She was told the part would last a very short time and a year later there is still no end in sight. "I keep coming back like a song," quips Miller "Two people who were hired with me have already been written out of the show." It's a measure of her success as an actress. She admits she waited a long time for that SUCCESS. Her life as a professional actress reached its height when she played Emily Dickenson in "The Belle of Amherst" at a new regional theater in New Jersey. She calls that part "a real water- shed in my life." She played the role in schools around the east, which led to a New York connection and her audition for the part of Enid. Everyday she commutes an hour ''o New York City, ream, ,. ,er script on the ride. The show is taped after a brief dry run with many of the lines ad-libbed.

I had some trouble making things camera size." One in a while Miller can let her naturally full voice boom to its limit, as Enid berates Jenny mercilesssily for carrying on with her son. The hard part is says Miller, "I really like Jenny, (Kim Delanie) and it's very hard to be so awful to her on the show." Before a hysterical scene, Miller paces offstage conjur- ing up feelings of rage. Jenny thinks of things that make her sad. For both women the tears are real. "TV is so close up. You really can't fake much," says Miller. "We can step out and get some eye drops if we need them, but so far I haven't." One of the illusions she en- joys dispelling is that a soap opera is pre-written and everybody knows exactly what's ahead. Not so, says Miller. "One of our favorite pastimes is sitting around in the dressingroom trying to figure what's going to hap- pen to us next!" Meanwhile, back in "Pine Valley," Connecticut, her TV son Greg is being treated in the hospital and she won't get back from the west coast in time to visit him the day after his TV surgery. "Imagine not visiting your son the day after surgery!" she laughs. Will the operation work? Will Greg survive the acci- dent? His mother would offer only one small clue about the future of "All My Children... " "If the show has someone as good looking as Greg, and that much of a teen idol, they're not about to let him die. But, it's going to get hairy before it gets better!"
