Dawn Lyn Actor

Dawn Lyn Nervik (b. January 11, 1963) is an American actress best known for her role as Dodie Douglas during the last three seasons of the long-running CBS family comedy My Three Sons which ran from 1960-1972. Born Dawn Lyn Nervik in Los Angeles, California, Lyn first appeared as an American Indian child in the 1967 B-grade western Cry Blood, Apache at age 4. In 1969, Lyn auditioned for the character Prudence Everett on the short-lived ABC series Nanny and the Professor, but when the pilot did not initially sell, she was released from her contract with ABC. ABC unsuccessfully sued to get Lyn for the part after she'd already been cast for the role of the adopted daughter on My Three Sons. Lyn worked steadily in her youth on many popular series like Adam 12, Emergency, Marcus Welby and Gunsmoke. In 1971 Lyn had a major role in the western Shoot Out as Gregory Peck's daughter. She also appeared in movies such as the Walking Tall trilogy. In 1973 Lyn auditioned for the role of Regan in The Exorcist, but was considered too young for the subject matter.
