Bonnie Franklin is best remembered for playing plucky single mom Ann Romano on the long-running sitcom One Day at a Time (1975-1984). Bonnie Franklin began her acting career at age 12 when she appeared in an Alfred Hitchcock made-for-television movie The Wrong Man in 1956; that same year Bonnie appeared in a feature film episode of the Kettle family saga, The Kettles in the Ozarks. Franklin appeared a couple of times as a guest star on television series such as The Man from U.N.C.L.E. in the 1960's.
While working on her sitcom, Bonnie Franklin occasionally appeared in television movies. After the series demise, her television work became sporadic, and by the early '90s she had left the medium altogether, though Franklin continues acting in regional theater and in cross-country tours of plays.
