Merry Anders Facts
She had a daughter who attended Los Angeles Valley College in the 1970s. Apparently trying to follow in her mother's footsteps, the daughter appeared in college plays, for example, "A Midsummer's Night Dream," but without much acclaim or, as far as is known, without any professional appearances later.

She continued acting in the 1970s by registering for at least one class at Los Angeles Valley College each year in order to appear in a college play. Among her credits was "The Glass Menagerie", and playing her daughter was the soon-to-be-famous TV actress Christopher Norris.

Although she is actually a blonde, Jack Webb insisted that she wear a brunette wig during her appearances on the second "Dragnet 1967" (1967) series (1967-70) on the grounds that it made her look more serious.
