Dynasty and Julia star Diahann Carroll has died at the age of 84, as The Inquisitr reported. Carroll enjoyed an impressive career in the entertainment industry, and so did Carroll's daughter Suzanne Kay. She is now 59-years-old, and has forged her own way into creating an impressive career in public life as well.
From among her mom's four marriages, Suzanne is Diahann's only child. She was born in 1960, during Carroll's first marriage to Monte Kay. Suzanne grew up being comfortable with the entertainment business, as her father had been a record producer and agent and her mother had worked steadily as an actress throughout Kay's childhood.
Kay went on to attend Columbia University, receiving a master's degree in journalism. Kay interned on the PBS show McNeil-Lehr News and later was a news writer for CNN. Diahann's daughter was also an editor for Essence Magazine.
After focusing on serious news, Kay later became an on-air personality for ETV!, working with Julie Moran and Greg Kinnear. Suzanne wrote sitcom scripts for Fox, produced and co-wrote a project titled Hero, and started a production company named Wonder View Films.
As the Suzanne Kay website details, Diahann's daughter produced a documentary about Ed Sullivan and his work in combating racial injustice. Her site notes that she has also been a writing consultant for a social justice organization created by Harry Belafonte.
