Cady McClain was recognized for her documentary shining a light on women directors!
McClain certainly can be proud of yet a new award to add to her impressive list of accomplishments. Her latest achievement is receiving the Matrix Award from the Association of Women in Communications, which she announced in a tweet. McClain was honored for her documentary, Seeing is Believing: Women Direct, which spotlights women directors in the film and television arenas. Two GH faves are featured in the film: Finola Hughes (Anna) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin) who are budding directors themselves.

Actress and Author
McClain, who started acting as a child and can count My Favorite Year and Pennies from Heaven among her film credits, is also an author. Her 2014 autobiography, Murdering My Youth, is by turns poignant, humorous and ultimately, uplifting. She also is a blog author, has published books of poetry and has contributed articles to a variety of publications on a range of topics.
In addition to the role on AMC that made her a household soap name, that of Dixie Cooney, which she played off and on from 1988 to 2013 (and transition online to the Prospect Park/TOLN Pine Valley reboot), McClain has played other memorable daytime roles as well. She was Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns and Kelly Andrews on The Young and the Restless.
