Patricia Ann "Tisha" Sterling (born December 10, 1944) is an American television and film actress. She is the daughter of actor Robert Sterling and actress and singer Ann Sothern.

Life and career[edit]

Born in Los Angeles, California, Sterling started acting in the 1960s with an appearance on her mother's television series The Ann Sothern Show. She later appeared in episodes of The Donna Reed Show, The Long, Hot Summer, Batman episodes 43 and 44 as Legs, the daughter of Ma Parker (played by Shelley Winters), The Name of the Game, Hawaii Five-O, and The New Adventures of Perry Mason. She appeared in the feature films Village of the Giants (1965), Coogan's Bluff (1968), and Norwood (1970).

In 1987, Sterling played a younger version of her mother's character (in flashbacks) in The Whales of August. Following that role, she appeared in two other films. Sterling made her last onscreen appearance to date in the 1999 film Breakfast of Champions, opposite Bruce Willis. She has since retired from acting, and currently resides as a florist in Ketchum, Idaho (where her mother lived for many years until her death in 2001) with her daughter, Heidi Bates Hogan.
