Erin Moran was born on October 18, 1961 in Los Angeles, California, the youngest of six children. She did her first television commercial at the age of six and became a regular cast member of two television programs, "Daktari" (1968-69) and "The Don Rickles Show" (1972), long before "Happy Days." She also made guest appearances on many other shows, including "The Courtship of Eddie's Father," "My Three Sons," and "Family Affair." Moran had parts in several films as well, including the 1968 Debbie Reynolds movie, "How Sweet It Is," and "Watermelon Man" in 1970.
After several seasons on "Happy Days," Moran continued her role as Joanie Cunningham in the short-lived spin-off "Joanie Loves Chachi." When this series was cancelled in 1983, she returned to "Happy Days" for the final season. Her work since then includes three episodes of "Love Boat" and one guest spot on "Murder, She Wrote."
In 1992, Moran was the only original cast member absent from a "Happy Days" reunion show.
