Question: In Coming to America, who played “Akeem’s” father?
Last Question: On Growing Pains, what was the name of the baby born into the “Seaver” clan?
Following in the steps of Cousin Oliver (The Brady Bunch), Sam (Diff’rent Strokes), Andrew (Family Ties), and Scrappy Doo (Scooby Doo), Growing Pains, Chrissy, joined the Seaver family on one of my favorite comedies of the ’80s, which set the show up to “jump the shark”. The show took it’s giant leap over the shark when Leonardo DiCaprio joined the cast as Luke, a homeless boy taken in by the Seavers.
Chrissy Seaver was born on the show in 1988. As an infant, she was played by twins Kristen and Kelsey Dohring (who alternated in the role). Beginning in the fall of 1990, Chrissy’s age was advanced to six years old. She was then played by Ashley Johnson. She played the role until the show was canceled in 1992.
She has done voice acting for many cartoons, including Disney’s Recess and recently she has been the voice of star character Gwen Tennyson on The Cartoon Network’s Ben 10: Alien Force.
