LOS ANGELES (AP) — More than 25 years after being cast to say "Dinner is served" on the CBS soap opera "The Young and the Restless," Kate Linder received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Linder told fans gathered for the ceremony Thursday that she was waiting to board a plane when she heard the news.
"I stopped breathing and started crying," Linder said. "The captain of the plane then went on to announce after takeoff that I was getting my star and the flight passengers applauded."
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa attended the event.
"Los Angeles is a place where dreams come true," he said.
In April 1982, Linder delivered the line "Dinner is served" at a casting and was asked to return the next day. She eventually joined the cast as Esther Valentine, the confidante and housekeeper of Katherine Chancellor, a wealthy woman.
Linder has kept the job she had before joining the show: On weekends, she works as a United Airlines flight attendant.
