Judith Lynn McConnell was born on April the 6th in 1944.
She spent her childhood in Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania), living in
a beautiful american colonial style house with two white pillars
on the fronton.
During her time at the college, she really started out wanting to be a
dancer. She started as early as first grade, taking ballet and tap.
But she finally decided to give it up because she "discovered that she
liked the boys more and couldn't give them up to discipline herself as
a dancer". So,she started acting in professional theatre in
Pittsburgh, while still in High School, doing community theater and
summer stock.

At the same time, in 1965, she was asked to try out for Miss
America. Judith has never been a girl who wanted to be Miss
America." I think I had feminist politics at that time even before
they really emerged. And I felt like a racehorse".But, the
people who were setting up the pageant in Pittsburgh asked her
because she had been doing work at the Pittsburgh Playhouse
and because she was student at the Carnegie Mellon University
(and of course because she was really pretty!).So, she accepted,
got past all the preliminaries , was a contestant in the Miss
Alleghany county and won. Then, she went to the state and won
title of Miss Pennsylvania.

After her years in the Carnegie Mellon, she went to New-York to start
her career. She first worked as a waitress in a restaurant in the
evening, to survive and to be available during the day for the auditions.
She made a few commercials for a time but finally was engaged to play in
the pilot of a new serie. "I was so happy...my friends couldn't believe it".
So, Judith left New-York to go to Los Angeles where the soap should
have been shot. But unfortunatly, the role of Judith was canceled. She
was alone, in a city she didn't know, without any job and during the
christmas time. She stayed 7 years in California before going back to
New-York. There, she became lucky.In 1973, she was engaged to play in
"General Hospital". Judith began the first of several stints on Daytime
TV when she landed the role of Augusta McLeod.
