Marcy Walker (Eden Capwell)

Birth Name: Marcy Lynn Walker
Born: November 26, 1961 in Paducah, Kentucky, USA

Marcy Walker played Eden Capwell from episode 45 (September 28, 1984) to episode 1773 (August 09, 1991). In the soap opera ‘Santa Barbara’, Marcy Walker was Robin Wright’s older sister.

In June 23, 1988, Robin left ‘Santa Barbara’ forever and Marcy Walker talked about Robin Wright’s departure from the show. Marcy admitted that it would be really hard adjusting to her new on-screen sister played by Kimberly McArthur. She says: “Robin is a really special person. We were so close. We had our times…, times when we misunderstood each other and times when we’d walk away from a scene together and know that we really loved one another. We were like family…, like sisters in a way. Robin and I worked together from the beginning of this show. I saw her grow up. She saw me grow up. We had such a history together. To look at someone else and have to play that same kind of relationship is going to be really hard.”

2 thoughts on “Marcy Walker (Eden Capwell)

  1. Marcy Walker was amazing as Eden. I loved all the original Capwell children: Marcy, Todd Mckee, Lane Davies and Robin Wright. Then with all the nonsense recasts and all of them leaving the show was never the same. I never liked the others Mason, Ted or Kelly’s.

  2. 5 marriages between 1983 and 1999? It seems that in her real-life Marcy Walker is more like Kelly Capwell than Eden Capwell.
