Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Deborah Adair is known and remembered for her work on some of the most popular and beloved daytime soap-opera programs, such as "The Young and the Restless," "Santa Barbara," and "Days of Our Lives." Her role as Kate Roberts on the last-mentioned sudsy melodrama was her most successful soap venture and won her a Soap Opera Digest Award. Despite her success in daytime theatrics, Adair is equally well-remembered for her frequent work on many of producer Aaron Spelling's most successful night-time programs, including "Dynasty," "The Love Boat," and, in the 1990s, "Melrose Place" (which her husband, Chip Hayes, co-produced, co-wrote, and directed), as well as the television movie "Rich Men, Single Women." Adair also guest starred on a number of non-soap-opera programs, such as the geriatric amateur-sleuth show "Murder, She Wrote," the resourceful-bricoleur actioner "MacGyver," and the grit-meets-glitz cop-show powerhouse "Miami Vice." Adair gave up the glamour of working in front of the cameras in 1995 to raise her family.
