Missy Francis: I remember vividly the day I went to audition for Little House on the Prairie. I had been on hundreds of auditions, even though I was only seven. To me, this was just like any other audition, except Michael Landon was there! He was warm and friendly, but it was startling to see him in modern clothes! I read the scenes with him, and even at such a young age, I felt a connection and knew that he would pick me. I don't think I really understood how much that would change my life.
