Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

As talented as she was beautiful, Catherine Hicks had a master's degree in theater and Broadway credits by the time she earned an Emmy nomination for playing Marilyn Monroe in the warmly received "Marilyn: The Untold Story" (ABC, 1980). She continued her ascent with high-profile roles in projects like the campy miniseries "Jacqueline Susann's Valley of the Dolls" (CBS, 1981) and the series "Tucker's Witch" (CBS, 1982-83), as well as feature films "Peggy Sue Got Married" (1986) and, most famously, as the whale-obsessed biologist in "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" (1986). She won a Best Actress Saturn Award for her starring role as a mother who buys Chucky, a demonically possessed doll, in the horror hit "Child's Play" (1988).
