Most actors struggle to find work, and few find work for 43 years — with the same show — but Jeanne Cooper can. She's played wealthy, forceful dowager Katherine Chancellor on CBS's No. 1 soap, The Young and the Restless, for more than four decades. Off camera, she has conquered alcoholism, survived breast cancer, and lived through a wrenching divorce to her husband of 23 years, Harry Bernsen.
