Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

This dark-haired actress with glittering eyes had a career as a child actress under her birth name, Suzanne Cupito, As an adult, she adopted the stage name of Morgan Brittany and won some notice playing the conniving but beautiful Katherine Wentworth on the CBS primetime soap "Dallas" from 1981 to 1984. Her coloring and vague resemblance to Vivien Leigh resulted in Brittany twice impersonating the famed actress--first in the dreadful feature biopic "Gable and Lombard" (1976), and again in a cameo at the very end of "Moviola: The Scarlett O'Hara War" (NBC, 1980).
