of Endearment”, AND in the West End production of “The Graduate”, in which she starred on Broadway for a limited engagement.  In 2014 she returned to the London stage to star in the Christmas pantomime “Cinderella”, playing the Fairy Godmother.  She’s also starred onstage in “The Vagina Monologues”, “Agnes of God” and “Love Letters”.   In 1982, she was named Woman of the Year by the Hollywood Radio & Television Society.   In 2013, she was included in People Magazine's list of the Most Beautiful Women in the world.  


And in 2015, she published her highly compelling, emotionally powerful and inspirational memoir entitled, “The Road to Happiness is Always Under Construction”, which became an instant best seller.  The book chronicles our guest’s amazing life journey, through childhood illness, family trauma, and the many challenges of an ultimately triumphant career and fulfilling personal life, bringing her to a place of honesty, serenity and joy.   


And I’m very excited to announce that on December 2, our guest’s highly anticipated, brand new TV movie, entitled “Ladies of the 80s: A Divas Christmas” will be premiering on the Lifetime channel.   This is a delicious comedy in which our guest co-stars with Loni Anderson, Morgan Fairchild, Donna Mills and Nicollette Sheridan, who play 5 glamorous soap opera queens who reunite to shoot the final Christmas episode of their long-running TV series.  


And if all of that weren’t enough, our guest is also a highly respected philanthropist.  She’s been very involved with the Best Buddies Program for people with intellectual challenges, as well as Meals on Wheels and the Force For Good Foundation.  And for 10 years, from 1997 to 2007, she served as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador to promote women's rights, and the health of women and children.
