Before the role of Dr. Dorian Cramer Lord Callison Vickers Hayes on this ABC daytime drama was made famous by Robin Strasser, Dixie Carter filled in for the role's originator, Nancy Pinkerton, in 1974.


When Pinkerton returned after an illness, Dixie moved on to play Brandy Henderson on The Edge of Night for two years. Robin Strasser arrived in Llanview in 1979, added many extensions to Dorian's name throughout her run, and made her one of daytime's most beloved vixens.
