The 72-year-old stage and film actress, Kathy Garver, rose to fame when she was cast in the 1960's show "Family Affair." Garver shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon, despite her age.

Garver released a memoir titled "Surviving Cissy: My Family Affair of Life in Hollywood" in September 2015. In it, she discusses her multidimensional career as both an actress and author.

The actress made great strides in her life and career as she grew up from the teenage Cissy Patterson-Davis, a fan-favorite from "Family Affair."

Before landing the role that shaped her career, Garver played a child slave in the 1956 film "The Ten Commandments." She also appeared in several television shows between 1952 and 1966 before she stepped into Cissy's shoes.

Her acting spans more than six decades in total, and she landed her first role in "The Red Skelton Hour" when she was just seven years old. Garver also pursued voice-over acting and, more recently in her life, producing as well.

She voiced the characters Angelica Jones, Storm, and Firestar in the animated "Spider-Man" from the early 1980's. Children's entertainment is Garver's passion.

She provided the voices for "The New Yogi Bear Show" and "Jojo's Bizarre Adventure," as well as author children's audiobooks. Garver joked that her schedule has seemed to get busier the older she gets

Garver recently moved her focus to producing. She is an associate producer on "Once In A Lifetime" and "The Executive."

She is also working on "Medusa" and "Sold." Both are currently in pre-production. She appeared in "Helen's Last Love" in 2017.

Garver has a son, Reid, and lives in California with her husband, David Travis. With writing, acting, and producing under her belt, Hollywood hasn't seen the last of Kathy Garver yet
