Jeanne Bal (born May 3, 1928, Santa Monica, California – died April 30, 1996, Sherman Oaks, California) was an American actress who worked primarily in 1960s television.

Career[edit]

In the 1959-1960 season, Bal co-starred with William Demarest, Murray Hamilton, and Stubby Kaye in the NBC sitcom Love and Marriage as Pat Baker, Demarest's 31-year-old daughter, who works with him in the William Harris Music Publishing Company, which is in financial straits because Demarest's character Harris will not publish rock and roll music.

In 1961, she became a regular on the sitcom Bachelor Father, but left shortly afterwards. Her other television credits include four appearances on Perry Mason, including the role of Dr. Linda Carey in the 1962 episode, "The Case of the Angry Astronaut," and murder victim Vera Wynne in the 1965 episode, "The Case of the Telltale Tap." She also made guest spots on Bonanza, Riverboat, Wagon Train, and I Spy.

Her most famous role is as one of the three actresses (including the creature itself) who played Nancy Crater in the Star Trek: The Original Series episode The Man Trap, the first episode to be aired.

Death[edit]

Jeanne Bal died a few days before her 68th birthday from metastasized breast cancer.[citation needed]
