Robin Mattson has previously illuminated daytime television with her portrayals of Heather Webber on General Hospital and Gina Timmons on Santa Barbara. By infusing her roles with an off-beat sense of humor as well as her own brand of wicked mischief, Robin has achieved immense popularity with daytime television viewers. Her performances have garnered her four Emmy Award nominations and three Soap Opera Digest Awards -- two for Best Comedic Performance and one for Best Villainess.
A native of Los Angeles, Robin began to act professionally at the age of six. After appearances on numerous series, including Daniel Boone and The John Forsythe Show, she made her feature film debut starring in Namu, The Killer Whale for legendary producer Ivan Tors. As a child actress, she was placed under contract by Tors, and went on to appear in Gentle Ben, Flipper, The Six Million Dollar Man, and Island of the Lost.
The ambitious Robin attended high school and college simultaneously through an advanced placement program for gifted students, and studied psychology before returning to acting. Television series credits include Charlie's Angels, Happy Days, Silk Stalkings, and most recently, Aaron Spelling's pilot, Green Dolphin Beat. Motion pictures for television include Mirror, Mirror, Are You Alone in the House?, Doctors' Private Lives, False Witness and Murder at the PTA. Robin has appeared in the feature films, Return to Macon County opposite Nick Nolte and Don Johnson; In and Out with Sam Bottoms; Take Two with Grant Goodeve; and Wolf Lake with Rod Steiger. She is also reported to have appeared au naturel in the flick Candy Striped Nurses.
Mattson won a Soap Opera Digest Award as the Best Soap Villainess in 1995. Her performance as the wacky Janet Green was slated to end in May of 1996, but after ABC was flooded with letters from fans urging the writers to reconsider writing out Janet, the Powers That Be regrouped and signed Robin to a new contract.
Upon completion of Santa Barbara, Robin chose to pursue her lifelong passion for cooking by enrolling in the Gastronomic Directives Course at the Los Angeles International Culinary Institute. After graduation in September 1993, Robin's newly acquired expertise inspired her to create a cooking show, and to begin developing her own product line.
