Biography

An affable, petite actress who got her big break with a role as the rejected partner of dancer Tony Manero (John Travolta) in "Saturday Night Fever" and followed up as the star of the ABC sitcom "Angie" Donna Pescow was a New York native who got her start on stage and has worked steadily on television since the late 1970s. After seeing "Funny Girl" on Broadway at age thirteen and realizing that the stage held the key to her future, Pescow attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and upon graduating landed a featured role in the national touring company of "Ah! Wilderness." While working alongside Barbara Bel Geddes and Richard Kiley no doubt taught the young actress important lessons, she resumed her studies in NYC when the tour was over with the legendary Lee Strasberg.
