Please give me an update on Adrienne Barbeau, who played Carol on the 1970s sitcom Maude.
–Abe Burke, Linden Va.
Barbeau spent most of 2011 in the recurring role of Suzanne Stanwyck on General Hospital and also released her second vampire novel, Love Bites. She's got a small role in Ben Affleck's upcoming new film Argo, based on the true story of an unconventional CIA mission to rescue a group of Americans stranded in the middle of the Iranian revolution of 1979, "which I'm very excited about," says Barbeau, 66. Next on her plate is a horror flick, a stage musical in her hometown of Sacramento, Calif., and another book. The actress has a 28-year-old son from her first marriage and is enjoying being a soccer mom to 15-year-old twin sons from her current marriage to writer/actor Billy Van Zandt.
