Sadie Gray (née Scott) is a fictional character from the ABC Daytime soap opera One Life to Live. Sadie is a gifted gospel singer who often sings at special occasions. Lillian Hayman portrayed the role from the show's origin in 1968 until 1974, and from 1978 continually through 1986.
Sadie is initially a maid in Llanfair, the Lord family manor. She eventually quits to take charge of Llanview Hospital's housekeeping department. She lives across the hall from her good friend Anna Wolek. Sadie is a widow and mentions her daughter Clara, whom she says is "lost to her." A mystery woman named Carla Benari shows up in town, presumably an Italian American woman who becomes Dr. Jim Craig's secretary and dates African American Dr. Price Trainor. Many hospital staffers are shocked at the prospect of a white woman dating a black man. A few months later, it is revealed that Carla Benari is Clara Gray, Sadie's daughter, a lighter-skinned African American woman passing as white. Sadie is furious that her daughter would deny her heritage, but they eventually reconcile, and Clara embraces her roots, taking back her surname "Gray."
