Catherine Hickland, in a still from One Life to Live.

Catherine Hickland (born February 11, 1956 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida) is an actress, best known for roles on soap operas broadcast in the United States. She first played on Texas as Dr. Courtney Marshall from 1980 to 1981.

Since then, she has portrayed many well-known soap roles. Hickland played the role of Julie Clegg McCandless on Capitol from 1983 to 1987, as well as the dual role of Jenny Diamond from 1985 to 1986. She also played Tess Wilder on Loving (1993-1995) and The City (1995-1997). Since 1998, she has played Lindsay Rappaport on One Life to Live (in 2005 she was moved to recurring status). She has also had guest starring roles on numerous TV series, from CHiPs to Law & Order.

For many years, the desire for her casting directors to keep her thin wreaked havoc on her physique, and caused her to gain much weight while in her numerous soap opera roles. She told all regarding her weight gain and how she has controlled her problem in a TV Guide soap column written by Michael Logan.

In 1987, she filled in for Katherine Kelly Lang as Brooke Logan on The Bold and the Beautiful while Lang was on maternity leave.

She married All My Children star Michael E. Knight on June 27, 1992. From March 24, 1984 to March 1, 1989 upon divorce, she was previously married to David Hasselhoff, who famously played a character named "Michael Knight" in the television series Knight Rider. In Knight Rider, she appeared in 3 episodes: White Bird (first aired on March 4, 1983), Let It Be Me (first aired on May 13, 1984), and The Scent of Roses (first aired on January 3, 1986). Even earlier, she was married to Richard Knowlton in 1978 only and divorced in the same year.

Hickland has also appeared in Broadway musicals, starring most notably in Les Misérables as Fantine. She has also relased a CD and writes a column on skin care for Soap Opera Digest.
