Brown-haired, apple-cheeked child actress and teenage player, a member of an acting family whose better-known brother Kevin died last year. After a debut in Apache Drums (1951), she kept busy throughout the 1950s: Wait Til the Sun Shines, Nellie (1952), Plymouth Adventure (1952), Hans Christian Andersen (1952), Young Bess (1953), The Robe (1953), Tanganyika (1954), Violent Saturday (1955), Band of Angels (1957) and Moochie of the Little League (1959). In 1957, she began work on what would prove to be more than 150 episodes of the popular TV series Bachelor Father. As a young woman, she made Gidget Goes to Rome (1963) and The Girls on the Beach (1965), before leaving acting to become stage manager with a dance company.
