  • Trivia

    • Some audiences may be shocked to learn that brown-haired Tracie Savage (Christy Kennedy) was seriously considered for the role of Laura Ingalls. She stood with Melissa Gilbert as one of the last four girls standing. Even though Savage lost out to Gilbert (who was younger, shorter, and looked more right for the part), Savage did get to play Mary and Laura's good friend Christy throughout Season 1 and the beginning of Season 2. Once she hit 18, the actress knew she didn't want to have anything to do with acting as an adult, but she did go on to have a great career in journalism, and she even testified during the highly publicized OJ Simpson trial!
