Daytime-drama addicts first became aware of American actress Gail Strickland when she was cast as Dorcas Trilling in the Gothic soaper Dark Shadows (1966-71). Strickland made her movie debut as villain Murray Hamilton's put-upon spouse in The Drowning Pool, sharing the film's soggy "thrill" highlight with star Paul Newman. She later played significant character roles in films like Norma Rae (1979) and Uncommon Valor (1981). On TV, she has been a regular on The Insiders (1985), What a Country (1986) and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman (1992-). In the 1988 weekly series Heartbeat, Strickland played nurse-practitioner Marilyn McGrath, the first lesbian continuing character in Prime Time television. Gail Strickland continued to tote up impressive film credits into the 1990s, notably How to Make an American Quilt (1995) and An American President (1995).
