Race or Ethnicity: White

Executive summary: Susan Mayer on Desperate Housewives

In high school, Hatcher was a cheerleader, head of the dance team, and was voted "Most Likely to become a Solid Gold dancer". She never danced for that show, but she did spend a year on the cheerleading team for the San Francisco 49ers. She studied math and engineering at De Anza College simultaneous with drama at The American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco, where Annette Bening was one of her teachers. At 21, she joined the cast of The Love Boat for its final season, playing a singing and dancing mermaid. She had a recurring role on MacGyver opposite Richard Dean Anderson, and they were also together off the set for about three years. In the late 1980s she was briefly in the cast of Capitol with Rory Calhoun.

Her first film was Christopher Guest's The Big Picture, and her first starring role was in Tango and Cash. She was nominated for a Golden Raspberry as Worst Supporting Actress in 1996, for her work in Heaven's Prisoners and 2 Days in the Valley. She later played Lois Lane in the series Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, and now plays single mother Susan Mayer on Desperate Housewives, a program that has been an enormous success, fueled by snarky writing and media speculation about catfights among the five leading actresses.
