Liza Huber, 47, has followed in her mom’s footsteps and pursued a career in acting– specifically in soap operas. While her mom was revered for playing Erica Lane in All My Children, Liza is best known for her role as Gwen Hotchkiss in the soap opera Passions. She starred in the show from 1999 to 2008. She not only left but retired from her acting career to raise her family and launch her business Sage Spoonfuls. Liza has four sons: Royce, 14; Brendan, 13; Hayden, 10; and Mason, 8.
In October 2015, she opened up about how her son Brendan was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Susan opened up about how proud she is of how her daughter handles Brendan’s condition. “Liza has given Brendan a mantra really,” Susan told ET at the time. “She would say to him, holding him by his arms and saying, my legs are tight. ‘So what?’ She’s raising a full total human being. He’s such a wonderful boy.”
