On January 17, 2011, I wrote about Kristin Harmon Nelson and her years on The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. I also wrote about her life as an artist in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The response I have received to that posting has been overwhelming. It was viewed by far more people than anything else I have written on TV Banter. I had no idea there was so much interest in Kris. It appears that many readers would like to see more current photos of her. If that includes you, click on the link below to read a 2008 interview (including more recent pictures) with Kris Harmon Nelson on santafe.com
In my blog entry of January 17, I failed to mention a couple of noteworthy items about Kris Harmon Nelson.
* In 1975, Kris played the role of Jean Reed, the wife of Officer Jim Reed (Kent McCord) in four episodes of the police series Adam-12.
* I also neglected to mention that in addition to her famous brother Mark Harmon, Kristin has a younger sister, actress Kelly Harmon. Kelly was born in Los Angeles County, California on November 9, 1948 and is 62 years old. At 59, brother Mark is the baby of the family.
In the 1980s, Kelly Harmon made appearances on such television series as Barnaby Jones (1980), The Incredible Hulk (1980), Nero Wolfe (1981) and T.J. Hooker (1982). In 1981, she played the role of Jane Lewis on the popular daytime soap opera The Young and the Restless. In the 1980s and 1990s, Kelly Harmon appeared in television commercials for Tic-Tac and was known as the Tic-Tac girl. To view videos of her Tic Tac ads, click on the link below.
Kelly has the distinction of being the second of the four wives of automobile magnate, John DeLorean. They married on May 31, 1969 and divorced in 1972. DeLorean, born January 6, 1925, was much older than Kelly. The car mogul died at the age of 80 in 2005. Since 2002, Kelly Harmon has been an artist and interior designer in Los Angeles.
