Lynda Day George - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

One would be pressed to locate an actress who made more television guest appearances than Lynda Day George. The lovely Texan with the Barbie Doll build lent her numerous talents to many of America’s popular shows during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Chances are, if you turned on the boob tube during any of those decades, you saw Lynda Day acting beside the era’s top talents. Although not a household name, Lynda achieved notoriety when she landed her big break in the hit series MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE which garnered the stellar thespian name recognition. Lynda worked steadily until the end of the 1980s in many genres but is best known today as Lisa Casey–her MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE role.

In 1977 Lynda starred in the tv mini-series ROOTS and co-starred in the made-for-tv mystery MURDER AT THE WORLD SERIES. But 1977 was a new beginning of sorts for Lynda. She began working on B-pictures, many with husband Christopher, that boasted flimsy plots, anti-capitalist themes and the most inane dialogue this side of the TWILIGHT movies. DAY OF THE ANIMALS was the first of this such fare and Lynda shines in this hokum as Terry Marsh, a beauty terrorized by animals gone wild. She followed up that film with another heavyhanded message flick ANTS, which blasts big corporations every two minutes. The movie, one of the worst films ever made, stars Lynda as a sweet-as-pie bed and breakfast manager whose building is infested with ants, which have, of course, been exposed to chemicals which has turned them into ravenous, ill-tempered little nuisances. Although Miss Day George was clearly a better actress than this trash, she began to make a name for herself in low-budget fright flicks.
