Life and career
Chapman was born in Greenville, South Carolina. She is the daughter of retired United States Air Force general Leland C. Shepard Jr.. Her older sister Patty Shepard (born 1945) also worked as an actress. She debuted at the age of 16 in the Spaghetti Western Sette donne per i MacGregor. In 1977 she tested for the role of Pam Ewing on CBS primetime soap opera, Dallas.

Chapman has appeared on several daytime dramas since the mid-1970s. Her first soap role was scheming Natalie Bannon (one of Tom Hughes' wives) on As the World Turns from 1975-1978. A four-month stint as the mysterious Charlotte Greer on Ryan's Hope in 1983 brought her critical acclaim. Her role had her character as part of a revenge plot against the Ryan family after lying to the press that she was Frank Ryan's ex-wife. She joined the cast of General Hospital the following year as the devious Ginny Blake who was the biological mother of Mike Webber, adopted by Rick and Lesley. After Lesley's "death", Rick and Ginny married in an attempt to share custody and fell in love after Ginny was found to be the killer of D.L. Brock. After that stint ended, she had a brief role on One Life to Live as Sandra Montaigne, a con-artist out to scam ex-boyfriend Jonathan Russell. She was the third former General Hospital actress to play the role of Anjelica Devereaux Curtis on Days of Our Lives, playing that part from 1989-1990 and briefly in 1991.

She made her first appearance on The Young and the Restless after that, briefly subbing for Jess Walton as Jill Abbott. She joined the cast of The Young and the Restless full-time in January 2005, replacing Joan Van Ark in the contract role of Gloria Fisher. In March 2011, it was announced that Chapman had been taken off her contract and bumped to recurring. In October 2014, it was announced that she would make a guest appearance as Gloria on The Bold and the Beautiful. Although she made a few more appearances on The Young and the Restless into early 2015, she later indicated on numerous sources, including her Facebook fan page, that she believed that she had made her final appearance on Y&R, and that she didn't believe the show would be using the character any longer. However, in December 2016, she made a triumphant return as the character of Gloria was once again thrust into the middle of a front burner storyline.

Chapman guest starred on the final episode of Galactica 1980. She appeared in two episodes of Magnum, P.I. and three episodes of Murder, She Wrote. Her most recent film role was the mother of Judy (Parker Posey) in the 2002 romantic comedy, The Sweetest Thing.
