Ronnie Claire Edwards made her acting debut with a role that most actors only dream of, taking on the role of Corabeth on TV's The Waltons in 1974. The show was intensely popular, and Edwards remained with the cast until the show ended its run in 1981. She also acted in a variety of other projects, like the '70s TV movies Future Cop and When Every Day Was the Fourth of July. After The Waltons, Edwards enjoyed an extensive career in repository theater, and continued to act on camera, mostly in the form of TV guest appearances on shows like Designing Women and Murder, She Wrote. She made several returns to the Waltons in the '90s for TV movies like A Walton Thanksgiving Reunion (1993) and A Walton Wedding (1995). Edwards died in 2016 at age 83.
