Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Likable platinum blonde who made a name for herself as the vivacious bombshell opposite Mickey Rooney in the Broadway musical revue "Sugar Babies" (1979). A former child performer who made her film debut as Bo Peep in "Babes in Toyland" (1961) and was featured as the young June Havoc ("Dainty June") in the 1962 film musical "Gypsy", Jillian starred on the TV series "It's a Living" (1980-82; 1985-86, as "Making a Living") and "Jennifer Slept Here" (1983-84). She played sexual pioneer and comedienne "Mae West" in a 1982 TV film biography and portrayed herself in the autobiographical "The Ann Jillian Story" (1988), which dealt frankly with her battle against breast cancer.
