Profile Bio Text
Judith Chapman (born Judith Shepard on November 15, 1951 in Greenville, South Carolina) is an American soap opera actress, best known for roles as Natalie Bannon Hughes in As the World Turns, Charlotte Greer on Ryan's Hope, Ginny Blake Webber on General Hospital, Sandra Montaigne on One Life to Live, Anjelica Deveraux Curtis on Days of our Lives, and as Gloria Abbott Bardwell on The Young and the Restless.
Chapman is the daughter of retired United States Air Force general Leland C. Shepard Jr.. Her older sister Patty Shepard (born 1945) also worked as an actress. Chapman has had a long career in movies and television, and more recently, on the stage as an actress and director of many well-received theatrical productions. Her most recent film role was the mother of Judy (Parker Posey) in the 2002 romantic comedy, The Sweetest Thing. She debuted at the age of 16 in the Spaghetti Western Sette donne per i MacGregor. She has appeared on several daytime dramas since the mid-1970s. Her first soap role was scheming Natalie Bannon Hughes on As the World Turns from 1975-1978. A four-month stint as the mysterious Charlotte Greer on Ryan's Hope in 1983 brought her critical acclaim. She joined the cast of General Hospital the following year as the devious Ginny Blake, marrying Dr. Rick Webber after his wife Lesley died to avoid a custody battle over her illegitimate son Mikey. After that stint ended, she had a brief role on One Life to Live as Sandra Montaigne, a con-artist out to scam ex-boyfriend Jonathan Russell. She was the third former General Hospital actress to play the role of wealthy conniver Anjelica Devereaux Curtis on Days of Our Lives, playing that part from 1989-1990 and briefly in 1991. She made her first appearance on The Young and the Restless after that, briefly subbing for Jess Walton as Jill Abbott.
Chapman joined the cast of The Young and the Restless full-time in January 2005, replacing Joan Van Ark in the contract role of Gloria Fisher. In March 2011, it was announced that Chapman had been taken off her contract and bumped to recurring.
Chapman guest actress on the final episode of Galactica 1980 titled "The Return of Starbuck", where she played the Seraph Angela, as well as two episodes of Magnum, P.I. - "The Black Orchid" from Season one and "The Woman on the Beach" from Season two.
