Wow. Not a lot of actresses get hotter with age but it’s working for Nancy McKeon. She played Jo, the tomboy on The Facts of Life, a 1980’s sitcom that ran for an impressive 9 seasons. Nancy was known for her ability to cry on demand on the set and she was dubbed “faucet face” by her co-stars. Nice. In 1995 Nancy starred in her own show “Can’t Hurry Love” which lasted one season. Apparently you can’t hurry ratings either. She starred in another sitcom, The Division from 2001 – 2004. During the 1980s and 1990s Nancy starred in a variety of TV movies, including A Cry for Help: The Tracey Thurman Story. To see Nancy in a scene from the movie click here.
During the 1980s she dated Michael J. Fox. Bet she wishes she’d hung in there but of course she couldn’t see into the future about his movie and financial successes (pun). She married Marc Andrus in 2003 and has had two daughters with the dude (whoever he is). Since then, poof! Nancy has virtually disappeared from television. At least she’s not a drug addict or drunk, I’ll give her that. To see Nancy McKeon Biography – 1/5 click here.
