Angela Cartwright was born in England, but her family relocated to Los Angeles, California when she was three years old. She grew up with her older sister, Veronica Cartwright, also a well-known actress. At the age of three, Angela began to work as a child fashion model, appearing in a number of commercials, as well as on magazines covers.

Her professional acting career began in 1956, when she made her debut appearance in the film “Somebody Up There Likes Me”, landing the role of Paul Newman’s character’s daughter, which was followed by the role as Caroline in “Something Of Value” (1957), starring alongside Sidney Poitier and Rock Hudson. In the same year, she was selected for the role of Linda Williams in the hit TV series “Make Room For Daddy”, directed by Danny Thomas, which ran for seven years, and parallel with that, she featured in such titles as “Shirley Temple’s Storybook” (1960), “Lad: A Dog” (1962), etc. All of these appearances added a considerable amount to Angela’s net worth.

The 1965 year was one of her greatest, as she reprised the role of Linda Williams in the film “Danny Thomas Reunion Special”, and portrayed Brigitta Von Trapp in the film version of “The Sound Of Music”, alongside Christopher Plummer and Julie Andrews, and directed by Robert Wise and won five Academy Awards. In the same year, Angela also began to appear as Penny Robinson in the TV series “Lost In Space” (1965-1968), increasing her net worth by a large margin.

Most recently, she lent her voice to Miss Cow in the TV film “Elf Sparkle And The Special Red Dress” in 2010. Her net worth was certainly rising.

Apart from her career in the film industry, Angela is also known as an author of several books, such as “My Book: A Child’s First Journal”, “Mixed Emulsions: Altered Art Techniques For Photographic Imagery”, “Styling The Stars: Lost Treasures From The Twentieth Century Fox Archive”, among others, all of which increased a lot her wealth.

  • I loved having “Debbie the Bloop” (Judy the Chimpanzee), as my co-star, but she didn’t like the hat with ears that she had to wear and sometimes it made her cranky.
  • [on the death of Danny Thomas]: He was quite a character, lot of people will remember him.
  • [Of Danny Thomas]: He was kind of like my second-family. I worked everyday with them and you know I had my own family that I went home to, but he was so totally different than my family because Danny was very kind of loud and had this sense of humor. Of course, I was given lines to say that I would never dream saying in my own home. It was kind of precocious Linda who could get away with zingers. We were close, when you work together as a group like that [when you’re together], we did 26 shows, every season, you have a relationship. Danny was very inspirational to me, he taught me all the ins and out of comedy timing, listening to the audience, we shoot it live every Thursday night.
  • [When thought if Danny Thomas would play second-fiddle to other actors who later played the role of TV dads, years after him, such as: Chuck Connors, Bill Bixby and Michael Landon]: I don’t think so, I don’t think Danny was really thinking about anybody else’s series, at the time. I don’t know if he reflected on just how much of the big snowball he started in family television. We shot “The Danny Thomas Show” at Desilu Studios, which was where Lucille Ball was doing I Love Lucy (1951), which of course is iconic. We had a lot of people on our show with over spin-offs, into their own series: It was Danny Thomas and Sheldon Leonard [that had a production company together] and we had on our show. Andy Griffith; and that was the spin-off to Mayberry. Andy was the sheriff that arrested Danny when he went [and I’d forgotten what he’d done, he’d done something in this little town of Mayberry, and so, he was arrested]. Let’s see, The Joey Bishop Show (1961) was a spin-off from an episode that Joey Bishop was in. There was Bill Bixby, but I think Bill Bixby just became a star playing the grocery guy on our show, I think he was picked up for some series, but there were a lot of spin-offs in 2 different comedy shows, and comedy was really needed at that time. The 1/2 hr. sitcom that was just your whole family could sit down and watch, it was really enjoyable though, Danny had a big part in that in the beginning of [what I like to call] instead of old TV classics.
  • [on her on- and off-screen chemistry with Danny Thomas, who played Danny Williams]: Working with Danny Thomas was truly an adventure every week. Danny didn’t always say the words as they appeared in the script. I learned more by osmosis than by sitting down together [with him]. He was a force to be reckoned with: an explorer of television. He was very loud and gregarious, but he always listened to me, too. He let me use the names of my real friends in the show: he wanted it to be real for me.’
  • I was never one to seek out the spotlight. I am kind of a private person, so I don’t miss that part of show business at all. Looking back on my career in television and making a movie like The Sound of Music (1965) from an adult point of view, it actually seems kind of unreal. I was involved in shows that people grew up with – that hold memories for them – and it’s a cool feeling.
  • [When responded if people would best remember her, as either the actress or the artist]: I hope they’ll remember a character I played that touched people’s lives in a positive way. I hope that through my work, artists will take some chances, break some rules, and make art that comes from inside of them. I would like to be remembered as a kind person, a great Mom, and a bit unruly – in a good way!
  • [on encouraging the parents of their own children to be child stars]: Rejection is a big part of show business. It can be tough on anyone who doesn’t have fairly good self-esteem. Especially kids, as they try to discover who they are. When I was a young kid, I thought everyone my age went to work everyday and was on television [I started when I was 3]. As I got older, I never considered that tons of people were watching me on television every week. I give a nod to my parents for keeping me as normal as I could be in an un-normal adult world. My parents kept me in check. I had to make my bed, set the table, and do my chores every day but those things were balanced with getting to laugh and be a kid, too.
  • Photography has been a passion of mine since I was 15. After my kids were born I found myself incorporating my photography into different art endeavors and from there it just blossomed. I have always had to have an outlet for my creativity and when my life became more about raising my family than the bright lights of show business exploring my photo art was a great outlet for me. My shadow in my art is one way I trace who I was and where I have been. My shadow and I have been on a journey for quite a while now!
