Gray Line New York honored daytime television icon Susan Lucci by inducting her into its Ride of Fame. Lucci is an Emmy award-winning actress best known for her role as Erica Kane on "All My Children." Now, she can be seen on Lifetime’s "Devious Maids" as well as the host and narrator of Investigation Discovery’s “Deadly Affairs.”
Besides being an actress and television host, Lucci is also an author and entrepreneur, but it is her body of work that she wants as her legacy. To this day Lucci says people still ask her about her most famous role on "All My Children," which ran on air for 41 years.
Her role on the long-running soap opera finally won her an Emmy in 1999, after being nominated 18 times. The win came with a standing ovation, a moment she says she “will never forget.” Lucci told IBTimesTV she also cherishes her work on Broadway, a dream she had carried as a young girl growing up in New York.
Lucci received a Star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame in 2006 and has also been named as one of the 50 Greatest TV Stars of all time by TV Guide. But there is no slowing down for the pint-sized actress, who has big plans for the future and is excited about her work on "Devious Maids," which has been picked up for a second season on Lifetime. Now Susan Lucci can add a seat on the Ride of Fame to her impressive list of achievements as she braved the NYC cold to cut the ribbon on the Gray Line Bus. She joins a list of inductees that includes Joan Rivers, Miss USA and Mets captain David Wright.
