Biography

Most 1970s-era couch potatoes first saw lissome leading lady Christine Belford when she portrayed insurance investigator Carlie Kirkland during the second season (1973-74) of the George Peppard TV series Banacek. It would not be the last time that Christine would appear as a series regular: In chronological order, she played Aunt Emily in Married: The First Year (1979); Jackie Willow, wife of Richard Masur in Empire (1984); and sheriff Maggie Randall on Outlaws (1987). She also co-hosted (with Steve Edwards) the 1983 daytime-magazine series Personal & Confidential. Christine Belford's feature-length films include Pocket Money (1972), The Groundstar Conspiracy (1972), and the made-for-TV Kenny Rogers as the Gambler (1980). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
