Kristy McNicholKristy McNichol often played indomitable tomboy characters as a child, with a delightful smile and a great deal of talent. Yet by her early 20s, she found the stresses of being an actress, pitted against the vulnerabilities of her bipolar disorder, were affecting both her life and her career. The struggle became even more difficult when she was in her early 30s, causing her to bow out of a very successful TV series.
