Lauren Koslow News

Lauren Koslow (born March 9, 1953 in Boston, Mass.) is a soap opera actress best known for her roles on Days of Our Lives, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless.

Koslow was educated at the University of Massachusetts and Virginia State University, graduating with a degree in theatre and costume design. She began her acting career with touring theater work in such productions as Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Dial M for Murder.

In the mid-1980s, Koslow landed the role of Lindsay Wells Abbott on the hit CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless, which she played from 1984-1986.

She was then asked by the creators to become an original cast member on the new sister soap, The Bold and the Beautiful, which debuted in the spring of 1987. She portrayed fashion designer Margo Lynley from the inception until 1992 when she left to begin a family.

Through the early 1990s Koslow busied herself with guest starring roles in several primetime television series including Silk Stalkings and The Nanny.

However, she was lured back to daytime in 1996 in order to replace actress Deborah Adair who left Days of Our Lives to, ironically, spend more time with her family.

In the role of vindictive call girl turned corporate exec Kate Roberts, she flourished on Days of Our Lives, becoming a woman fans love to hate. The character is known for her wickedness and deception, specifically her ongoing war with fellow Salem resident Sami Brady.

In 2000 Koslow was nominated for a Soap Opera Digest Award as outstanding supporting actress for her work on Days of our Lives.

Presently, she maintains a family on her ranch in Northridge, Calif., in the San Fernando Valley with her husband, make up artist Nick Schillace (whom she married in 1987), and children Zack and Milli Kate.

Days of Our Lives Quotes

Lucas, I raised you to be a better liar than that.

Kate

Deimos: I believe that the younger generation in this family have been handed everything on a silver platter, and they don't appreciate it.
Maggie: By younger generation, you must mean Sonny.
Deimos: All right, fine. Let's start with Sonny. I'm trying to work with him, Maggie. I've just given him a very important position in the company and instead of being grateful for the opportunity, he's being an oversensitive, temperamental pain in my neck. But at least he's still here. Brady, on the other hand, he's taken off, abandoned the family, Titan. He's left me all alone to deal with the Hernandez family on my own.
Maggie: Well, there's an easy solution to the Dimera and the Hernandez families. Just bow out.
Deimos: I do that and I lose face.
Maggie: With whom?
Deimos: With everyone. Except Nicole. She's taken off too.
Maggie: And to think I naively thought that maybe I'd gotten through to you the last time we had a serious conversation. Let me ask you a question. Has doing things your way gotten you anywhere?
