She gained popularity for performing nurse Gloria “Ripples” Brancusi for the CBS series Trapper John, M.D., and made an appearance on the cleaning soap Guiding Light and Another Globe. Her perhaps most obviously early part was as Miriam in Summer season of ’42. She was mistakenly interviewed in the ’90s from the English press, who mistook her for Melanie Griffith. She wedded Walter Danley in 1980. She co-starred like a heroic trip attendant alongside Charlton Heston in the catastrophe movie Airport terminal 1975.
