She joined “The Today Show” later that year and worked as a “Today Girl,” a correspondent who discussed fashion, lifestyle and light news stories.
While in New York, Lee studied acting with Lee Strasberg. She broke into TV with an appearance in “Man from UNCLE,” and also guest starred in TV series “The Fugitive,” “Star Trek,” and “Perry Mason.”
After “Barnaby Jones,” Lee portrayed Lily Munster for three seasons in “The Munsters Today.”
More recently, Lee is best known as Ruth Martin on the soap “All My Children.”
"I've been so incredibly lucky," Lee said in 2011. "One hears so many horror stories from actresses who test for role after role and never get anything. I've been working steadily for more years than I care to count."
