Donna Mills (born December 11, 1940) is an American actress and producer. She began her television career in 1966 with a recurring role on The Secret Storm, and in the same year appeared on Broadway in the Woody Allen comedy Don't Drink the Water. She made her film debut the following year in The Incident. She then starred for three years in the soap opera Love is a Many Splendored Thing (1967–70), before starring as Tobie Williams, the girlfriend of Clint Eastwood's character in the 1971 cult film Play Misty for Me.

Mills landed the role of Abby Cunningham on the prime-time soap opera Knots Landing in 1980 and was a regular on the show until 1989. For this role, she won the Soap Opera Digest Award for Outstanding Villainess three times; in 1986, 1988 and 1989. She has since starred in several TV movies; including False Arrest (1991), In My Daughter's Name (1992), Dangerous Intentions (1995), The Stepford Husbands (1996) and Ladies of the House (2008). In 2014, she joined the cast of long-running daytime soap opera General Hospital, for which she won a 2015 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Guest Performer in a Drama Series.


Mills has never married, but has one daughter, Chloe, whom she adopted in late 1994 when Chloe was four days old.

Outside of acting Mills released The Eyes Have It in 1986, an instructional video for achieving several different make-up looks. She went on to release her own line of cosmetics of the same name. She appeared in cover-featured (non nude) pictorials for the October 1987 and November 1989 editions of Playboy.

Une relation de son ex-mari lui permet de rencontrer Neil Walker, directeur d'une toute nouvelle activité télévisuelle de vente de produits. Joy convainc Neil et obtient la présentation de son balai par le présentateur vedette de la chaîne de télé-achat. Mais l'essai en direct est un fiasco total.
