Linda Henning

The daughter of veteran writer and TV producer Paul Henning and Ruth Henning, Linda originally studied to be a dancer before going into acting. After appearing in an uncredited role as one of the dancers in Bye Bye Birdie (1963), she landed the role of Betty Jo on Petticoat Junction (1963), on which she remained for its entire seven-year run — and for which she is perhaps most famous. Following its cancellation, Linda made numerous appearances on episodic TV and game shows and performed in stage plays and musicals all across the U.S. Since the 1980’s Ms. Henning has been a member of the California Artists Radio Theatre (CART) repertory troupe. Her most recent credits include Sliders (1995), in which she has appeared in the recurring role of Mrs. Mallory.
