Linda O. Cook (June 8, 1948 – April 12, 2012) was an American actress, perhaps best known for her portrayal of Egypt Jones Masters on the American daytime soap opera Loving from 1988-91, and from 1993-94. She also appeared on One Life to Live, Guiding Light, As the World Turns, Ryan's Hope, All My Children, Real Ghosts (aka Haunted Lives: True Ghost Stories) and The Edge of Night.
Cook was born in Lubbock, Texas, but left there at age 3 due to her fathers frequent job transfers. While attending high school in Atlanta, Georgia, Cook was accepted into the Atlanta Civic Ballet and toured with the group. She made her off-Broadway debut in the 1974 play The Wager and would go on to appear in several other off-Broadway plays. In 1985, she starred opposite Carroll O'Connor and Frances Sternhagen in the Broadway play Home Front.
