Young Jill Foster (then Brenda Dickson, now played by Jess Walton) was Katherine Chancellor’s manicurist, personal assistant, and confidante. What Katherine never expected was that Jill would fall for her husband. An alcoholic Katherine tried everything to stop them from being together, but Philip divorced her and married Jill anyway. After Phillip was killed when a drunk Katherine drove their vehicle right over a cliff, Jill found herself pregnant and gave birth to his son, who she also named Phillip.
Jill eventually remarried when she wed John Abbott (Jerry Douglas), another much older, wealthy man and she had his son, Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson). And, by the time Katherine left this soap world, she and Katherine were friends after years of being enemies. Jill still considers herself a Chancellor at heart and even has Billy (Jason Thompson) helping run a part of Chancellor Industries.
