Jeanne Cooper has been working in show business for the past seven decades of her eighty-three years. She is beloved by soap opera fans for her long-running role as the wealthy, tough-as-nails but (generally) good-hearted Katherine Chancellor on CBS’ The Young and the Restless, and has been with the show since its debut year, 1973.

Things continued to be awkward for them, and Sofia said that their meeting together was a mistake. She opted to go find Malcolm.
