Childhood and education
Susan was raised in Oakland solely by her mother Elizabeth Harrower, as her father Harry Seabold fought in World War II and didn’t get to see his daughter for the first time until she was around three years old. Susan’s mother was a screenwriter and an actress, who was at one point a writer for two series – “Days of our Lives” and “The Young and the Restless”.
