  • Quotes

    • Catherine Hicks: (when "7th Heaven" was starting its 11th season) The show is like a public service at this point. It gives a lot of people something at a time when the world is falling apart.

    • Catherine Hicks: (about the success of "7th Heaven") I think it came at a time when my generation, as parents, didn't know what we were doing. We read a lot of books, but we don't want to be as strict as our parents were, so as a result we're very lenient. I think Eric and Annie are role models. I think that the parents look to us; the kids look to the show. Everyone can see themselves represented in one or another character.

    • Catherine Hicks: (about her "7th Heaven" character) In real life I have one little girl, and I can barely do that right. I don't know how Annie does it right for each child, and I admire that she's not selfish. There's no time to get a manicure or pedicure, or get her massages or facials. She's there for the kids, and yet she's funny. She has a sense of humor. She's not just a hausfrau.

  • I love 7th Heaven especially the role Catherine Hicks plays. She potrays the part of a loving wife and mother to perfection. She is warm and caring and is always there to listen to her children whenever they need to talk.moreless

    I love 7th Heaven especially the role of Annie Camden. Catherine Hicks plays the part of a loving wife and mother to perfection. She is warm and very caring always ready to listen to her children when they need to talk. Sometimes all they need is a hug and she does this with such compassion and love. She has the natural abillity to make them feel that they are very worthwhile and important human beings always encouraging them to be the very best they can be. I feel that the producers of this fantastic show could not of picked a better person than Catherine to play this role. Well done!moreless
  • She is simply great, especially in 7th Heaven.

    I know Catherine Hicks from 7th Heaven the best. In 7th Heaven, she was just absolutely amazing. She has such talent, and I personally dont think that anyone in the world could have played Annie Camden better on 7th Heaven than her. Catherine Hicks has such talent and I think that she did a great job on her character, Annie, in 7th Heaven. I love watching 7th Heaven and I just love the parts when Sam and David, played by Nikolas and Lorenzo Brino, were little because of how Annie and Eric, played by Stephen Collins, approached dealing with them and how sneaky they were, i thought it was so cute. Catherine just has amazing talent and I have plans of seeing movies or tv shows she is in because I just think she has great talent.moreless
