Biography

Born in Bristol, England, Veronica is the older sister of the popular child actress Angela Cartwright. In her early career, Veronica was cast in a number of popular movies such as The Childrens Hour (1961), Spencers Mountain (1963) and Alfred Hitchcocks The Birds (1963). As such, she was cast as Jemima Boone in the popular television series Daniel Boone (1964), which ran from 1964 to 66. Her career after Daniel Boone may have been influenced by Hitchcock, since she appeared in both the remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) and the horror classic Alien (1979). On television, she appeared twice as Lumpys younger sister, Violet Rutherford and once as Peggy MacIntosh on Leave It to Beaver (1957) and had a small role in the television movie Still the Beaver (1983). Cartwright also appeared in Robert Kennedy and His Times (1985), Tanner 88 (1988) and had a recurring role on L.A. Law (1986). Her big screen features included The Right Stuff (1983), Flight of the Navigator (1986) and The Witches of Eastwick (1987). Veronica worked on the stage in Electra, Talleys Folly, Homesteaders, Butterflies are Free and The Triplet Connection. Alternating between television and big screen movies in the 90s, Cartwright has appeared in such films as Hitlers Daughter (1990) and Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh (1995).
