The iconic "Olivia Walton" - six Emmy Nominations and three wins. That is what Michael Learned has to show for her work on the famous TV Show.
Due to her name, producers were always worried that viewers would be confused about Michaels gender. For six years her name would appear next to a "Miss" in the credits of The Waltons.
After her time on the Waltons, she went on to star in Nurse.
