Kathy Garver Biography

    Kathy Garver was born in Long Beach, California on 13 December 1945. The daughter of Hayes George Garver and Rosemary Garver and the youngest of 4 children (2 brothers & 1 older sister). She attended Pacific Arts High School in 1962 and graduated in 1966. The same year, she attended UCLA and graduated in 1970. Her debut in film was Ill Cry Tomorrow (1955) at age 10, but her break-through performance came as one of the young slaves in The Ten Commandments (1956). Her big moment on television was as the teenage niece of Uncle Bill Davis named Cissy Davis on "Family Affair" (1966). After the show ended in 1971, she went to Israel to do the Stage rendition of the same CBS-TV Show in Tel Aviv in 1971. In 1972, she went to London, England, to do Stage Shows and this led to an appearance on "The David Frost Show" (1969) and "Coronation Street" (1960) for 2 days only. She met David Travis in 1976 where Wimbledon played that year on NBC Sports where he worked on the coverage, and they were married on January 17, 1981, and had a son, Reid in 1991, named after actor Tim Reid . Through her 50-year career in show business, she survived and conquered triumph through tragedy, just like the TV character she portrayed, Cissy Davis, big sister of twin children: Buffy & Jody Davis ("Family Affair" (1966)).

Kathy Garver Quotes

  • I dont blame myself. I didnt know how bad the problem was.
  • [on her favorite "Family Affair" (1966) memories]: Family Affair was then the most popular show in that country, and a live musical presentation of the show was mounted. It was cast with impersonators, except for me. I performed my role phonetically in Hebrew - people were stunned when I stepped out onto the stage!
  • [on her on and off-screen friendship with Anissa Jones , who played Buffy]: We were like sisters as well as professionals. We did sleepovers, and made presents for the cast and crew. I went to her 18th birthday party, and her Mom asked me if I could spend more time with her - she thought she had fallen in with a bad crowd. I had to leave the next day to do My Fair Lady, but I promised I would, as soon as I got back. But Annisa ODd and died before that could happen.
  • The hardest thing is being accepted as some one who has depth. Fortunately my parents stressed education and normalcy all through my childhood and during my Family Affair days. In learning to think and work independently, I firmly believe in hoisting ones own sails.
  • [on the death/suicide of her series star Brian Keith in 1997]: It was so sad, but it was in line with who he was in real life. He was this very manly man, very in charge of his life, always doing things his way. When his daughter died and he was diagnosed with lung cancer and emphysema, and given only a few weeks to live, there was no way he was going to go out any way other than his way. I truly believe that.
  • [on the personalities and/or issues Brian Keith , who starred with her in "Family Affair" (1966) , had tackled, both on- the show and in real-life]: Laid back! But actually, you know, he went through a lot of different personality changes, I think, when he was doing our show, because for that 5 years, he was married --- happily married, and he got divorced, and he had to get remarried, and then he went through depression, and then he went through a laden, and he being so true to his emotions, I mean, there was not one phony bone in Brians personality. He said what he thought, if he liked the person, he told them, if he didnt, he did, tell him that too! And he was just right there! So, he wasnt laid back, the energy was there, but it wasnt overdone.
  • [on her on- and off-screen chemistry with Brian Keith , who played "Uncle Bill Davis"]: He was a fabulous star and also a marvelous mentor to me. I first met Brian when he starred in his initial series called, "Crusader" (1955) . He played the character of "Matt", to my character, "Waif"; and hes absolutely terrific. He rescued me once again as the orphan teen-aged "Cissy" on our long-running TV series, "Family Affair" (1966) . He took me under his penthouse wing, and raised me with kindness, understanding and most of all, love. Thats what Brian Keith was all about, love. He loved his friends, his family, his co-workers, who ever needed him.
  • [Of Brian Keith ]: I loved Brian, "Im a cultural Irishman, dont you know, Im a cultural Irishman", but he went through many manifestations and changes of character, during the 5 years that we shot. At first, he was up and then his second year, he was going through a divorce and then, the third year, he met somebody else; and he became more anecdotal and told stories that he loved kids, and he was very outspoken about those that he did not like. So, he was a very interesting character and it was Brian and Sebastian Cabot [who played "Mr. French"] had such a different style of acting and thats another reason I think that "Family Affair" (1966) was so popular and stayed as it did. Both excellent actors, both coming from very different methods and styles of acting with Sebastian was more from the classical style and he would take home his script and he would dutifully look at every single word and have it to perfection, and then Brian would come in and say, Oh what do we have today? Let me see the scene, uh-huh, uh-huh, lets go! So he was very improvisational, motion of the moment. And those 2 different styles really worked out each other, very well.
