KATY KURTZMAN WAS BORN IN SEPTEMBER OF 1965 IN WASHINGTON DC. SHE BEGAN HER CAREER AS A CHILD ACTRESS AND GOT HER FIRST BIG BREAK ON LIITLE HOUSE. SHE IS PROBABLY BEST REMEMBERED FOR HER ROLES AS HEIDI IN THE NEW ADVENTURES OF HEIDI AND LINDSAY BLAISDEL IN DYNASTY. HER MOST RECENT ACTING ROLE WAS IN 2004 WHEN SHE GUEST STARRED ON AN EPISODE OF STRONG MEDICINE, A TV SERIES. SHE HAS ACTED IN OVER 28 TITLES IN TELEVISION. HAWAII FIVE-0, FANTASY ISLAND, LOVE BOAT, TRAPPER JOHN MD, TO NAME A FEW. SHE WAS NOMINATED FOR THREE YOUNG ARTIST AWARDS IN 1982, 84 AND 86. SHE APPEARED WITH MELISSA SUE ANDERSON IN "VERY GOOD FRIENDS", AN ABC AFTERNOON SPECIAL IN 1977. SHE HAS ALSO PRODUCED, DIRECTED AND WRITTEN PROJECTS FOR TV.

SHE WAS IN TWO LITTLE HOUSE EPISODES...
I REMEMBER, I REMEMBER - YOUNG CAROLINE - 1978
THE MUSIC BOX - ANNA GILBERG - 1977



INTERVIEW WITH KATY KURTZMAN ON WORKING WITH MATTHEW LABYORTEAUX IN "I REMEMBER,I REMEMBER"

Mathew Labyorteaux was impressive as the young Charles and both of you had great chemistry. How was your working relationship with him? Do have any memories to share about this episode?

"We shot on location in Sonora, CA. It was cold, December. I had a mad, steaming, adolescent crush on Matt. I was wild about him. He for me, not so much. I tried my best to let him know how I felt, but I think I just freaked him out. He was unresponsive, too disinterested. He was a good friend though and Pat, Matt and I would hang out together for a while after the shoot. They lived only a few lights away from me. Pat was sweet and I think he liked me, but I was all for Matt and I could not figure out why he didn’t like me the same way I liked him.
In Sonora, Missy Gilbert came up right around Christmas time, after we had been shooting for a while. We were all staying in the same cheapish motel. There was a K-mart like place across the street and I went with Missy to buy a Christmas tree and decorations. She was so excited about that little tree that she couldn’t wait to get it back to her room before decorating it. We decorated that little tree right there in the parking lot and then walked it back to her room. She was always so fun, a really happy, energetic and optimistic young lady."

PostSubject: WILLIE AAMES   Wed May 02, 2012 10:00 am

Born on July 15th, 1960,in Newport Beach, California, Willie Aames attended Edison High School in Huntington Beach, California, and was in both the choir and the Madrigal Ensemble.

Aames began acting in the early 1970s as a child actor. In 1971, he originated the role of Leonard Unger, the son of Felix Unger (Tony Randall), on the ABC-TV series The Odd Couple, a part that was later played by Leif Garrett. The following year, he voiced the character of Jamie Boyle in the animated series Wait till Your Father Gets Home. Aames has guest-starred on various television series including The Waltons and Adam-12. In 1974, he portrayed a 12-year old Benjamin Franklin in the miniseries Benjamin Franklin. The next year, he co-starred in the series Swiss Family Robinson.

In 1977, he landed the role of Tommy Bradford in the dramedy Eight is Enough. During this period, he played in the band called “Willie Aames & Paradise”, where he was lead singer/guitarist. Formed while Aames was in junior high school, the group eventually landed a recording contract with CBS Custom Label. He also appeared in his first movie role in Scavenger Hunt during this time. After the series ended in 1981, Aames appeared in more film roles, including Zapped! opposite Scott Baio, and Paradise with Phoebe Cates.

Before portraying the role of Buddy Lembeck in Charles in Charge in 1984, Aames played the character of Robbie Hamlin on the ABC soap opera The Edge of Night. From 1983 to 1985, he was the voice of Hank on the cartoon Dungeons & Dragons. After the end of Charles in Charge in 1990, Aames hosted the game show The Krypton Factor.

From 1995 to 2004, Aames starred in a video series, and annual touring performances as the Christian superhero Bibleman. Initially reluctant to take the role, Aames states that he was dropped by the owners of the series. Although Aames directed and wrote for the Bibleman series, he does not have any stake in the ownership..

Aames struggled with drugs and alcohol during the 70's and early 80's and it was during this time that he became a born-again Christian and an ordained minister.

Aames has been married twice. From 1979 to 1984 he was married to Victoria Averbach, with whom he has a son, Christopher. Then on March, 15 1986 Aames married Maylo McCaslin. They later co-wrote the book Grace Is Enough. Divorcing in 2009, Aames and McCaslin have a daughter, Harleigh Jean Upton. Upton is also an actress, appearing in the series The Missy Files and The Public Life of Sissy Pike. Aames is credited with having written and directed both.

Since 2010, Aames has been working as a cruise director for Oceania Cruises.

PostSubject: RADAMES PERA   Wed May 02, 2012 7:26 pm

Radames Pera was born in New York City in 1960. He moved to Hollywood with his mother in 1963 so she could pursue her acting career (their first apartment was around the corner from Grauman's Chinese Theater on Orange Ave.). In 1967 Radames was discovered by director Daniel Mann and cast as Stavros, the dying son of Anthony Quinn and Irene Papas, in A Dream of Kings (1969). His mother found him an agent and he ended up guest-starring in several TV shows in the late 1960s and 1970s. For the first few years of his career he tended to be cast in the roles of sensitive yet troubled young men. This reputation led to his landing the co-starring role of the Shaolin monk Grasshopper in the seminal TV series "Kung Fu" (1972) and later as the writer/poet John Jr. (and fiancé of Mary Ingalls) in "Little House on the Prairie" (1974).

In the summer of 1978 Radames began a three-year intensive study of acting and directing with Stella Adler, first in L.A. and then in New York City. While in New York he played Alan Bates' estranged son in the British feature Very Like a Whale (1981) (TV).

After returning to L.A. in 1981 he discovered a painful reality that so many child actors face: now that he was no longer a juvenile, "the business" had no further need for him. His last feature film role was with Charlie Sheen, Patrick Swayze and Lea Thompson as Russian radar tracking Sgt. Stepan Gorsky in John Milius' Red Dawn (1984). That same year he wed his wife, Marsha Mann. His last TV role was as a Nazi vigilante youth-gang leader in "The New Mike Hammer" (1984) opposite Stacy Keach in 1986.

In 1988 he started his own business designing and installing home theater and residential sound systems in Los Angeles. In 1993 he moved his business and his family to Portland, Oregon, but returned to Southern California (Ventura) in 2002. Since November of 2004 he has been a resident of Austin, Texas, with his own business (a-v-environments.com) and is pursuing film writing and directing.

HE WAS IN EIGHT EPISODES OF LITTLE HOUSE AS JOHN SANDERSON/JOHN SANDERSON EDWARDS.

PostSubject: John Dukakis   Thu May 03, 2012 10:46 am

John Dukakis , born in California in June of 1958, and raised in the Boston area, has had a rich and varied career in the political and entertainment businesses.

While attending Brown University in the mid-70s, the aspiring actor was cast in Universal's sequel to Jaws (1975), Jaws 2 (1978). He relocated to Hollywood and continued to work as an actor for the next 6 years. He had substantial roles in the films, Making Love (1982), Delusion (1981) and Split Image (1982), and on television in "Family Ties" (1982), "Little House on the Prairie" (1974), "Taxi" (1978) and the Jim Jones docudrama, Guyana Tragedy: The Story of Jim Jones (1980) (TV). He finished his career in New York working on the Broadway and off-Broadway stage.

After retiring from acting, he segued to a job in Washington, D.C. as a legislative assistant to U.S. Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) in the Senator's first 2 years in office. In 1987, John's step-father, then-Gov. Michael Dukakis (D-MA), announced his intention to run for President of the United States. John left Washington and moved to Atlanta to run the Southern campaign for the months prior to the Super Tuesday primaries. Later, as the National Political Director, he campaigned all over the country on behalf of the Dukakis-Bentsen ticket. With the 1988 campaign over, John began work with an attorney in Boston named Bob Woolf, who had built a significant international practice representing professional athletes. John ran the music business management department and spent most of his time on a developing local act: New Kids on the Block. Within several years, the company grew and he was sent to Los Angeles to open an office there with an emphasis on working with other established and developing acts. When he left the company in 1992, the company was also working with Boys II Men and 'Marky Mark & the Funky Bunch'.

He is the Nephew of actress Olympia Dukakis and adoptive son of Michael Dukakis, former governor of Massachusetts and the democratic candidate for President in 1988. .

He appeared in one Little House episode, “A New Beginning” in 1980 as Tim Mahoney, the ruffian who stole from the Garveys and beat up Andy.

PostSubject: BRIAN PART   Thu May 03, 2012 12:00 pm

Brian Part, born in 1962, in Los Angeles, Ca., first developed an interest in acting at the age of five. Right before Part's father died, he made his wife promise that their son could become an actor. Part told his dad that he would make his name famous.
Part's first acting job was in an episode of Lucas Tanner called "Collison" in 1975. Later that year, he was in an episode of ABC Afterschool Special and also made a guest appearance on The Waltons. From 1975 to 1977, Part acted in twenty-one episodes of Little House on the Prairie as Carl Sanderson Edwards, the first of which was "Remember Me" - Part 1 where Julia Sanderson (Patricia Neal) a widow with three children (of which Part was the middle) learns that she is going to die and needs to find a home for her children. In the continuation of the episode, Part and his television siblings, Radames Pera and Kyle Richards are adopted by the recently married Mr. and Mrs. Edwards, played by Victor French and Bonnie Bartlett.
In 1976, Part played Samuel in Birch Interval. After Little House he was in Return from Witch Mountain in 1978 and an episode of Project UFO in 1979. During the early eighties, Part guest starred on such shows as Eight Is Enough and Knots Landing as well as appearing in Max Dugan Returns in 1983.
Part also landed commercials for Dawn dishwashing liquid and Shasta Cola. His stage work includes Disperate Hours alongside Anthony Caruso and a lead part in the musical Forrest Lights with his wife Melody Part.
He has now turned his career towards music, performing in over ten places with bands such as Warrant and Vixon, as well as musicians Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart. With his wife, Melody Part, Brian has recorded many CD's.

Part describes his Little House adventure as "the most wonderful experience anyone could ever have." He also says that he was very close to many of the cast members and that both Michael Landon and Victor French his television dad, were father figures for him, having lost his own dad as a child. Brian was also close to the rest of his on-screen family, Bonnie Bartlett, Radames Pera, and Kyle Richards.

PostSubject: ERIC OLSON   Thu May 03, 2012 5:37 pm

Eric Olson was born in November of 1962 in Santa Monica,Ca. He began his acting career in 1971 when he appeared on Nanny and the Professor. He appeared on Gunsmoke, Swiss Family Robinson, Family, and Eight is Enough to name a few. He was in 3 movies, Enemy of The State, Viva Knievel and Flood. He made two short films in 2010.

In my opinion, he gave one of the most touching performances on Little House, when, as Elmer Dobkins, in "The Election", he gave a speech on how people should be treated regardless of their station in life.

As a side note, this episode was Michael Landon Jr.'s one and only performance on Little House. He nominated Elmer for class president.
