Hope Bauer

Does anyone recall the actress’s name that portrayed her back in the day? I recall Alan Michael mentioned she was an alcoholic. I recall as a kid she started drinking when her marriage to Alan started going downhill. What was the age gap between she and Alan? Did she ever appear on the show in later years, when AM became an adult?


There were a few. The last one was Elvera Roussel who played her mid 70s-80s. She seemed half his age.

Thanks. I knew there was a big gap. I’m guessing at least 15 years. Do you recall how the Bauers reacted to their courtship?

No I never saw it. It was before me but sounded interesting!

Not well. Alan and Mike were arch enemies.

I have never forgiven GL for breaking up
Alan and Hope.
