Early life and education
|This section requires expansion. (March 2016)|
Owen portrayed Marilyn Munster, the pretty niece and only non-monster Munster regular character during the first season of The Munsters. However, she disliked the role and only accepted out of contractual obligations to Universal Studios (who produced the sitcom for CBS). After 13 episodes, Owen left the program and was replaced in the role by second portrayer Pat Priest.
She also appeared in the 1964 western Bullet for a Badman, opposite Audie Murphy. Beginning in 1971 she appeared for two years on Another World, after which she retired from television and chose to perform exclusively in live theatre.
She has frequently appeared with the Cambridge Theatre Company, which is the company at Hubbard Hall in Cambridge, New York.
Owen left her role on The Munsters to get married to writer and producer Jon Stone. They were married for ten years (1964–1974). She has two daughters, Polly and Kate.
She resides in Upstate New York. She continues to pursue her studies in Early American History, for which she earned a master's degree in 1989.
