Born Suzanne Crumpler on July 9, 1944 in Colonial Heights, Virginia, Suzanne Rogers is an actress who is best known for her role as Maggie Horton
in Days of Our Lives. Suzanne Rogers was apparently inspired by another Hollywood star’s name Ginger Rogers. When she was seventeen, she left her hometown to join the Rockettes, a popular precision dance company, at Radio City Hall.
In 1973, Suzanne Rogers moved to Los Angeles, the same year when she joined Days of our Lives. Six years later, she won an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Maggie Horton, so far the only member of the cast to have won an Emmy in a competitive category.
Other than Days of our Lives, Rogers has other notable screen credits to her name, which includes Never Say Never: The Deidre Hall Story in 1995, Knight Rider in 1985, Little House on the Prairie in 1989, and Quincy M.E. in 1977. In 2004, she reached the pre-nomination stage of the Daytime Emmy’s for Outstanding Supporting Actress for Days of our Lives. This was one year after her character was killed in 2003 to reduce the soap’s budget. After a sharp decline in the ratings, however, the show’s executive producer rehired all the fired actors with new contracts.
She likes spending her time helping people afflicted with myasthenia gravis, a rare muscle disease with which she was diagnosed in 1984. Her health, however, has improved over the past few years. She is currently in remission and lives a strong healthy life. She married actor Sam Groom in 1980 yet the two filed for divorce two years later.
