On the big screen, Elliot appeared opposite Elvis Presley and Mary Tyler Moore in Change of Habit, and also appeared in various primetime TV series like THE MOD SQUAD, KOJAK, BARNABY JONES, and POLICE WOMAN. But when she joined the cast of GH in 1978 as Tracy Quartermaine, she became a fan favorite among daytime audiences!
Elliot left GH in 1980, earning herself a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her work. She then moved over to CBS, playing Carrie Todd on GUIDING LIGHT, and in 1985, joined the cast of ALL MY CHILDREN as the gold-digging Cynthia Preston. In 1987, she began playing Anjelica Deveraux on NBC’s DAYS OF OUR LIVES.
Elliot returned to GH in 1989 but left again in 1993, although she reprised the role of Tracy on sister soap THE CITY in the late ‘90s. In her plotline, Tracy married into the mob, which ended up coming back to haunt her when the character returned to GH again in 2003!
