Life of 'Saturday Night Fever' Star Karen Lynn Gorney 4 Decades after the Movie's Release

Actress Karen Lynn Gorney, best known for her role as the saucy dancer Stephanie in the 70s' mega-hit movie "Saturday Night Fever," is still loved by her fans and the media.

One of the most iconic Hollywood movies, "Saturday Night Fever" released over 40 years ago. While actor John Travolta's career went uphill after his role as the "king of disco" Tony Manero, actress Karen Lynn Gorney took a hiatus from her acting career for a while after the movie's release.

Before Gorney stole audiences' hearts with her role as the headstrong girl who said "no" to Trevolta's Manero in the hit movie, she was famous as Tara Martin from ABC's award-winning show "All My Children."

She marked her return with her roles in the films including "The Hard Way" and "Ripe." She also appeared in numerous TV series including "Six Degrees," "Law & Order," and "The Sopranos."
