Personal life and family:
Zimmer is married to actor/director A.C. Weary, and they have three children - two boys and one girl, Rachel. Her son, Jake Weary, is also an actor; he appeared on As The World Turns as Luke Snyder in 2005 as well as various guest roles, including a role on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.
Zimmer graduated from Forest Hills Central Public Schools in suburban Grand Rapids, Michigan, then studied at Hope College in Holland, Michigan and at American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco.
Zimmer's career began with stage work; role was portraying the character of Bonnie Harmon on One Life to Live in 1978.
In 1979, she was tapped to replace Kathleen Turner as Nola Dancy Aldrich on The Doctors. (Ironically, in 1981 she appeared in the film Body Heat, co-starring with Turner, in a plot that addressed similarities in their appearance.) After The Doctors was cancelled in 1982, she had a brief return to One Life to Live in 1983 as Echo DiSavoy.
Later in 1983, Zimmer was cast in the role for which she is best known, the character of Reva Shayne Lewis on the television soap opera Guiding Light.
Zimmer left Guiding Light in 1990 and moved to the West Coast for five years, during which she played Jodie DeWitt Walker on Santa Barbara from 1992 to 1993.
Zimmer returned to Guiding Light in 1995 and has portrayed Reva ever since. Her character's pairing with Robert Newman's Josh Lewis became very popular and the couple has developed into a supercouple and the cornerstone of the soap.
Zimmer has also appeared in several episodic television programs, including Designing Women, MacGyver, Models, Inc., and Babylon 5. She also appeared in several made-for-television movies.
Zimmer frequently returns to Michigan to participate in off-broadway theatre at Augusta's Barn Theatre.
Zimmer has won four Daytime Emmy awards, including the 2006 honor, for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her work on Guiding Light.
