About Pam Dawber
American actress Pam Dawber has an estimated net worth of $40 million. She was born Pamela Dawber on October 18, 1951 in Detroit, Michigan, USA. She is best known for playing the lead roles of Mindy McConnell and Samantha Russell on the television sitcoms Mork & Mindy (1978-1982) and My Sister Sam (1986-1988), respectively.
Dawber attended North Farmington High School and Oakland Community College. She began her professional career as a fashion model, then turned to professional acting. She had a leading role in the stock production of the musical comedy Swee Adeline, which led to an audition for a major role on the television series Tabitha (1977). However, she did not get the part, instead getting a role in the Robert Altman film A Wedding (1978).
Pam’s acting break came with the role of Mindy McConnell, the love interest of Mork (played by a then-unknown Robin Williams) on the ABC sitcom Mork & Mindy. She had an exclusive contract with the network, and became one of their stars. She sang in the 1980s Los Angeles Civic Light Opera production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Pirate of Penzance, and also appeared in various television movies, such as Through Naked Eyes, Last of the Great Survivors and This Wife for Hire.
Between 1986 and 1988, Pam Dawber played the role of Samantha Russell on the CBS sitcom My Sister Sam. She had additional television movie appearances in projects including The Face of Fear, Web of Deception, A Stranger to Love and Don’t Look Behind.
Pam married actor Mark Harmon on March 21, 1987. They have two sons, Sean Thomas and Ty Christian. The couple both appeared in the film I’ll Remember April.
