  Summary  

Gail June Edwards is a retired American actress best known for her roles as Dot Higgins in ABC's It's a Living, Sharon Lemure in NBC's Blossom, and Vicky Larson in ABC's Full House.

  Biography  

 early life and career
Edwards, a native Floridian, was raised in Coral Gables and caught the performing bug early in life. She had her father hang the curtain and lights while she choreographed, costumed, and starred in her own neighborhood musicals. In the sixth grade, Edwards played “Little Mary” in The Women at the Coconut Grove Playhouse where famed theater producer-playwright George Abbott came backstage to single out her performance. This appearance became her launching pad for numerous industrial films and local television commercials in South Florida.

In 1970, after graduating from the University of Miami, Cum Laude, Edwards wrote, produced, and starred in the off-Broadway musical . It won the Miami Herald Critics’ Choice award three times before the musical debuted in New York. While in New York, Edwards signed with the Management Group. Soon afterwards, she landed the role of “Sandy” opposite Peter Gallagher in Broadway's East Coast tour of Grease. After producing and starring in two additional productions, and Vanities, both earning her the Drama-Logue Critics' Award, Edwards turned her focus toward television.

Upon moving to Los Angeles in 1976, Edwards signed with the Ro Diamond Agency and immediately began landing guest-star roles on such television series as Happy Days, Lou Grant, M*A*S*H and Taxi.

In 1979, Edwards auditioned for a Witt-Thomas production in which she landed the role of “Dot Higgins” on ABC’s It’s a Living. She, along with Barrie Youngfellow, Paul Kreppel and the late Marian Mercer were the only four members of the It's a Living cast who lasted during the network and syndicated runs of the show. During this six-year run, Edwards appeared in many movies-of-the-week along with numerous other guest-star appearances in such series as Benson, Buffalo Bill, Doogie Howser, M.D., Knight Rider, Night Court and the premiere episode of Amazing Stories, directed by Steven Spielberg.

Upon moving to the Southwest in 1994, Edwards retired from showbiz while concluding her last two roles, portraying the engaged Vicky Larson on ABC’s Full House and Sharon Lemure, the fast-talking mother of Six on NBC’s Blossom.
