Judy Landers (born October 7, 1958) is an American film and television actress.[1]

Early years[edit]

Landers was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and was raised in Rockland County, New York.[1] She is the daughter of Ruth Landers, and is the younger sister of fellow actress Audrey Landers. Many think she and Audrey are twins. Audrey was born in 1956 and Judy in 1958. She studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, then attended the Warren Robertson Dramatic Training School before training at the Juilliard School of Music.[citation needed]


Landers, known for her blonde hair, beautiful looks, and busty figure, has appeared in several films, including Stewardess School (1986), Armed and Dangerous (1986), Ghost Writer (1989), Club Fed (1990), Dr. Alien (1989), and The Divine Enforcer (1992).  She has also appeared in several television series, including The Love Boat (1977), Happy Days (1977), Night Court (1984), Charlie's Angels (1978), Vega$ (1978-1979), B. J. and the Bear (1979),The Jeffersons Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (1979), and Madame's Place (1982–1983), two different episodes of Knight Rider (1982 TV series) (as two different characters), and two episodes of The A-Team (again as two different characters). She also appeared in the series The Fall Guy (1982) in season 1, episode 20 ("Three for the Road") [2] as "Jinx"[citation needed], and in ALF, in episode 16 of season 1, as Brenda, Wayne Schlegel's lover.

Landers has often worked with her sister and mother in the business, including collaborating with Audrey on the children's show The Huggabug Club (1996).  The sisters were on the cover of the January 1983 issue of Playboy magazine and in a non-nude pictorial.[citation needed]

Landers, along with her sister Audrey and their mother Ruth, produced the family film Circus Island (2006).[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

In November 1987, Landers married Tom Niedenfuer, who was a relief pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team.[citation needed] They have two daughters: Lindsay, born 1989; and Kristy, born 1991.[citation needed] The couple now resides in Sarasota, Florida.[citation needed]
