|Kami Cotler was born in
Long Beach, California on June 17, 1965. She appeared in The
Homecoming as Elizabeth, the youngest Walton, then went on to
reprise her role in the subsequent series of The Waltons. After
The Homecoming, Kami appeared a movie, The Heist, then in

|Trivia buffs of The
Waltons will know that on several occasions, Kami's real life brother,
Jeff Cotler, joined her on the set of The Waltons and appeared as a
guest actor in the show.
To my knowledge Kami did not continue to
pursue her show business career after The Waltons left our screens.
She did, however, go on to train as an elementary school teacher. I am
told that when she visited the Waltons Mountain Museum she fell in
love with this area so much that she decided to settle nearby.
During 1997, Kami and her husband became
parents, welcoming their little son Cotton into their family.
