Joan Prather (born October 17, 1950) is an American actress, best known for her role in Eight Is Enough.[1]

Prather was born in Dallas, Texas, and graduated from Highland Park High School. She appeared in movies including Smile and The Devil's Rain, and TV series including Executive Suite, Eight Is Enough, CHiPs, Fantasy Island, and the 1980 edition of Battle of the Network Stars.

While on the set of The Devil's Rain, Prather told an "extremely unhappy" John Travolta that Scientology had helped her, inspiring him to get involved with the religion upon his later return to Los Angeles.[2]
