Looks like we don't have Donna Mills salary information. Sorry!

1 Had left her best-known role on Knots Landing (1979) at the end of the series' tenth season, to focus on other projects, hence, she returned for the series finale. She joined the cast in 1980 and stayed until 1989.
2 In the same situation as her co-star Michele Lee, she too had a clause in her Knots Landing (1979) contract that her character would never be a grandmother.
3 Met Larry Hagman on The Good Life (1971), where the two embarked on a lifelong friendship, for over 40 years, from 1971 until his death in 2012. The two would co-star together in Knots Landing (1979), which was a spin-off of Dallas (1978).
4 Her idol when she was young was Jane Wyman, the same idol as her future Knots Landing (1979) co-star, Joan Van Ark.
5 Once had a crush on John Pleshette.
6 Best known by the public for her role as "Wicked" Abby Fairgate Cunningham Ewing Sumner on Knots Landing (1979).
7 It was Michele Lee's, 'David Jacobs' (IV)'s and Michael Filerman's call for her to audition for "Abby" on Knots Landing (1979), after the show's first season was nearly on the brink of cancelation, due to low ratings. They were all right to screen test her and hired her, and Mills was a big asset to the show for 9 years, until her departure in 1989.
8 In a long-term relationship with Larry Gilman.
9 Diagnosed with Arthritis. Spokeswoman for B.E.A.T., an arthritis awareness group. [2000]
10 Devoted member of Eco, an environmental group.
11 Was in a long-time relationship with Richard Holland.
12 Adopted daughter Chloe [1995].

1 [on Jane Wyman] Jane was an inspiration to all and had the most amazing spirit-American icon!
2 Comedy is what I want to do now.
3 [Of the way Aussie people were very friendly]: I was really amazed that everybody in the town knew me. They have one television station and Knots Landing (1979) was on it.
4 [About Knots Landing (1979)]: People don't tune in Knots Landing to see our gowns and jewelry. By and large our acting is overlooked because of the machinations of the plot. I have to be on guard all the time to keep Abby fresh and interesting.
5 I played so many of those. That's the reason I like to play Abby. I got tired of playing the victim. You're constantly reacting to things that are happening to you rather than making things that are happening to you rather than making things happen. It's a more active role. Abby keeps things stirred up, and I like that.
6 [Who created her character that became part of prime-time soap history]: Having created her and played her all this time, there's a great deal of me in Abby, and a lot of her has crept into me. I think some of the ambition and some of the guts that she has as a character I've kind of taken on. She helped me in a lot of ways.

1 Short stature
2 Natural blonde hair
3 Deep sultry voice
4 Light blue eyes
5 Frequently played roles that were either victimized or housewrecking
