Linda Gray stars in "Dallas" (2011) on TNT, reprising her role as Sue Ellen Ewing from the original CBS series of the same name that ran from 1978 to 1991.

Linda Gray is an award-winning actress, an accomplished director, a United Nations Ambassador and one of the world's most recognized and admired stars.

Her award-winning portrayal of Sue Ellen, in the legendary TV phenomenon "Dallas," brought her international fame and critical acclaim, earning her an Emmy nomination for Best Actress, Germany's Bambi Award (which is equivalent to the United States Academy Award), and Italy's Il Gato for Best Actress on television, and she was voted Woman of the Year from the Hollywood and Radio Television Society. It was during this time that Linda made her directorial debut on "Dallas," gaining experience working as a director on the show.

Linda began her professional acting career on "Marcus Welby, M.D.," and soon after Normal Lear cast her in the comedy series "All the Glitters."

Linda's television credits include "Lovejoy" with Ian McShane, "Haywire" with Jason Robards, "The Two Worlds of Jennie Logan" playing a dual role, "Not in Front of the Children" with John Lithgow, "The Wild and the Free," "Murder in Peyton Place" and "High Rise."

In the mid-90s Linda starred in a series of television fact-based movies for NBC, including "Why My Daughter?," "The Gayle Moffit Story" and "Broken Pledges: the Eileen Stevens Story," as well as numerous other television movies including "Highway Casanova" and "Accidental Meeting."

She also guest starred as Heather Locklear's mother in Aaron Spelling's "Melrose Place," and starred in Spelling's TV series "Models, Inc." Linda first reprised her role as Sue Ellen in the CBS movie "Dallas: Jr Returns," re-uniting her with Larry Hagman and once again taking them to the top of the TV ratings around the world. Linda also guest starred in the CBS hit TV series "Touched by an Angel," as well as CBS daytime drama "The Bold and the Beautiful," ABC's "Pepper Dennis" and The CW's remake of "90201." She took part in the CBS environmental special, "What About Me… I'm Only Three," which was particularly meaningful to her as she is actively involved in world conservation and environmental issues.

In April 2000, Linda made her theater-directing debut with "Murder In The First," a play adapted from the film version, written by Dan Gordon, whose impressive film credits include "Hurricane." She also starred in the award-winning and controversial play "The Vagina Monologues" for a limited engagement in Atlanta and Beverly Hills, California.

In 2001 she starred in London's West End production of "The Graduate," playing the iconic role of Mrs. Robinson to sell-out audiences and rave reviews; she also replaced Kathleen Turner on Broadway during Turner's vacation from the play. She continued this role for a special two-month engagement in November and December of 2003, playing in key American cities to standing room only audiences.

Among the projects that Linda executive produced, she was most proud of the two-hour community cable program, "Santa Monica: a Community Cares." This was a joint venture between the Director's Guild of America and the City of Santa Monica cable television, City TV.

Adding yet another title to her vast resume, Linda is following in the footsteps of the late Audrey Hepburn, being named Ambassador of Goodwill for the United Nations. "My role is to meet people, listen to what they have to say and see what we can do to help" says Linda. She has already completed her first mission to Nicaragua, creating a documentary film for the United Nations on women and children's health issues. Her next project mission will take her to India.

Linda made her stage-acting debut in the critically acclaimed drama "Love Letters" at the Canon Theatre in Beverly Hills and, receiving rave reviews, she toured in the play with Larry Hagman throughout the United States and Europe. She also appeared on stage in the award-winning play "Agnes of God" in Vienna at the prestigious English Theatre, to sell out audiences.

Linda has formed her own production company, L.G. Productions, and has several projects in development.
