HILLARY B. SMITH
Character: Nora Buchanan

Hillary B. Smith plays Nora Buchanan, a headstrong attorney whose quick wit has kept her smiling through some difficult times. Hillary was awarded the Daytime Emmy Award as Outstanding Lead Actress in 1994 for her portrayal of the incredibly charming, irrepressible Nora. The youngest of four girls, Hillary was raised in Palm Beach, Florida. At 14, she returned to Massachusetts, where she was born, to attend boarding school. While enrolled at Dane Hall School, she worked with a geneticist at the New England Medical Center.

She attended Pine Manor College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, where she headed the drama club; and transferred to Sarah Lawrence College because "it had a masters program in genetics as well as theater." It wasn't long before she turned her attention from gene screening to screen-testing. While still a senior in college, Hillary performed off-Broadway in Song Night in the City. She has also appeared in the off-Broadway production of World of Black and White and the Broadway musical, A Real American Hero.

Within the last few years, she performed in Wendy Wasserstein's Broadway play, The Heidi Chronicles, and off-Broadway's Lips Together, Teeth Apart, by Terrence McNally. Motion pictures in which she has appeared are Hair, Purple Hearts and Love Potion #9. Hillary's primetime television experience includes starring opposite Gene Wilder in Something Wilder, and a role on the series, No Soap Radio, with Steve Guttenberg. Daytime audiences are familiar with Hillary on The Doctors, as nurse Kit McCormick; and on As the World Turns, where she played policewoman Margo Hughes for six-and-a-half years. Hillary left As the World Turns in 1989, after the birth of her second child, Phips, who originated the role of Adam Hughes, Margo's son. Hillary is an inveterate lover of word games. She and her husband, Phillip "Nip" Smith, whom she met at age 14, have two children, Courtney and Phips. -from ABC Daytime
