|Judy Norton was born in
Santa Monica, California, on January 29, 1958. She began acting
as Mary Ellen Walton in 1971 with the movie The Homecoming and
continued in this role when it was decided to continue on with
the series of The Waltons.
|During the run
of the show, Judy Norton married, and until the end of the
series, was billed as Judy Norton-Taylor. In 1979 she made a
television movie called Valentine. She continued her role as
Mary Ellen Walton, throughout the run of the series, as well as
appearing in the special Waltons movies, made after the series
ended. During the later Waltons movies, however, she has
reverted to using her original name of Judy Norton, having
dropped the Taylor part.
Recently Judy has also filmed a mini
series called Lost Daughter, as well as completing a guest spot
on Millenium so life is obviously very full and busy for her.
