It wasn’t long after that she would start appearing on the pages of numerous magazines and being picked up as the face of such companies as Maybelline and Noxema, just to name a few. That opportunity would help get her a first shot on the small screen in a small role on the daytime CBS drama “As The World Turns” in 1984.
