Born: November 23, 1959 in Santa Monica, California, USA
Died: November 4, 1982 (age 22) in Los Angeles, California, USA

Murdered by her ex-boyfriend, John Thomas Sweeney, just nineteen days before her 23rd birthday.

She was cast as Robin Maxwell in V (1983) and filmed several scenes before she was murdered. After her death, Blair Tefkin was cast in the role. The only footage of her which remains in the miniseries is a shot of her back in the scene in which the Maxwells observe the arrival of the Los Angeles mothership. The miniseries was dedicated to her memory.
