Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Stage, film, TV actress and former ballerina began her career in the arts as one of George Balanchine's "Baby Ballerinas" in NYC. Hill went on to dance with the Metropolitan Opera's ballet company and the Radio City Music Hall Ballet Corps before shifting to the legitimate theater. She appeared in the Broadway and international touring companies of "Rosalinda", before starring opposite Jose Ferrer (her husband at the time) in the Broadway and national tour of "Cyrano de Bergerac". Moving to LA in 1962, Hill became an occasional actress in films and a regular presence in TV, especially in soaps. She starred as struggling model Poco Thurman on the short-lived serial "Three Steps to Heaven" (NBC, 1953-54), played a supporting role in the equally fleeting "Morning Star" (NBC, 1965-66), and enjoyed a long stint as Mrs. Dawson on "General Hospital." Hill also played a recurring role on "That Girl" in the 60s.
