She first started her career with her recurring part as “Rocket” in the 1966 show “The Secret Storm.” Her film debut was in 1967 with “The Incident.” Both of these were significant hits and announced her to the world.

She co-starred in the film with Clint Eastwood playing his character’s girlfriend. She played in various big-hitting T.V. shows including “The Six Million Dollar Men,” “Hawaii Five-O,” “The F.B.I.,” “Quincy.” But she got tired of playing the ‘damsel-in-distress’ role in all of her works. So, she played the ground-breaking role as Abby in “Knots Landing.” Abby was one of the first female villains in Hollywood.
But, it was not to last as she felt the writers stopped making Abby bold and was making her “too soft.” So, she left after nine years. After that, she concentrated on just T.V. movies, “The World’s Oldest Living Bridesmaid,” “Runaway Father,” “In My Daughter’s Name,” “My Name Is Kate.”
She returned to “Knots Landing” for the last time for two spin-offs. She made recent movies like “Love is a Four-Letter Word,” “Ladies of the House,” “Nip/Tuck” and “The Beauty and the Beast Christmas” and also shows like “General Hospital.” Most recently, she acted in the movie “Tale of the Wet Dog,” which released in 2020 as Mrs. Cardwell.
