Swift made her acting debut in 1977 at the age of 13, when she played the role of 'Ivy Templeton' in the horror film Audrey Rose, giving a stunning performance as Ivy Templeton, a young girl suffering from disturbing nightmares because she is the reincarnation of a girl named Audrey Rose. The following year, Swift appeared as 14-year-old Dee Johnson in the comedy Harper Valley PTA, with Barbara Eden and Ronny Cox. In 1981, she starred in her first leading role, in the Bert I. Gordon film Burned at the Stake. Her final film appearance came in 1995, when she starred in Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, with Donald Pleasence, Paul Rudd and Marianne Hagan.
Swift has a short film career, as well as a short television career for which she appeared in several guest roles during the 1970s and '80s. Her first television role was in the CBS mini-series The Chisholms, which ran for a total of 13 episodes over a year. They also include the short-lived series Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, which lasted one season, the Golden Globe-winning Magnum, P.I., Amazing Stories and Simon & Simon. Among her television film credits are Featherstone's Nest, The Six of Us and A Killer in the Family.
Swift has been married to attorney Alan Arnall since 1993. She is a mother of seven and currently resides, with her husband, in Glendale, California. She is a contributor to the conservative political website Politichicks. She made a phone call in 2009 to the Rush Limbaugh radio show where she complained that Obamacare took away the choice of insurance companies to cover who they wish to and that elderly people should pay higher premiums for health care instead of the burden being shared by younger American taxpayers. The call drew attention to her in conservative media circles and led to her being invited by the late Andrew Breitbart in 2010 to write for his fledgling website Big Journalism.
