Family & Companions
Television actress Mary Page Keller trained at the University of Maryland and the Boston Conservatory of Music before breaking into television in 1982 with a recurring role on the Manhattan-set soap opera "Ryan's Hope." After her arc on the show ended, she quickly became a cast member on the daytime drama "Another World." Keller played Sally Frame, one half of the sizzling couple that revived the series' flailing ratings; Thomas Ian Griffith played her onscreen lover, Catlin Ewing. Their onscreen chemistry led to an offscreen romance, and Keller and Griffith married in 1991. By this time she had already garnered a lead in on the romance-centered sitcom "Duet," which ran for three seasons before resulting in the spin-off "Open House." When the first wrapped, Keller reprised her role in the latter as a supporting player. Sadly, "Open House" proved short-lived, lasting only one season. She followed this with a string of sitcoms that failed to catch on, including her own "Camp Wilder," which centered on a single mom responsible for raising her siblings after her parents' unexpected demise. Despite these setbacks, Keller has worked regularly in television since the 1980s, scoring guest spots and recurring roles on a number of series. She's even managed the odd film role, with supporting turns in the indie rom-com "Gigantic" and Mike Mills's father-son drama, "Beginners."
