#21 Sherry Jackson

Sherry Jackson started out as an adorable child star, on things like the Ma and Pa Kettle series and the Danny Thomas Show. She quickly, however, “grew totally out of her pert and pretty teen figure into a ravishing stunner” (IMDb). Unfortunately, all that really meant was more TV (but this time as a “bewitching and capricious vixen”) and cheap exploitation flicks.

  1. Sherry Jackson was perfect in Star Trek the original series, quite the stunner really as the android whose unexplored emotions kinda exploded when she finally experienced that warm human kiss, hehe
