Celebrity Monday - Susan Lucci as Erica Kane


Susan Victoria Lucci was born on December 23, 1943, on New York. She's an American actress, television host, author and entrepreneur, her most famous role was for a daytime drama soap opera called "All my children", haired by ABC. for 41 years ( 1970 - 2011). she has a very extensive career
on film and television appearance. For more - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_Lucci


Erica Kane, her character on "All my Children" was so popular on the soap opera history (wonder why she hold the role for so long?) that Mattel couldn't be out of "track" about it...

1998 Erica Kane Barbie Doll

 This doll is a recreation  of Erica's look on the unforgettable Crystal ball episode when she makes her first public appearance back in the Pine Valley Society, just like in the show - (couldn't find any pictures from it...)










And, the following year another one.

1999 Erica Kane Wedding Barbie Doll

The dress on this doll is a recreation of the beautiful gown used by the actress on the shown.



I really liked the outfit in the bride one. Mattel did try to do a good job on the face, but for me she's a little off, I would rather have a "regular" Barbie mold head than a "Erica Kane" one. t least they have tried...

Hope you all have a great Week!

  2. Coincido contigo en que la actriz es muy bella y la cara que elaboraron es opacada al lado de la real. Espero puedas obtener una, hasta pronto.

  3. Thanks for sharing your photos of these dolls. They are lovely. I think of this as the early Summer face sculpt.

    Regarding the soap opera celebrity dolls, I only recall one other doll - Marlena Evans - in this series. Do you know of any others in this series?

  5. I purchased the Crystal Ball Episode Erica Kane and the Marlena Evans dolls. There was a time when I had free time to watch the "Soaps". The both have great head sculpts! I don't think they did any other actresses.
