Over the years we've examined many Susan Dey magazine covers and it's always nice when a new one pops up. Here's a good one (circa 1992) when Susan Dey was promoting her new sitcom, Love & War.
Way back in 2011, we first examined one of Susan Dey's most crucial roles, her portrayal of an abusive mother in the 1977 TV movie Mary Jane Harper Cried Last Night. While there's not much more to say on this topic (except that you should watch it now if you haven't already!), there is something for you to look at...another promo image of Susan Dey and her young co-star Natasha Ryan:
Just for fun, let's take a look at a few random images of Susan Dey holding coffee mugs/tea cups! This certainly could be considered a worthwhile use of your time, so enjoy!

Over the years, legendary actress Susan Dey had many opportunities to talk on the telephone while appearing in a variety of television and film projects. The following images are by no means a comprehensive listing of Susan Dey phone-call photos...just a random selection (hopefully enough pictures can be collected for a part 2!).

Being a Susan Dey fan is generally fun but one thing that can be infuriating is the fact that one of her projects exists but cannot be seen. In 1977, Susan Dey starred in a sitcom called Loves Me, Loves Me Not which was cancelled not long after it began. Presumably, the show is sitting in some Hollywood vault not being watched by anyone and whoever owns it won't release it in any form because they're sure they won't make any money doing so. Hopefully, pieces of television history such as this will be made available for everyone to see someday (I'm eternally hopeful!).
Meanwhile, here are two more classic ads for Loves Me, Loves Me Not:
Pictures of Susan Dey from this photo shoot (taken around the time she was doing the feature film Looker in the early 80s) are pretty popular. Here's a look at seven images from the session. Of course, Susan Dey began her career as a professional model...so she knew how to strike a pose!
Here is a brief but fantastic interview with Susan Dey about her role on the 1984 prime-time soap Emerald Point N.A.S. It was a great show that deserved, at the very least, a second season. Alas, the series was cancelled before it had time to properly develop, but while it was on it was a genuinely enjoyable piece of television history.
In this exchange with an editor of Movie Mirror, Susan Dey talks about the pressures of shooting a weekly soap and also discusses the development of Celia, her character on the show.
