Mindy Cohn didn't actually audition for the show. She met Charlotte Rae and the Tandem producers when they were at Westlake School for Girls doing research for the show. Charlotte met Mindy at this point, when they were talking to some of the students trying to get a feeling for boarding school life, and fell in love with her. She convinced the producers to add her into the show even though she wasn't originally one of the characters in the cast, and she told them to call her "Natalie" after an old friend of hers from childhood that Mindy reminded her of.

The Facts of Life ran on network TV during my early years but I have seen it in syndication and I really, really like what I have seen. The series is intensely entertaining to say the least. My favorite character is none other than Jo Polniaczek, portrayed by the ever-gorgeous Nancy McKeon. From the way I look at it, the series' best episodes are those that revolve around the Jo character. The other cast members are also terrific but McKeon will always be my top favorite from the classic NBC show.
I really hope that entire Facts of Life series gets released on DVD eventually. Hopefully, when this finally happens, retail stores will be able to keep the boxed sets in stock. Also, I really hope that the first two seasons get released as one set, as those two were only half-seasons. I am very anxious to view this incredible show again!
