Profile Bio Text
Leslie Charleson (born February 22, 1945 in Kansas City, Missouri) is an American actress most famous for her work in daytime television. Her career began on short-lived soap A Flame in the Wind in 1964. She then moved to As the World Turns as Alice Whipple, but when she learned of the length of the contract she was supposed to sign, she left almost immediately. In 1967 she was an original cast member of Love is a Many Splendored Thing. She played Iris Donnelly Garrison and was a part of a highly popular love triangle with David Birney and Donna Mills. She left the show in 1970. In the 1970s Leslie gave Richie Cunningham (Ron Howard) his first kiss in an episode of Happy Days. The next seven years brought guest-starring roles in several primetime series. In 1977 she was asked to join the soap General Hospital, which by that time was near the bottom of the ratings and months away from cancellation. In 2009, after months of speculation that Charleson would be let go from General Hospital when her contract expired, in July she signed a new one year contract keeping her with the show.
Charleson is a trained and award-winning equestrian. She married Bill Demms in 1988. They divorced in 1991.
