My first professional acting job was in 1967 where I "ponied" and "jerked" alongside Bugs Bunny in a Kool-Aid commerical called "Kool-Aid A Go Go!" (I'm the curly-haired tike in the mini-skirt and short boots). I made a few more commercials as a child, Armour hot dogs, Life cereal, along with episodes of the TV series Family Affair,(I met "Mr. French" and "Buffy"!), and Green Acres, (I met Lisa! And Oliver! And Arnold the Pig!). I took a brief hiatus from ages 15-18 and then returned to show business. By 19 I had three national commercials on the air, had played a lead role in my first film, the cult classic Just Before Dawn, and was cast in a show called Falcon Crest that was destined to become an iconic 80s primetime soap. In my long career I've had the good fortune to work with many highly respected actors including: Peter Falk, Rip Torn, Danny Aiello, Johnny Depp, Clint Eastwood, Sally Field, Calista Flockhart, Angela Lansbury, Jane Wyman, Anne Baxter, and Lana Turner. My numerous TV appearances include starring in my own show, Lady Blue, and recurring characters in St. Elsewhere, Chicago Hope, and others. A career highlight was being one of Johnny Carson's guests on The Tonight Show. Some favorite film credits are Tightrope with Clint Eastwood, Heartbreakers with Peter Coyote, and cult favorite Chopper Chicks In Zombie Town with Billy Bob Thorton. L.A. theater credits include Room Service at the Pasadena Playhouse, Detachments at the Tiffany, Shim Chong at the Getty Center, Hercules Furens at the Getty Villa, It's Just Sex and the Two Roads, and Wildfire at the Odysssey. Recent credits include guest-stars on Two and a Half Men, Franklin and Bash, and Jane the Virgin.
