Jeanne Cooper is Dead(Mrs. Chancellor from Y&R)

Jeanne Cooper, a huge soap opera star who played Katherine Chancellor on "The Young and the Restless" for decades, has died. She was 84.

"L.A. Law" star Corbin Bernsen -- Cooper's real-life son -- tweeted this morning that she had passed away. She had fallen ill with an infection earlier this year after helping promote "Y&R's" 40th anniversary.

Cooper joined the show soon after its 1973 debut and had been nominated for 10 Daytime Emmys going back to '89 ... she finally won for lead actress in 2008.

Cooper was married to TV producer Harry Bernsen, Jr. for 23 years before divorcing ... all three of their children -- Corbin, Collin and Caren -- are actors.

-one of those "bad" Williams fans that everyone keeps talking about


I don't mind straight people as long as they act gay in public!

Re: Jeanne Cooper is Dead(Mrs. Chancellor from Y&R)

I never watched Y&R. But I know she was a legend and loved by millions in the Daytime community for the past 40 years. However, I have seen her in quite a few classic tv shows and movies from the 50s & 60s. I've seen her in Gunsmoke, The Untouchables, The Twilight Zone, Thriller, Perry Mason and the movie Rock All Night, to name a few. She seemed like a very cool & down to earth lady in interviews... RIP

I liked her a lot when I saw episodes in America. She was one of those great matriarchs you get in such soaps. And I recall seeing her being interviewed on Oprah several years ago and she was down to earth and had worked very hard to get to where she got. All respect to her.

RIP Ms Cooper I'm sure she will be greatly missed as they don't make 'em like her anymore.

daytime TV

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
