Lynn Loring played Inspector Lewis Erskine’s daughter (and Jim Rhodes’ lady) in The FBI. Her role was brief—she was gone by the end of 1965—but she was already a seasoned professional at age 21,
Born in New York, Ms. Loring began her career in 1951 with a guest role on The Web. That same year, she became part of the original cast of the soap opera Search For Tomorrow. She remained with that show for 10 years.
Ms. Loring made her film debut in Splendor In The Grass (1961), which starred Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty. Most of her work, though, consisted of television appearances. By 1965, she had progressed from being a child actress to a mature performer.
After 1965, Ms. Loring continued her television and film career. She returned to soap opera in 1973, when she became a regular in Return To Peyton Place. That show ran from 1972 to 1974. Ironically, her final role was in the FBI-themed TV movie The Kansas City Massacre (1975), directed by the late Dan Curtis.
After this, Ms. Loring worked behind the camera. In 1979, she produced Return of The Mod Squad, reuniting cast members from the 1968-73 series. She had a couple of guest spots on Mod Squad, a show that had been produced by Aaron Spelling. Ms. Loring went on to produce five other films, notably the Michael Keaton film Mr. Mom (1983).
