Known around the world as IMF agent Lisa Casey on Mission: Impossible, Lynda Day George began her career as a model in New York doing magazines, TV ads and catalogs. She met actor Christopher George around 1965 during a photo shoot. Before long, the two of them starred together in The Gentle Rain, a feature film from 1966 that also launched Lynda’s career as a screen actress. Lynda went on to appear in just about every major TV show, miniseries, or TV-movie over the next three decades, including Route 66, Mannix, Bonanza, It Takes a Thief, The Green Hornet, Roots, Rich Man, Poor Man, Wonder Woman, The Magician, and Fantasy Island, as well as such films as Chisum, plus many of the shows produced by Quinn Martin, including The Fugitive, The Invaders, Barnaby Jones, and The F.B.I. Lynda then joined the cast of Mission in 1971, earning Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for her work on that series.
While Mission: Impossible is the show for which Lynda is best remembered, The Gentle Rain was the film that changed her life. Lynda not only fell in love with Christopher George while shooting that picture, they eventually married each other and worked together many times on screen until Christopher’s untimely death in 1983.
Lynda Day George is currently working on a memoir. We’ll ask her about that, plus she’ll share a few memories about her film and TV career, when she joins us in our second hour.
Also this week: We will pay tribute to Buck Henry, the iconic writer, director, and satirist who co-created Get Smart, co-wrote the screenplay for The Graduate, and was a steady presence during the early years of Saturday Night Live; and Edd “Kookie” Byrnes, the iconic star of 77 Sunset Strip was also arguably TV’s first teenage heartthrob. Plus: Greg Ehrbar’s DVD report and Tony Figueroa and Donna Allen with This Week in TV History.
