For her education, Donna began at the Garvey Elementary School before she moved to Taft High School. Thanks to her brilliance, the actress was able to move faster than she should have in her education.

From high school she pursued a tertiary education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where she studied drama, before leaving to pursue a dancing career, following in the footsteps of her mother.


It was in 1966 that she made her acting debut when she appeared on Secret Storm which was a soap opera. After that, she made her film debut with The Incident the next year.

She continued in different other productions until in 1980 when she landed a role that would change it all for her and make her more popular. And that was the Knots Landing, which remains her most prominent role as Abby Cunningham.

She has continued to appear in many other TV shows and movies and her most recent acting was in 2015 when she took part in Joy. Still in 2015, she starred in 12 Gifts of Christmas which was a holiday comedy-drama.

Through her years as an actress, Donna Mills has taken part in over 70 films and Tv shows in both the United States and in the United Kingdom.

Donna Mills Personal Life

Over 70 and making for 80 years now, Dona Mills still looks beautiful and definitely younger than her age, causing some to speculate that the actress must have had plastic surgery.

In fact, Dr. Anthony Youn who is a celebrity surgeon pointed out abou her that “Women in their seventh decade of life do not typically look this young without the help of a plastic surgeon. I suspect that she’s undergone multiple cosmetic surgeries, including a facelift to tighten her lower face and jawline, upper and lower eyelid lifts, and possible fat injections.”

In 2000 the actress was diagnosed with osteoarthritis, but she was able to battle it successfully. Because of that, she became a B.E.A.T. Arthritis (Boost Education of Arthritis Treatment) campaigner.
