Michael Learned played Olivia Walton on the television series, The Waltons for seven of its nine-year run. The show is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Michael’s career has spanned into stage productions on Broadway and daytime television. She can be seen in the recently released film, Second Acts which is being shown at national and international film festivals. The film is about two people from different backgrounds who fall in love in spite of the pressures from an unjust society. In addition, Michael is a four-time Emmy Winner, People’s Choice Award recipient and a multiple Golden Globes nominee. I enjoyed my interview with her and we discussed her upcoming projects.
