After bursting onto the soap opera scene with her auspicious debut as a terrorist on One Life to Live back in 1978, three-time Emmy Award-winner Kim Zimmer would go on to become one of the most prolific stars in daytime television. A native of Grand Rapids, MI, Zimmer began her studies at Hope College before traveling to San Francisco to train as an actress at the American Conservatory Theater. While early appearances in The Doctors, MacGyver, and Models, Inc. helped to gain the rising talent sizable exposure at the onset of her career, it was Zimmer's long-running role as Reva Shayne Lewis Cooper on Guiding Light that formed the foundation of her career. Signing on to Guiding Light in 1984 and remaining in the cast for over two decades, Zimmer earned a staggering 11 Emmy nominations (with four wins), and 12 Soap Opera Digest nominations (with two wins) for her enduring performance in the series. During a brief time in the early '90s, the actress took a break from her popular Guiding Light role and appeared as police officer Jodie DeWitt Walker on Santa Barbara. In addition to her television work, Zimmer also appeared in such feature films as Body Heat and on the stage in John Patrick Shanley's off-Broadway play Four Dogs and a Bone.
