Most fondly remembered for her starring role as “Cissy” in the long-running CBS international television hit, Family Affair, Kathy Garver has also garnered critical acclaim in movies, stage, radio, voice-over animation, and audio book narration.
Kathy was born on December 13 in Long Beach, California to Hayes and Rosemary Garver joining her sister, Beverly, and brothers, Hayes, Jr. and Lance. Her professional acting career began when she was just seven years old appearing in TV westerns, sit coms, and dramatic programs such as Climax and Matinee Theater. When she was eight years old, Hollywood legendary director Cecil B. DeMille recognized Kathy’s distinct talents. Originally hired for a small part in the epic motion picture, The Ten Commandments, Kathy was noticed by the great director who then had special scenes written into the movie to highlight the talented little girl. The award-winning movie followed her first film, The Night of the Hunter, directed by Academy Award winner, Charles Laughton.
During her teenage years, she added radio and stage to her burgeoning film and television career. Kathy is very much in demand for her numerous vocal characterizations. She is a standout in the very competitive field of voice-overs for cartoons, commercials, toys and audio books. She voiced “Pepper,” an automotive whiz in the Chuck Norris Karate Kommandos TV series and “Firestar,” a mutant super hero in the Spiderman and His Amazing Friends TV series.
Kathy Garver produced, narrated and wrote lyrics and original music for eight audio Beatrix Potter tales and eight Mother Goose-based audiotapes for Smarty Pants, Inc. Kathy’s Beatrix Potter tapes have sold over two million copies and have won numerous awards. She has recorded books for Brilliance Audio, The Dove Foundation, and Listen and Live Audio. Her voice has been heard in Back Draft, Apollo 13 (which achieved the Academy Award for sound), Ransom, and Jingle all the Way. Kathy has recorded more than 80 audio books garnering four prestigious Audie awards in the process.
