What do Minnie Pearl and Marilyn Monroe have in common? They've both been portrayed by actress Misty Rowe.

Enjoying a diversified career that has spanned twenty five years with more than two hundred T.V. shows, five series and ten films.




Some of her great memories include the year she spent on Happy Days as Wendy, the car hop, when Ron Howard made his directing debut; auditioning for Mel Brooks and winning the role of Maid Marion, on the series, When Things Were Rotten, where she would play opposite Sid Caesar one week, and Dudley Moore the next. Another of her favorite memories was starring opposite Joe Namath in L'il Abner on a nationwide tour. The shorts she wore as Daisy Mae in that production, she also wore on a poster that would sell over one million copies. (see Fan Club for a miniature poster)

The hit of the Cannes Film Festival for three different years, and on the cover of numerous European magazines, she would meet Robin Leach, who guest starred twelve years later on Hee Haw, and sent her to Quebec to stay in a castle on Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. Oh yes, by the way, she was a regular on Hee Haw for nineteen years.

Her last year on Hee Haw, tragedy struck, and Misty lost a child, followed by the death of her beloved drama coach, Stella Adler. A move to the East Coast to be with her husband and new baby girl, Dreama, ended in divorce.

Shortly thereafter, her strong foundation in comedy and talent, landed her the part of Louise in the National hit, Always,....Patsy Cline, which she performed in Branson, Missouri, Albany, New York, Morgantown, West Virginia, and La Mirada, California, her home state and Bridgeport Downtown Cabaret, breaking all box offices records in their twenty year history.

As a result of her comedic work in Always,....Patsy Cline, she has written a stand-up comedy act which she has performed at numerous clubs in New York City, including the world famous Carolines, Don't Tell Mama and Stand-Up New York. She also made her Off-Broadway debut at the Tribeca Playhouse in the acclaimed (by the New York Times) play, Imagining Brad, co-starring in a gut-wrenching role wowing critics and fans alike. And if that's not enough, she has put together her own one woman show, "A Misty Christmas...Finally, A Fruitcake You'll Like", which premiered at the Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City.
