Actress Michael Learned is best known for playing Olivia Walton on The  
Waltons ( CBS-TV from 1972 to 1981).She was billed as "Miss Michael
Learned" because she was relatively unknown at the time, and producers

six Emmy Awards and won three for her role on the show. She was also
nominated for four Golden Globe Awards.
