Life and career
Margaret Foster was born in Reading, Pennsylvania to David and Nancy (née Adamson) Foster, and grew up in Rowayton, Connecticut with four siblings: sisters Gray, Jan, and Nina, and brother Ian. She studied acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York.
When Loretta Swit was unable to reprise her film role of Detective Christine Cagney in the Cagney & Lacey series, Foster took on the role for the short (six episodes) first season, before she was replaced by Sharon Gless. She worked prolifically throughout the 1970s, 80s and 90s. She has guest starred in numerous TV shows including two episodes of Hawaii Five-O (1973 and 1976), The Six Million Dollar Man season two episode "Straight on 'till Morning" (1974), Three for the Road (1975), and the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine season four episode "The Muse" (1996).
Other TV shows include Bonanza, The Twilight Zone, "Template:Here Come The Brides", Storefront Lawyers, Barnaby Jones, Murder, She Wrote, Miami Vice, The Cosby Show, Quantum Leap, ER, and Xena: Warrior Princess. She played the villainous Evil-Lyn in the big screen version of Masters of the Universe and Hera in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.
She was nominated for a 1982 Genie Award for "Best Performance by a Foreign Actress" for the film Ticket to Heaven. Since the 1990s, Foster has acted mainly on stage productions, including King Lear and Barabbas.
Foster's pale-blue eyes were dubbed by Mademoiselle as "the eyes of 1979."
Foster is divorced from Canadian actor Stephen McHattie. She has a son, Christopher.
