Victoria Paige Meyerink (born December 27, 1960) is an award-winning producer and former child actor.[1] At the age of four, Meyerink became Danny Kaye's co-star on the CBS variety series The Danny Kaye Show and, in 2006, was honored by the Young Artist Foundation with its Former Child Star "Lifetime Achievement" Award for her role on the series.[2]

She went on to co-star with Anne Francis in Brainstorm, with Clint Walker in The Night of the Grizzly and with Elvis Presley in Speedway. On television she guest-starred on such notable shows as Green Acres, My Three Sons and Family Affair.

As an adult, she was, at one time, the youngest female film producer in the film industry; producing the film Young Warriors at the age of twenty-two. In addition to Young Warriors, Meyerink produced Night Force and Finding Home, for which she received the Montreal World Film Festival Excellence in Producing Award.
