A petite, energetic actress capable of projecting both a brash and a sad sack quality, although not necessarily at the same time, Hallie Todd is the daughter of actress Ann Morgan Guilbert and writer-producer George Eckstein. She began acting in her teens, appearing in local theater in Los Angeles before landing a supporting role in "Have You Ever Been Ashamed of Your Parents?," a 1983 "ABC Afterschool Special" and a more substantial part as the eldest daughter of a cancer-stricken Ann-Margret in "Who Will Love My Children?" (ABC, 1983) movie. From 1984-89, Todd played Robert Walden's daughter, always looking for Mr. Right, on the Showtime series "Brothers" and made numerous guest appearances on series, including one as Blanche's trollop niece on "The Golden Girls" and as the android offspring of Lt. Commander Data on "Star Trek: The Next Generation." In 1990, Todd played the recurring role of Keith Michell's secretary, Rhoda, in episodes of "Murder, She Wrote," which were introduced by but did not star Angela Lansbury. During the 1990-91 season, she was one of the fledgling TV writers on the ABC series "Going Places." More recently, Todd co-starred on the short-lived The WB sitcom "Life With Roger."
