KATHY GARVER is most fondly remembered for her starring role as “Cissy” in the long-running CBS international television hit, “Family Affair,” but she has also garnered critical acclaim in movies, stage, radio, voice-over animation, and audio book narration.

Hollywood’s legendary Cecil B. DeMille was one of the first to recognize Kathy’s distinct talents. Originally hired for a small part in the epic motion picture, “The Ten Commandments,” the great director had special scenes written into the movie to highlight the little girl. This followed her first film, “The Night of the Hunter,” directed by Academy Award winner Charles Laughton.

Ms. Garver was a freshman majoring in speech at UCLA when she was tested for a television series entitled, “Family Affair.” Kathy, deemed “perfect” to star as “Cissy” with Brian Keith as “Uncle Bill” and Sebastian Cabot as “Mr. French,” performed for five years in one of the warmest and most enduring series of the 1960’s and 70’s.

Today Kathy Garver is an accomplished and versatile actress. Having served on the board of the Young People’s Committee of the Screen Actors Guild and as a volunteer for Book Pals, Kathy has used her experience to help guide new actors in the business. She is also
involved in such charities as Child Help (which aids abused children), Rose Resnick Light House for the Blind, and Make a Wish Foundation.
