When I met Linda Purl at a Hollywood Collectors Show, I surprised her with a little bit of trivia. Purl played 2 different steady roles on tv's Happy Days. For season 2, Purl portrayed Gloria, Richie's high school girlfriend. Eight seasons later, she portrayed Ashley Pfister, Fonzie's sophisticated girlfriend.
Obviously she knew it, but she stated that few others remember that. I did not bring out any other trivia, choosing to quit when I was ahead. I always think it is a fine line between bringing up good memories of the celeb and being just a bit too knowledgeable on any specific person.
Purl had many other roles during her long career, including a 2 year stint on tv's Matlock as Ben Matlock's younger daughter Charlene. Purl also has released several jazz music albums.
