Career Beginnings

Erin’s wish to become a model appeared in her teen years – when she was 14, she won her first modeling pageant, held in St Louis. After this, she started appearing in commercials, which led her to Los Angeles. In 1967 she made her first on-screen appearance, as a dancer in the show “Malibu U”.

Following her enormous success as a model she turned to acting, and made her debut in 1976 in a minor role in the TV series “Maude”.
