Biography
American actress Catherine Hicks was educated at St. Mary's Notre Dame and Cornell University; after several seasons of stage work, she launched a lengthy TV career. Hicks was seen regularly on the sitcom The Bad News Bears (1978) and starred in the quasi-fantasy detective series Tucker's Witch (1979); she also portrayed Dr. Faith Coleridge on the ABC daytime drama Ryan's Hope. On two occasions, Catherine has had the uneviable task of recreating roles essayed by well-known actresses in earlier films. She played the Gene Tierney role in Bill Murray's remake of The Razor's Edge (1984), and the Barbara Parkins role in the made-for-TV Jacqueline Susann's Valley of the Dolls (1990). In most films, Hicks has provided strong support to the name-above-the-title stars, notably in Peggy Sue Got Married (1986) Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1984) and Garbo Talks (1984). Leading roles came to Catherine Hicks in several films of the late '80s and early '90s: In She's Out of Control (1989), Catherine is Tony Danza's lady friend, and in Child's Play (1988) she's the unlucky mom of the unluckier kid (Alex Vincent) who owns the malevolent "Chucky" doll.
