Actress Darlene Conley, who starred for nearly two decades in the popular soap "The Bold and The Beautiful," has died at age 72.

Conley had earned two Daytime Emmy nominations for her role as fashion mogul Sally Spectra in the iconic American soap opera.

Conley had appeared in the classic Hitchcock film, "The Birds" and on TV, she starred in "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," and "Cagney and Lacey" among some of her series.

The Irish-German American actress grew up on Chicago's south side. 

Her publicist Eva Demirjian said she died on Sunday of stomach cancer at her Los Angeles home, surrounded by family and friends.  Demirjian also stated that she was diagnosed with cancer about three months ago, and The Bold and the Beautiful's producers were deciding how to deal with her character in the soap.
