Linda Kaye Henning Wiki Biography

Linda Kaye Henning was born on the 16th September 1944, in Los Angeles, California USA, and is an actress, best known to the world as Betty Jo Bradley in the TV comedy series “Petticoat Junction” (1963-1970), and for her frequent appearances in game shows, such as “The Hollywood Squares” (1969), “Match Game 73” (1974), and “Password Plus” (1979), among other differing appearances.

Have you ever wondered how rich Linda Kaye Henning is, as of mid- 2017? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that Henning’s net worth is as high as $1 million, an amount earned through her career, which has been active since the early ‘60s.

Linda is the first child born to famous TV producer Paul Henning, and his wife Ruth. She has two siblings, Carol Alice Henning, and Paul Anthony Henning. Although a daughter of a television producer, Linda didn’t show acting aspirations until her late teens, when she lent her voice to Jethrine Bodine in the TV series that her father produced – “The Beverly Hillbillies” (1962-1970). Though she was the voice of Jethrine, the character was played by Max Baer Jr. After that, her father got her into another one of his creations, the sitcom “Petticoat Junction” (1963-1970), as Betty Jo Bradley, a character which she later played in the “Beverly Hillbillies” and in “Green Acres”, also produced by her father.

After the cancellation of the popular sitcom “Petticoat Junction” in 1970, Linda started looking for new acting engagements and has remained active as an actress until the present day. Unfortunately, her roles aren’t many, and she hasn’t had much success. Some of her more successful appearances include the lead role in the film “The Nurse Killer” in 1975, then as Mrs. Osbourne in the comedy film “Mad About You” in 1989, starring Adam West, Claudia Christian and Joseph Gian, and as Mrs. Mallory in the Primetime Emmy Award- nominated TV sci-fi adventure series “Slider” (1995-2000).

Linda has had more success in game shows, making numerous appearances throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s, including aside from thois ementioned above – “Family Feud”, “Password”, “Tattletales” and “Showoffs”, all of which helped increase her wealth to a large degree.

Regarding her personal life, Linda has been married to actor Ashby Adams since 1994. Previously, she was married to her “Petticoat Junction” co-star Mike Manor from 1968 to 1973.

Linda Kaye Henning Important Facts

  • Her first husband, actor Mike Minor developed a crush on Linda when he first played a small guest part in the second season of Petticoat Junction (1963). She did not know him, however, because they didn’t share any scenes together. Once he was a regular on the series, plans were to have his character and the character of older sister Billie Jo fall in love and get married. However, when Mike and Linda fell in love on the set, the producers decided to go with it and fit it into the show instead of the original idea.
  • Because her father Paul Henning, who shares her birth date, was afraid of being accused of nepotism, he was not involved in the casting of Linda. Once she was cast, she dropped her last name at the request of her father and used her middle name of Kay instead. He wryly suggested she add an “e” to make it “Kaye” so people might think she was the daughter of fellow redheaded comedian Danny Kaye.
  • Took classes at UCLA for years with her TV sister Meredith MacRae.
  • Appeared in a number of musical theatre plays including “Brigadoon,” “Carousel” (with John Raitt), “Best Foot Forward,” “Applause,” “The Pajama Game,” “I Do! I Do!” and “Damn Yankees.” Legitimate plays include “Born Yesterday” and “Mary, Mary.”.

  • Her mother enrolled her in the children’s theater group, The Peter Pan Players, to help her overcome her extreme shyness where she performed in a number of fairy tale pieces such as Cinderella, Pinocchio and Snow White. It worked and she stayed with it into her teen years. Actress Bea Benaderet saw her in one of their productions and told Paul Henning, the Petticoat Junction (1963) creator, that she would be ideal for the role of one of the daughters on their upcoming TV series. She auditioned and got the part of youngest sister Betty Jo Bradley.
  • Like her character of Betty Jo, Linda was a tomboy growing up. She liked climbing trees and animals.
  • Dubbed in the voice of Jethrine on the Beverly Hillbillies.
  • Along with Cleavant Derricks, she is one of only two actors to appear in both the pilot and finale of Sliders (1995): Sliders: Pilot (1995) and Sliders: The Seer (2000).
  • She played the same character (Betty Jo Elliott) on three different series: The Beverly Hillbillies (1962), Petticoat Junction (1963) and Green Acres (1965).
  • Because of her being credited as ‘Linda Kaye’ early in her career, in the 1990s some reference books and online guides mixed up and combined her credits with those of another Linda Kaye.
  • Ex-sister-in-law of Gregg Fedderson.
  • Ex-stepdaughter-in-law of Yvonne Lime.
  • Daughter of producer Paul Henning and Ruth Henning.
