Constance was born in Whitefish, Montana. When her family moved to New York, Constance attended both the Juilliard School of Music and the American Academy of the Dramatic Arts. Her first professional role was in a summer stock production of "Carousel," which inspired her to pursue a career in musical theater. She is now a respected veteran of the Broadway stage who is remembered most for her starring role as Mrs. Anna in the 1978 revival of "The King and I," opposite Yul Brynner. In addition to her many stage appearances, she is also an accomplished actress in television and motion pictures. Her big screen debut came opposite John Wayne and William Holden in John Ford's "The Horse Soldiers." She went on to appear in another Ford film, "Sergeant Rutledge," and her recent films include "A Perfect Murder" with Gwyneth Paltrow, "The Relic" and "Karate Kid IV." Constance saw an increase in her fan base with her 1997 debut as the evil matriarch, Helena Cassadine, on the popular ABC soap General Hospital. Constance currently lives in Las Angeles with her husband, John Gavin, an actor and one time ambassador to Mexico.
