I used to think she was the most beautiful girl ever, but look at this famous heartbreaker now that she is 70!

How many of you watched “The Partridge Family?” If you were a fan, the actress Susan Dey, who played Laurie Partridge, probably made you fall in love with her.
When Susan was given the part in the four-year ABC series from 1970 to 1974, she had never acted before. However, she was so skilled that it seemed like she had been in front of the camera many times before.

Many people fell in love with the singing family who went from place to place to perform in a colorful school bus that had been fixed up. After it ended in the U.S., it was a huge hit in the U.K., too, and the actors became very famous.

David Cassidy, who worked with Susan and played Keith on the show, quickly became a teen hero that a lot of girls loved. Susan was one of the many people who were crazy about him. She liked him for a long time, but they didn’t start going out until after the show was over. Their relationship didn’t last long, and they stayed good friends until David wrote a book called C’mon, Get Happy: Fear and Loathing on the Partridge Family Bus. In it, he wrote about his relationship with Susan and shared some personal information. He said, among other things, that he broke up with her because she was too pure for him.

This made Susan mad. She vowed to never talk to him again, and when the cast got together years later, she didn’t go.
Since “The Partridge Family,” Susan has been in many movies and TV shows and even wrote a book called “Susan Dey’s Secrets on Boys, Beauty, and Popularity.”

She was nominated for six Golden Globes and three Emmys before she won the Golden Globe for Best Actress for her part as Grace Van Owen on “LA Law.”

According to Worldation.com, Susan turned down the part of Sandy in Grease, and Olivia Newton John, who played Sandy, was offered the part of Laurie in “The Partridge Family,” but her boss talked her out of taking it.


Susan lives with her husband and their family in New York, where she grew up. She’s not in the spotlight anymore, but she’ll always be someone who made our childhoods great. No matter how much time goes by, “The Partridge Family” is a show that no one really forgets.
