NOTES

The name "Mel" comes from Harris's childhood. Her sister was unable to say "Mary Ellen" and kept saying "Melon", a nickname which was shortened to "Mel".

"The camera loves her. You just don't catch her acting."--Ken Olin, Harris's TV husband on "thirtysomething" (quoted in TV GUIDE, January 23, 1988)

Tartly referring to the competition she encountered during her days as a model, the dark-haired, dark-eyed Harris mused, "Blonde-and-blue sells. It's like sliced white bread in America."--quoted in TV GUIDE, January 23, 1988
