Emmy Award-winning actress Susan Haskell played Marty Saybrooke, a young rape survivor who has struggled to find her way back from the night of her brutal attack. Marty has finally found happiness with romantic Irish poet Patrick Thornhart, but his past threatens to place the pair in serious danger. As a result of her vivid portrayal of the troubled Marty, Susan won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in 1994.

A native of Toronto, Canada, Susan started modeling at age 16 and was cast in numerous commercials while still in high school. She attended Tufts University in Boston where she graduated cum laude with a bachelor of science degree in biopsychology. While at college, Susan enrolled in a drama course. Though she didn't particularly enjoy the class, she was intrigued and decided to pursue acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

Throughout, she continued to accept modeling assignments, which often took her to faraway places such as Italy, Germany, France, Australia and Japan; and national commercials. Fluent in French, Susan also studied ballet for eight years, and piano and flute for six years at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto.

Susan is very close with her family, particularly her younger sister, Carolyn. The two siblings have modeled together, appearing in national commercials for Oil of Olay and Burger King.

Susan's first professional role came in an episode of the syndicated television series, My Secret Identity; shortly thereafter she was cast in the feature film Strictly Business. From there she went on to ABC's One Life to Live where she won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in the ground-breaking storyline of a young rape survivor.

Susan's recent television projects include roles on CBS's The District, NBC's ER, and a recurring role on the TNN series 18 Wheels of Justice, as well as a special guest role on Port Charles. She also had a recurring role on the series JAG. Susan has guest-starred on Sliders as well as hosted Love...& All That Stuff for Global TV in Canada. She also appeared on Fast Forward, an ABC Afterschool Special.
