Susan's Passion

Susan McCray“Does the world need another fragrance?” a good friend asked Susan McCray, the woman who was Michael Landon’s long-time casting director for his iconic shows.

“No,” she said with a smile. “But it needs this one.”

Susan McCray was just 8 years old when she began experimenting with perfumes. Her mother, Francesca from whom Susan inherited her keen sense of style and appreciation of scents would smile about how her daughter would one day launch a fragrance line. That would come later … after her daughter’s successful Hollywood career.

Susan worked closely with Michael Landon, serving as the casting director on his shows, including Little House on the Prairie, and Highway to Heaven, as well as other audience favorites: Hawaii 5-0, The High Chaparral, Father Murphy and numerous movies for television. McCray is now getting back to a childhood dream: Producing a fabulous fragrance line - Nightfall by Susan McCray.

Influenced by her Academy Award-winning composer father, Harry Sukman, her beautifully talented mother, Francesca Paley, and surrounded by the love of her friends, family and fans, Susan’s latest creation is the culmination of her sterling success story and a life-long dream come true.
