I met Jacquie Courtney when I was cast as Rachel on Another World.
During the years the show was at it's all time height, and set industry-wide standards, it was due in large part to Jacquie Courtney's indelibly romantic incandescence.
Alice and Steve...and mean and jealous Rachel. That was a triangle with edges...and like the show during the time the great Agnes Nixon was Head Writer, it had an edgy, unpredictable quality to it.
Jacquie's Alice had grace and beauty, delicacy and strength, that made her a joy to watch.
She was still going to High School when we met, but she was already a seasoned professional, having worked as a child.
She would do her own make-up. She had fabulous bone structure, those cheek bones, her perfect nose and full lips. And the bluest eyes...she could connect immediately with her emotions, and I'd envy that she could cry and still look pretty, pretty, pretty.
She was the girl you wanted to be...if only. She was the sister/daughter you wished you had. She was the friend you wanted to have.
I am grateful to your website for posting this significant tribute, which gives her fans, and former colleagues the chance to recognize and celebrate the life and contributions of this wonderful woman.
