Rebecca starred in the pilot episode of the Benjamin Bratt series, The Cleaner. The A&E original series is due out sometime in 2008.
Rebecca's first soap opera role, as "Cecilia" on Loving, was originally supposed to last 6 episodes, but fans of the show loved the character so much she ended up staying 6 months. She left the show in order to join the cast of Guiding Light, as "Jessie."
Rebecca decided she wanted to go into acting after watching Little House on the Prairie when she was young. She says she was a "fanatic of the show, and always wanted to be Mary."
In 2005, Rebecca starred in a commercial for "Tag Body Spray," in which she played a mom who makes a pass at her daughter's boyfriend.
Rebecca, and the cast of Fantastic Four, appeared on the cover of Film Threat magazine's October 1993 issue.

Rebecca was a member of the crew, as a buyer, for the 4th season of the hit CBS reality show, Survivor. She got the job through her best friend who is a production designer for the series.
During the California fires of 2007, Rebecca was forced to evacuate her home in Malibu as a precaution. Fortunately, her house was not damaged, although the fires were very close to her home.
Rebecca's hobbies include dancing, horseback riding, rock climbing, and running.
In 1993, 12 years before Jessica Alba played the part, Rebecca was cast as "Sue Storm" in Oley Sassone's Fantastic Four. It is considered one of the worst comic book movies of all time, and was never officially released, though there were bootlegs circulating.

In 1980, Rebecca won the title of Miss Nebraska and went on to compete in the Miss USA pageant later that same year.
Rebecca: (on her Guiding Light character) What I liked about playing Jessie is that because of her [inexperience], everything she did was a first-time discovery. She was a role model for young girls, which was nice because the show at that time had a huge fan base in that age range.
Rebecca: I did theater in high school but I was real academic. It wasn't logical to say, 'Oh, I'm going to be an actor.' I was a straight-A student in high school and in college. My major was speech in journalism.
Rebecca: (on 1993's "Fantastic Four" movie) When I walked into the audition, they had pictures on the wall of Susan Storm and I thought, 'This is good. She looks just like me!'
Rebecca: (on doing love scenes) It's a different kind of intimacy. What's been interesting for me is that I've become less self-conscious about that kind of stuff as I've gotten older.
Rebecca: I never played a mom before until Port Charles, then all of a sudden, I was the mother of a 21-year-old! I never had a child so it's kind of funny. But there's always this thought line with those roles that I have to take as a compliment and that it's at least a "hot mom."
