Biography: Typecast often as a dumb blond, Joan Vohs struggled her entire career to break out of that mold. She did manage partial success, but ultimately dropped out of acting altogether in order to become a full-time mom. She was born in Queens, New York, was a Rockette at age 16 and a Connover model before any acting for movies or television. Her first several roles were as models, usually of the "dumb blond" ilk. Occasionally, she landed a more substantive role, e.g. the role as suspected French spy Fortune Mallory played opposite George Montgomery in the 1953 "Fort Ti." After a successful run of guest appearances on the T.V. sitcom "Family Affair," Vohs retired from acting and devoted herself to raising her own family.
