Bernard, the older sister of Wings actress Crystal Bernard, was born on May 26, 1959, in Gladewater, Texas. She landed her first acting role in Diva in 1981.

But she didn’t score her big break until 1984, when she was cast as Terry Brock on the ABC soap opera General Hospital. She played the daughter of David Groh’s villainous D.L. Brock for 145 episodes until her exit in 1990. On the show, Terry developed a drinking problem, which ultimately impacted her character’s music career.

Bernard’s other acting credits included appearances on such TV shows as Simon & Simon, Whiz Kids, The Facts of Life, Tour of Duty and Maigret and in movies including Betty Blue (1986), Roselyne and the Lions (1989) and Kings for a Day (1997).

Her last onscreen appearance was in Voices From the High School (2002), where she played a psychologist.
