Many daytime soap fans joined in paying tribute to Anne’s role on Another World. For instance, a TV Line columnist noted, “In her 35-year career, [Anne Heche did] everything from blockbusters to indie films and enough television to fill a network’s schedule for a week. For me, the blank is filled in with Another World.”
When Anne debuted on Another World in 1987, she faced a challenge. Heche replaced Emmy winning actress Ellen Wheeler. And Anne also needed to portray two roles in playing twins Victoria and Marley Hudson.
But Heche didn’t let her inexperience slow her down. And she stunned viewers and critics in differentiating between Marley and Victoria. As a result, Anne received the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series in 1991.

“My brother Atlas and I lost our Mom,” shared Anne’s son.” After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness. Hopefully my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom.”
