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
did not want viewers confused about her gender. She was nominated for
six Emmy Awards and won three for her role on the show. She was also
nominated for four Golden Globe Awards.

    I have seen every episode of The Waltons. The show is utterly charming, but its nothing without Livie, John and John Boy – all are exceptional actors. I read Ms learned went to an Acting School in Tring – perhaps one day you might return to the English stage? You are inspiring in every way. Val, 4 April, 2013

    Have just recently started watching The Waltons everyday. You are the clay of that family. Was sorry to recently here of Ralph Waite’s passing. he certainly wasn’t sore on the eyes.
    You’re a lovely woman and moving actor.
    I’ve noticed recently on some of the episodes they took the Miss off the intro.
    John Boy, Richard Thomas was a judge when I was in college for the Irene Ryan Scholarship Award. I won locally and went on to the Kennedy Center where he was also there representing the award program. Wow, did he have the bluest eyes and kindest nature.
    Now I’m in a Nursing Home and watching your series everyday. Never watched it when it ran in prime time.
    I wish life was like it was potrayed then. Funny.
    I hope you are well…you will always be beautiful in my eyes.
