Five Things You Didn’t Know about Susan Misner

There are all types of actors in Hollywood with each type doing things and working in a specific way. Some reach the apex through quality and others reach theirs through quantity.  For instance, there a number of men in Hollywood who have reached the $20 million man mark — being paid a minimum of $20 million to star in a film. However, the highest grossing actor in Hollywood is Samuel L. Jackson and he is not on the elite list. He simply keeps working non-stop. One actress that may not be a household name is Susan Misner, but Susan has been working steadily in Hollywood since the Mid-1990s.

There is a good chance that you are not familiar with Susan Misner and her work, so allow us to introduce you to her.

1. She is A 70s Baby — Barely

Although you could not tell it by looking at her, Susan was born on February 8, 1971, in Peterson, New Jersey where she had a rather normal life. According to sources close to the actress, it is not clear at one time the light bulb went off in her head that illuminated the path to becoming an actor. It is important to know that she is also a trained dancer and that is likely the connection through which the interest in performing transitioned from only dancing to other forms of entertainment.

2. She Works Steady

When you look at the impressive resume that Susan has compiled since 1996, she has literally been involved in some type of film or television project. Again, she has not achieved that household name status that qualifies her as a bonafide celebrity, but she is definitely building a resume of steady work that speaks to just how gifted and talented she is. You don’t work this consistently in Hollywood with having talent.

3. She Married Inside the Industry

Sometimes entertainers put so much of themselves into their work that the last thing that they want to do is be married to someone inside of the industry. When you marry inside of the industry, it becomes easier to bring your work home with you. Apparently, Susan did not heed the warning because she married director and playwright Jonathan Bernstein. The two have been married since 1999. There have been no reports of any dissension in the marriage, so maybe they figured out how to make it work.

4. She Played Grace Davison on One Life to Live

Although daytime soap operas are all but a memory now, with the exception of a few longstanding shows that refuse to die, there are many actors whose careers were launched from the platform of daytime soaps. Shamar Moore is one person who comes to mind. There are many who believe that the talent that Susan displayed during her time on One Life to Live is what locked her into the steady work she now enjoys.

5. She Does Not Seem to Be Slowing Down

Her most recent appearances on television have been Shut Eye (2016) as Dr. Nora White where she was a part of the main cast for 10 episodes and this year she appeared on The Blacklist as Philomena. It is not completely clear where the actress plans on heading next, cinema or television, but one this is definitely certain and that is that she will use her remarkable talents to land her quality opportunities on a consistent basis.
