On Saturday, the world said goodbye to Patty Duke. The Oscar-winning actress, who died in late March at 69, was honored at a memorial service in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, where she had built a peaceful life over the last 30 years alongside husband Mike Pearce and their four dogs (and where she was known, simply, as Anna, her birth name). The public service, at Lake City Church, was attended by friends and family alike. Melissa Gilbert, who starred alongside Duke in 1979's The Miracle Worker, said, "From the moment we met, we were thick as thieves and we remained that way for 40 years. »

Child actors have played a crucial role in some of the best shows, miniseries, and movies to air since television’s inception. Today they’re delivering dynamic performances at a rapid pace as the television landscape expands well beyond broadcast and cable.

Patty Duke (1946-2016)

30 March 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

As I'm sure you've heard Patty Duke, the third youngest actor ever to win an Oscar (she was 16 when she took the industry's top prize for The Miracle Worker) and the former President of SAG, has died at the age of 69. Her birth name was Anna Marie Duke and by the time she was 14 she was already a famous thespian. She originated the role of blind and deaf Helen Keller in the hit Broadway play "The Miracle Worker". She and her Tony winning co-star Anne Bancroft both transferred over to the film version two years later to bring Helen Keller's incredible story to millions more. It really is a shockingly good movie, with two stellar performances, and it's devoid of the sentiments and easy comforts that you're expecting if you've only heard of it secondhand; that movie earns its "triumph of the human spirit" appeal.

Remembering Patty Duke: An Actress Who Worked Miracles

29 March 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Patty Duke falls into her own special niche when one discusses American movie and TV stars: 16 years old when she won her supporting-actress Oscar for her performance as unhearing, unseeing Helen Keller in the 1963 movie The Miracle Worker, she was perhaps the most dramatically formidable teenage actress ever. Her scenes of physical combat with Anne Bancroft, who won Best Actress as Helen's teacher, Annie Sullivan, are hair-raising more than 50 years later. Consider, too, that she followed this up with her own sitcom, The Patty Duke Show (1963-66), in which she split her performance between the roles of identical cousins, one outgoing and American, »
