She is a television actress most known for her role as Officer Eve Whitfield on the late '60s, early '70s television crime-drama classic "Ironside." Anderson's TV career began in 1966, at 21, when she made appearances on three different shows, one of them the legendary sci-fi series "Star Trek." In 1967, she had a single-episode part on the successful, if violent, detective series "Mannix," before landing her career-making role that same year, on "Ironside."
