Pam Dawber is returning to a NEW MORK AND MINDY!
After over 20 years, it has been confirmed that Pam Dawber will return to a whole new season of Mork and Mindy. Some fans are excited. Some are doubtful of whether the new show will be as successful as the last.
I mean, I'm all for a old school comeback and all. And Paw Dawber still looks great. But still, isn't she a bit... TOO OLD?
Actress Pam Dawber grew up in a suburb of Detroit. Her career began to take off when a friend who was going to New York suggested that Pam accompany her and bring along her modeling portfolio to show various New York modeling agents. A pretty girl, Pam had done some modeling in Detroit where she was attending Oakland Community College, and she had also worked as a model and singer in several auto trade shows. One of the top modeling agencies in New York signed Pam to an exclusive contract, and she was soon being seen in magazine advertisements and on TV commercials but Pamela was more interested in acting than in modeling. She began studying voice and acting. A leading role in a stock production of a musical comedy called "Sweet Adeline" at the Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam, Connecticut, led to her being auditioned for a major role on a new TV series called "Tabitha" (1977). To her disappointment, Pam did not get the part, but she did get an important role in the Robert Altman film A Wedding (1978) and, shortly after, signed an exclusive contract with ABC-TV. ABC cast Pam as the female lead in "Mork & Mindy" (1978) and her star has been riding high ever since. Pam returned to the stage and appeared in a revival of the musical "My Fair Lady", playing Eliza Doolittle. Her hobbies are canoeing, cooking, horseback riding and swimming.
