The woman who brought the character Erica Kane to life on the small screen is recovering from heart surgery.
Susan Lucci says she underwent the procedure to prevent a potentially deadly heart attack.
Lucci says she's lucky to be alive.
The surgery took place back in October after it was discovered that she had a 90-percent blockage in her heart's main artery.
Two stents were put in to increase blood flow.
The 72-year-old Lucci played Erica Kane on ABC's "All My Children" for 40 years.
