Susan Sennett

Cute, charming, and spunky blonde Susan Sennett was born on February 29, 1952 in Los Angeles, California. She grew up in the San Fernando Valley and attended a charm school on Ventura Boulevard. Sennett was a member of the arts group, Visual Girls, for two years, worked at the teenage fair, and later studied acting with Stella Adler. Susan gave a strong and touching performance as sweet and fragile teen innocent, “Candy”, in the brutal and controversial exploitation thriller, The Candy Snatchers (1973), and contributed a spirited portrayal as Angie Dickinson’s shameless daughter, “Billy Jean”, in the fun and sexy Depression-era action cult favorite, Big Bad Mama (1974). She had a recurring role as perky college student “Susie Hamilton”, in the short-lived sitcom, Ozzie’s Girls (1973). Moreover, Sennett made guest appearances on episodes of such TV shows as The Rookies (1972), Love, American Style (1969), Room 222 (1969) and Lucas Tanner (1974). Susan voluntarily quit acting in the mid-1970’s, because she wasn’t comfortable doing racy material (she reportedly walked out of the audition for the pilot for the risqué sitcom, Three’s Company (1976)). She married noted musician, Graham Nash, of Crosby Stills & Nash fame, on May 4, 1977 and has had three children with Nash, who include writer/actor/director Jackson Nash. Sennett now builds and designs houses and does work with the Children’s Storybook Theatre of Hawaii.
