Model-cum-actress Susan Walters is best known for her portrayal of one-time model Diane Jenkins on the long-running soap opera "The Young and the Restless." Walters on-screen acting career began in soaps; her TV debut was on the Pennsylvania-set "Loving." In 1987, she earned her first recurring primetime television role in Aaron Spelling's San Francisco-set soap, "Hotel." She became a favorite of Spelling's, and the prolific producer went on to cast her in a number of his dramas, including the nurse-centric medical drama "Nightingales" and the sexually charged, courtyard complex-set soap, "Melrose Place."

Walters found her niche in TV dramas and has spent much of her career working with that genre. In the 2000s, she took on recurring roles on two teen dramas: "One Tree Hill," which focuses on the lives of drama-attracting North Carolina high schoolers, and "The Vampire Diaries," which focuses on a teen girl caught in the crosshairs of a rivalry between a pair of undead brothers. In 2010, Walters returned to the soap opera world on "The Young and the Restless."
