As a child, Pamelyn Ferdin didn’t just watch some of the most beloved cartoons and television shows of all times; she lived them. Pamelyn was the most ubiquitous child/teen actress throughout the 1970’s; she was the voice of Lucy Van Pelt in the classic “Peanuts” specials and the voice of Fern in the animated theatrical version of Hanna-Barbera’s “Charlotte’s Web”, starring Debbie Reynolds and Paul Lynde.
Her television work includes guest starring roles on the most popular shows of the “pop” culture including Felix Unger’s daughter Edna on “The Odd Couple,” Jan Brady’s best friend on “The Brady Bunch”, and a famous episode of “Star Trek” where she battled Captain Kirk, “The Children Shall Lead”.
Pamelyn co-starred in films such as “The Beguiled,” starring Clint Eastwood and Geraldine Page, “The Mephisto Waltz,” starring Alan Alda, and “Happy Birthday Wanda June,” with Rod Steiger. She has appeared in too many commercials to count.
Pamelyn continues to be recognized by the public for the great roles she has played and encouraged to return to the entertainment industry not only from peers but younger viewers who have seen her in re-runs of these pop culture shows on television, DVD and the web.
