My first professional acting job was in 1967. I "ponied" and "jerked" alongside Bugs Bunny in a Kool-Aid commerical called "Kool-Aid A Go Go!" (I'm the curly-haired tyke in the mini-skirt and short boots). I made a few more commercials as a child: Armour hot dogs, Life cereal, episodes of the TV series Family Affair and Green Acres. By 19 I had three national commercials on the air, had played a lead role in the cult classic Just Before Dawn, and was cast in Falcon Crest, a show that was destined to become an iconic 80s primetime soap.
Throughout my 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 TV appearances include starring in my own show, Lady Blue, and playing 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 Thornton. 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 Two and a Half Men, Franklin and Bash, and Jane the Virgin.
