From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Judith Barcroft (born April 16, 1951 in Washington, DC) is an American soap opera actress.

She began her soap career in 1966 playing Lenore Moore on Another World, a role she played until 1971. In 1970, she made a cameo appearance as Lenore on the AW spin-off, Somerset.

After leaving AW, she took over the role of Ann Tyler on All My Children. She played the role for six years, leaving AMC in 1977 for another ABC drama, The Edge of Night. Barcroft played Louise Cavanaugh on the series for one year, exiting in 1978.

That same year, she stepped in for Marie Masters in the role of Dr. Susan Burke Stewart on As The World Turns while Masters was on emergency leave. It was at this time that Barcroft took a three-year hiatus from acting, returning to daytime in 1981 on Ryan's Hope in the role of Barbara Wilde.

In 1983, she returned to As the World Turns in a role the writers wrote just for Barcroft. She played the short-term role of Sara Comstock for one year. Barcroft then departed the serial for The Edge of Night in a completely different role, playing Eleanor Prentice until the show was canceled in the winter of 1984.

It was at this time that Barcroft ceased acting full-time. In 1987, the producers of One Life to Live asked her to fill in for Erika Slezak as Viki Davidson while Slezak was on maternity leave. Her final appearance on soap operas was in 1988, playing a pharmacist for one day on Another World.

Judith has been married to soap opera writer Wisner Washam since June 15, 1969. They have a son, Ian Washam.
