From Lost in Space to Battlestar Galactica

Anne Lockhart is the daughter of veteran actress June Lockhart (of tv's Lassie and Lost in Space). Lockhart has had a lengthy career doing movies, tv, commercials and voicework. She is probably most noted fpor her role as Lt. Sheba on tv's Battlestar Galactica.
My friend Hassan was much more of a fan of Galactica than I was. Okay, I really didn't even watch it. However, Hassan wanted to go to the Hollywood Celebrities Show to meet some of the stars of Galactica and I am always ready for a celeb convention.
While our meeting with co-star Richard Hatch produced a few memorable moments, I really don't remember much about Lockhart. I remember she talked about being proud that she was on a show which had a lasting following. We joked that she would always have a spot on the convention circuit simply based on that.
Despite her lengthy volume of other work, she was grateful that fans did remember her for one defining role. That is a good attitude compared to others who sometimes resent such notable roles.
