Barrie Youngfellow (born October 22, 1950) is a retired American voice over, film and television actress.[1] She is the wife of stage and screen actor Sam Freed.

Career[edit]

She began her career in the early 1970s in an episode of The Streets of San Francisco. Throughout the 1970s she starred in numerous television shows, made-for-TV movies and commercials. In 1980, she portrayed Joan Crawford in the made for TV movie Moviola: The Scarlett O'Hara War. Youngfellow is perhaps best known for her role as Jan Hoffmeyer Gray in the TV show It's a Living, which ran from 1980 until 1982 on ABC, and from 1985 to 1989 in first-run syndication (she, along with Gail Edwards, Paul Kreppel and Marian Mercer, were the only members of the It's a Living cast to last all the way through the show's network and syndication runs). In 1990, It's a Living producers Paul Junger Witt and Tony Thomas cast Youngfellow in the pilot episode of Blossom, in which she played the mother of Mayim Bialik's title character; she did not continue with the project when NBC picked it up as a regular series. In 1998, Youngfellow made her last TV appearance, in an episode of Law & Order.

She is the wife of stage and screen actor Sam Freed.[2] The two narrated the 2001 audiobook of The Children's Book of Faith by William J. Bennett.[3]

As of 2011, she is the president of the California corporation To Be Announced, Inc., founded November 20, 1978.[4]
