Any viewer of the daytime serial The Young and The Restless is very familiar with the work of Kathy who is now known by her married name, Kate Linder (class of 1965). Kathy attended and graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in drama.


Since 1985, Kate has portrayed “Esther Valentine,” confidant and housekeeper to “Katherine Chancellor,” played by Jeanne Cooper (the mother of L.A. Law’s Corbin Bernson). Other acting credits include Bay City Blues, Archie Bunker’s Place and Dream Girl. She has also appeared in Rocky III, One Good Cop, The PCP Story and the play Bee Luther Hatchee. Among her other stage work are roles in Three Penny Opera, Sweet Charity, Promises, Promises and Gypsy.


Kate is active in Big Sisters of Los Angeles, Love Is Feeding Everyone (LIFE) and hosts a celebrity bowling tournament that benefits both causes. She is also very active in various efforts to raise awareness and funds related to AIDS, including TV Cares; an AIDS charity for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.


As if all that were not enough, Kate also works as a flight attendant for United Airlines, mostly on weekends. “I started flying with the airlines in 1978 and I never quit. I love traveling, meeting and serving coffee to total strangers. I’m convinced it keeps me grounded, “ Linder laughs.


Kate is married to Ronald Linder, President of American Medical Productions, who is a world-leading expert and author on drug abuse. They reside in Los Angeles.
