Mini Bio (1)

Was famed as George and Steve Baxter's snobbish sister on the 1960's sitcom, HAZEL. She played a nemesis of sorts to the show's leading character, "Hazel". Since Hazel was the family's domestic busy-body, she was often shunned by "Dierdre Thompson" (who was played by Lewis), an always aspiring socialite who received her self-esteem through the accolades of the upper class.
