Born 1950 in Los Angeles, American actress and author Pamela Hensley worked mostly in television and had only eight credits in feature films. Her debut was in the dramedy There Was a Crooked Man… before appearing in a number of Universal television productions as a contract player in the 1970s. She played Janet Blake during the last season of Marcus Welby, M.D.. This was followed by a half season’s work as an investigator on Kingston: Confidential.
