She married marketing manager Robert Capshaw in January 1976 and they had one child, Jessica Capshaw, before eventually divorcing in 1980. However, she kept the surname Capshaw, which she used for her professional name upon becoming an actress.


Capshaw moved to New York City to pursue her dream of acting, landing her first role on the soap opera The Edge of Night.
