Acceptance Speech: Judith Light (2012)

Goes bald for role

Light talks about shaving off all her hair for her new role in the off-Broadway play Wit, as Vivian Bearing, who has advanced metastatic ovarian cancer.

You can wear a bald pate, but it’s not the same. That was part of the requirement, shaving my head. It was a difficult decision to make. But I said, are you going to let those kinds of considerations stand in the way of being able to play this character and give this performance and this information? The play is about a woman who is ill with ovarian cancer, but it really is about a person’s transformation.

Light talks about starring in Betrayal of Trust based on the true story of Barbara Noel (Light), who finds out that while under sedation, she is being sexually abused by her therapist.

I believe that relationship between therapist and patient is sacrosanct.

Light talks about coming from doing a daytime soap opera, One Life to Live to being the star of the popular Who’s the Boss? primetime series.

I really had to struggle and now, since I’ve made it, I can say it was worth it. I’m a better actress for it, but you pay a real price.

Light stars as Cathy post in Dangerous Affection, a made-for-television film for NBC. The film is about a pregnant woman whose 4-year-old son witnesses the murder of his father.

We’re calling it a drama-comedy-murder-mystery-thriller.

Light who is nicknamed sugar lips, has a weakness for sweets. She talks about how contrary to her character on the show, she herself is an excellent chef. She makes herb bread, olive bread, crusty rolls and focaccia.

I also make a fabulous eggplant Parmesan that my husband goes crazy for.
