Teri shares a close bond with her mother Esther. The woman used to work as a programmer. She served in a big well-known company “Lockheed Martin Corporation”, which dealt with aerospace and defense technologies. Thus, Teri was brought up in a middle-class intelligent family. She knew nothing about poverty or other kinds of deprivation in her early years.

Mrs. Beshur resides with her husband of many years in Laguna Niguel, California as of 2020. Her home town is Chicago, Illinois.


The actress, who most of us know as Susan Mayer, the housewife from the lemon-yellow house at famous Wisteria Lane, has a formidable gift to comedy. Her film list is not limited by the story about for friends, who lived on the same street, in “Desperate Housewives”. She created great female characters in “Heaven’s Prisoners”, “Spy Kids”, “Jane Doe” and many other movies and TV shows.

Teri Lynn Hatcher entered this world on a cozy winter morning in 1964. She was the only beloved child in the family of two technicians Esther and Owen Hatcher. Neither of her parents or relatives was close to any kind of art. Nevertheless, a slim tall girl with huge brown eyes attended ballet and acting classes. She didn’t miss an opportunity to watch a new movie. At the same time, she couldn’t even dream about the career of an actress and performed on the stage as a dancer. Everything had changed when one of her friends asked her to support him and supervise the audition for some new Hollywood show. She agreed – and was immediately cast. Teri played a mermaid in a local show. At the tender age of 16, she has already gained enough acting experience and got a solid paycheck for her work. Despite her ambitions to make it big as an actress, she entered De Anza College to study mathematics and engineering. But Ms. Hatcher didn’t finish her education.

She gained initial popularity as Lois Lane, the legendary reporter, from “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman”. She was busy at the set of the show during four seasons in 1993-1997. Before the last episode of “Lois & Clark” appeared on-air, she had already added some kudos to her name as Paris Carver, James Bond’s lover from “Tomorrow Never Dies”.

In 2004 she played, probably, the most successful role in her life – Susan Mayer from “Desperate Housewives”. After the end of the series in 2012, she continued working on new projects, like the TV show “The Odd Couple” and the comedy film “Madness in the Method”, but none of them enjoyed incredible success.
