Beth Chamberlin Loves Out Loud

Beth Chamberlin joined Guiding Light and took over the role of Beth Raines in 1989. She left Guiding Light in 1991, only to come back six years later after returning to school to study psychology. Devastated by the sudden death of her father in 1999, Chamberlin struggled to come to terms with her loss and contemplated leaving Guiding Light when her contract ended that year. Claire Labine, then-head writer of the show, convinced her to re-sign. Chamberlin often helps with charities and takes part in volunteer work. She frequently works with groups that combat ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's disease"), raising money and awareness for those organizations. She is a board member of the Curtis R. Vance Foundation, a group that raises money for research and helps support ALS sufferers and their families. Chamberlin and Peter Roy married in 1994 and welcomed their son, Luke, in May of 2005. In her free time, Chamberlin enjoys writing, antiquing and working as a ski instructor with her husband. We are thrilled that this lovely and talented woman has found the time to join us for Love Out Loud VI on May 11, 2011.
