Who remembers Bonanza, Little House On The Prairie and Highway To Heaven?
AmoMama is and always will be a great admirer of the amazing Michael Landon and his incredible work, and now we are proud to introduce you to his no less stunning and talented daughter, Jennifer Landon!
It is quite likely that you’ve already seen her work, and been captivated by her beauty without realizing who her Dad was!
Jennifer had never made much of a noise about her connection at all, and has made a point of making her own way in Hollywood.
“When somebody passes away, they get a golden kind of image. When anybody passes away. Dad had a really golden image. Period.»
In fact, this lady has won an Emmy three times in her career, and starred in many shows such as House, The Young and the Restless, Banshee, and has now joined the TNT drama Animal Kingdom.
Jen was seven years old when her father, Michael Landon, passed away, and it took her a long time to realize how famous he really was. Jennifer admits that her father was exactly what people imagine. A gentle, calm and loving man. Life in her family, she tells us, was truly magical and tranquil.
One of her fondest memories of her father was from her fourth or fifth year. It had snowed, and her father took her out into the backyard where she discovered the snow was pink!
Michael Landon had tinted the and flavored the snow with a popular strawberry drink which her mom had forbidden as «too sweet». The two waded through the snow with spoons scooping up it up and eating it!
Following her father’s passing, Jennifer discovered herself following in his footsteps, and her talent is part of his legacy.
Maybe one day we will watch a Landon grandchild with the same electrifying ability, and that same sweet smile as Michael and Jennifer Landon share?
