Info: She attended Los Angeles Valley College.

After taking a break from acting in the 90s, she went to college and received her B.A. in psychology and theater at Antioch University.

She is also an antique collector.

Trivia: After making her TV debut as an Ivory Snow baby, she appeared on Broadway as a youth, appearing in productions of "Most Happy Fella" and "The Sound of Music".

Norris is frequently mistaken for Melanie Griffith due to their physical resemblance. Because of this, Griffith was mistakenly interviewed in the 1990s by the British media about acting in Airport 1975.

Notable roles include the wild girl Miriam in Summer of '42 (1971); a heroic young flight attendant in the disaster film Airport 1975 (1974), and as a hot girl in Roger Corman's Eat My Dust! (1976), co-starring with Ron Howard.

Early in her career Norris typically played wholesome, "girl next door" types. Later in her career, she got more "villainous vixen" type roles, including the role of loony Laura Simmons Asher on the daytime soap Santa Barbara.

Where Are They Now: It would appear that Christopher Norris has retired from her acting career. She hasn't been seen on-screen since her stint on soap opera Another World back in the late-90s. It would be nice to see her on television again. Hopefully, a comeback is in her future. If not, I hope she's enjoying every single day to its fullest!
