Kimberly Jo Zimmer (born February 2, 1955) is an American actress, best known for her television roles as Echo DiSavoy on One Life to Live and as Reva Shayne on Guiding Light. She has won four Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for the role in Guiding Light.
Zimmer's career began with stage work; an early television role was her portrayal of the character of Bonnie Harmon on One Life to Live in 1978. In 1979, she was tapped to replace Kathleen Turner as Nola Dancy Aldrich on The Doctors. She later appeared opposite Turner in the 1981 film Body Heat in a plot that addressed similarities in their appearance. For much of her stint, she was the show's leading lady, but left the show in July 1982 on a maternity leave, escorted off the show by her real life husband, A.C. Weary, who played Nola's newest conquest. She would return one last time later in the year for the funeral of her former mother-in-law, Mona Croft. She had a brief return to One Life to Live from February through November 1983 as Echo DiSavoy. On August 17, 2010, it was announced that after a twenty-seven-year absence, Zimmer would reprise the role of Echo, effective October 1. Zimmer featured in a story along with former Guiding Light co-star Jerry verDorn (Clint Buchanan), Robin Strasser (Dorian Cramer) and Erika Slezak (Viki Lord). She reprised the role on October 1, 2010, remaining a year, leaving several months before the show's cancellation.
