Sherry Jackson (born February 15, 1942 in Wendell, Idaho, U.S.) is an American actress and former child star. She made her film debut at seven years old in the musical You`re My Everything, starring Anne Baxter. She appeared in several of the Ma and Pa Kettle movies during the 1950s as Susie Kettle, one of the titular couple`s numerous children, and played John Wayne`s daughter in Trouble Along the Way. She portrayed the emotionally volatile visionary and ascetic Jacinta Marto in The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima.
She is probably best remembered today for her role as Terry Williams on The Danny Thomas Show (AKA Make Room for Daddy) from 1953–58. Fans of the original Star Trek will recognize her as the sexually appealing android Andrea in the 1966 episode, "What are Little Girls Made Of?"
When Blake Edwards remade the Peter Gunn television series as a feature film entitled Gunn in 1967, Jackson was filmed in a nude scene that appeared only in the international version, not the U.S. release. Stills of the nude scene appeared in the August 1967 issue of Playboy magazine, in a pictorial entitled "Make Room For Sherry." The movie has never been released on VHS or DVD.

Wiki Bio Text
==Sherry Jackson== (born February 15, 1942, in Wendell, Idaho) is an American actress and former child star.
===Early life=== ====Sherry D. Jackson==== was born in 1942 to [[Maurita (or Maurite ) Kathleen Gilbert]] and [[Curtis Loys Jackson Jr.]] of Wendell, Idaho. Her mother provided drama, singing, and dancing lessons for Sherry and her two brothers, [[Curtis L. Jackson Jr]]. and [[Gary L. Jackson]], beginning in their formative years. After her husband died in 1948, Maurita moved the family from Wendell to Los Angeles. By one account Maurita, who had been told while still in Idaho that her children should be in movies, was referred to a theatrical agent by a tour bus driver they met in Los Angeles. According to another, she was referred by the friend of an agent who saw Sherry eating ice cream on the [[Sunset Strip]]. Apocryphal perhaps, but within the year Sherry had her first screen test, for Snake Pit with [[Olivia De Havilland]], and by the age of seven appeared in her first feature film, the 1949 musical [[You're My Everything]], which starred [[Anne Baxter]] and [[Dan Dailey]].
====In 1950,==== young Sherry became friends with actor [[Steve Cochran]] while working with him on [[The Lion and the Horse]]. Steve introduced his friend, writer [[Montgomery Pittman]], to Sherry's widowed mother.
====A romance developed,==== and in 1952 Pittman married [[Maurita Jackson]] in a small ceremony on June 4 in Torrance, California, with Sherry as flower girl and younger brother Gary as ring-bearer; Cochran himself was Pittman's best man. In 1955 Cochran hired Pittman to write his next film, [[Come Next Spring]], the first that Cochran produced himself. Sherry played the part of Cochran's mute daughter [[Annie Ballot]], a role Pittman wrote specifically for his step-daughter.
====During the course==== of appearing in several of the Ma and Pa Kettle movies during the 1950s as [[Susie Kettle]], one of the titular couple's numerous children. She also appeared in [[The Breaking Point]], which starred [[John Garfield]] in the actor's penultimate film role. In 1952, she portrayed the emotionally volatile visionary and ascetic [[Jacinta Marto]] in [[The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima]], and the following year played [[John Wayne's daughter]] in the football-themed [[Trouble Along the Way]].
===Make Room for Daddy=== ====Jackson may be best remembered==== for her role as older daughter [[Terry Williams]] on [[The Danny Thomas Show]] (known as [[Make Room for Daddy]] during the first three seasons) from 1953–1958. During the course of her five years on the series, she established a strong bond with her on-screen mother, [[Jean Hagen]], but Hagen left the series after the third season in 1956.
====Worn out==== from the relentless pace of the program, Jackson left the program once her five-year contract ended two years later. Jackson received a [[star]] at 6324 Hollywood Blvd. on the [[Hollywood Walk of Fame]] on February 8, 1960 for her work in television. [[Penny Parker]] replaced her in the 1959-60 season, but the character was written out of the series after Parker married.
===Later roles=== ====Over the next few years,==== Jackson broadened her range of acting roles, appearing as a hit woman on [[77 Sunset Strip]], a freed Apache captive who yearns to return to the reservation on [[The Tall Man]], an alcoholic on [[Mr. Novak]], a woman accused of murder on [[Perry Mason]], and an unstable mother-to-be on [[Wagon Train]]. After a 1965 appearance on [[Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.]], she then made guest appearances on [[Lost in Space]] ("[[The Space Croppers]]" (1966 March 30)), My Three Sons, [[The Wild Wild West]] ("[[The Night of the Gruesome Games]]" (1968 Oct 25)), [[Batman]], and the original [[Star Trek]] series. On the latter program, she made one of her more memorable portrayals as the android [[Andrea]] in the episode "[[What Are Little Girls Made Of?]]".
====In 1966,==== Jackson was cast as [[Katherine "Kate" Turner]], a young woman from Boston who takes over a wagon train after the death of the trailmaster, in the episode "[[Lady of the Plains]]" of the syndicated series [[Death Valley Days]]. [[DeForest Kelley]] plays a gambler, Elliott Webster, who falls in love with her though she is engaged to marry once the wagon train reaches Salt Lake City.
====When Blake Edwards==== remade the television series Peter Gunn as a feature film entitled Gunn (1967), Jackson was filmed in a nude scene that appeared only in the international version, not the U.S. release. Stills of the nude scene appeared in the August 1967 issue of [[Playboy]] magazine, in a pictorial entitled "[[Make Room For Sherry]]". The movie has not yet been released on VHS or DVD.
===Personal life=== ====In 1967,==== Jackson began a five-year relationship with business executive and horse breeder, Fletcher R. Jones, a union that ended on November 7, 1972, when Jones was killed in a plane crash eight miles east of Santa Ynez Airport in Santa Barbara County, California. Five months after Jones' death, Jackson filed suit against his estate, asking for more than $1 million, with her attorneys stating that Jones had promised to provide her with at least $25,000 a year for the rest of her life. The litigation proved to be unsuccessful.
