Career biography[edit]

Klous began her career in the 1970s as a successful model in New York City afer graduating with a bachelor of science in biology and psychology from the University of Texas.[1] In New York, executive producer Mark Carliner cast her opposite Connie Sellecca and Katherine Witt (who were also New York City-based models) in the CBS prime-time comedy-drama Flying High (1978–79) about the misadventures of three young flight attendants at the fictional Sun West Airlines. Despite high ratings in the beginning, the series eventually failed and was cancelled four months after it initially debuted. Klous did occasional television work afterwards during the early 1980s.[2]

In 1984, the producers of the long-running ABC sitcom The Love Boat tapped Klous to replace actress Lauren Tewes when Tewes was dropped from the show. On The Love Boat, Klous portrayed Judy McCoy, the sister and successor of Tewes' character as cruise director. She remained with the series until it ended in 1986.[3]Pat Klous retired from acting as of 2002.
