Taylor Miller (born August 18, 1953) is an American soap opera actress.


She is best known for her role as Nina Cortlandt on ABC Daytime's All My Children (AMC), which she played from 1979 to 1984 and from 1986 to 1989. Miller returned in cameos in 1994, 1995, 1996, and 2010 (40th Anniversary Episode). She returned with Gillian Spencer, who played Nina's mother, on April 20, 2010 for the tribute to Palmer Cortlandt (James Mitchell). Her pairing with Peter Bergman's Dr. Cliff Warner was arguably the first supercouple on the soap.

During a break from All My Children, she played Sally Frame on Another World (1985–1986). She also appeared in the NBC series Knight Rider.

On February 2, 2017, Miller made a surprise appearance on the Hallmark Channel's Home & Family show, where she was reunited with a number of her former All My Children castmates.[1]

Education and personal life[edit]

Miller was born Linda Taylor Miller in New Orleans, Louisiana. She attended the H. Sophie Newcomb Memorial College at Tulane University from 1971 to 1975, joining the Chi Omega sorority.

Miller modeled in New York City for only a short time before she was discovered. One month to the day after landing in the Big Apple, she had her first audition for the role of Nina Cortlandt. She won the role of Nina and was on ABC's All My Children only 2 1/2 months after her arrival.

In 1988 Miller married her husband, Eli, also from New Orleans. She currently resides in Chicago, Illinois. She has two children, Eli, III and Elizabeth. Miller did voiceovers, movies, TV guest spots and plays in her 30-year acting career. When both her children went to college, she was inspired to make a career transition into the health and wellness field.

At the age of 50, Miller had an awakening. Her energy was dragging and so was her morale. She was feeling old, dowdy and unexcited by life. After being inspired to follow a career in nutrition, Miller graduated as a Holistic Health Coach from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She specializes in guiding peri-menopausal, menopausal and post menopausal women into the next segment of their journey. Working to uncover old ideas with the Transformational Coaching Technique and changing eating and lifestyle choices, Miller helps women to look better, lose weight and feel more energetic.
