Dawn also has an official web site, which includes an email address for her... I don't remember if it's dawnlyn.com or what the site was called, but you can do a search and find it, I'm sure...

Anyway, I sent her an email telling her how much I liked M3Sons growing up, and she sent me a really nice email back...she seems like a great person...

Also, if you go to the jumptheshark website, and go to the My Three Sons section, there is a posting from Dawn herself...last I saw, her post was moved to the top of the posts for that show, and she talks about her fond memories of being on M3S with all those great people.

I hope the later seasons come out on DVDs one day soon...

Wow, that would make Steve's stepdaughter and Felix Unger's son, Leonard, from the Odd Couple siblings in real life.

Don't forget that Dawn and Leif played siblings in the Walking Tall movies back in the 1970s.

They're half brother and sister but siblings nonetheless.

Cool

According to IMDB Leif Garrett (birth name Leif Per Nervick) and Dawn Lyn (birth name Dawn Lyn Nervick) have the same father (Rick Nervick) and the same mother (Carolyn Stellar). This would make them full blood siblings not step siblings.

Dawn Lyn was on GSN a few years ago talking about her and Leif and I thought she said they were half brother and sister but I may have misunderstood. You're probably right but IMDb isn't my idea of a reliable source.

Who played Tony Randall's son on TOC first - Leif Garrett or Willie Aames?

Maybe after the way Leif turned out, she's hoping they're only half related.

Yeah, I was surprised when I first heard, but now when I look at pictures of the two of them you can see the resemblance.
