(written from a Production point of view)
She is best known to Ironside fans as the blonde policewoman, Eve Whitfield. She also played Mimi Davis in seven episodes of Mission: Impossible in 1972. One episode, entitled "Cocaine", reunited her with her Trek co-star William Shatner. That episode also featured Charles Napier. Anderson and John Colicos guest-starred in the pilot episode of the Desilu (and later Paramount) TV series Mannix, which costarred Joseph Campanella.
She worked steadily in made-for-TV movies, TV series, and TV guest roles through the late sixties and into the seventies. One of her TV movies was Visions... (also known as Visions of Death, 1972), with Monte Markham and Tim O'Connor. But her acting career was essentially over by 1978. She returned only a few times after that, the last time in ER in an episode entitled "Under the Influence" in 2007.
When she wasn't acting in the '80s and '90s, she worked frequently as a costume designer for a number of B-movies. While attending college, Anderson was voted Miss Memphis and came within a half a vote of being Miss Tennessee in the Miss America pageant before moving to Hollywood. In her first season on Ironside as officer Eve Whitfield, Anderson won an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a TV Series.
