Pam Dawber

Pamela Gene Dawber, better known by her stage as Pam Dawber (sometimes known as Dawb), is an actress from the United States. She is most known for her appearances as Mindy McConnell in the American sitcom ‘Mork & Mindy,’ in which she co-starred alongside Robbie Williams as Mork, and Samantha Russell in the film ‘My Sister Sam.’ Dawber was born in Detroit, Michigan, and came to New York City to pursue her modeling career. She eventually transitioned into acting.


Dawber grew raised in a Detroit suburb, going to Goodrich Elementary School and North Farming High School for her elementary and high school education. She later enrolled in Oakland Community College, but she took a break from her studies to pursue modeling jobs. She eventually chose to skip out and pursue modeling full-time.


One of her acquaintances planning a trip to New York suggested she join her and bring her modeling portfolio. She accepted the offer and relocated to New York, where her career took off. Dawber began her modeling career with Wilhelmina Models and subsequently transitioned to an acting career. She studied acting and went on auditions as well as appearing in advertisements on television.

Despite having minimal acting experience and having not auditioned for the part, she landed a role in the film ‘A Wedding’ and then a shockingly large role in ‘Morty and Mindy.’ The play was an instant hit, and both principal actors, Pam Dawber and Robin Williams were cast as stars. She won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Actress in a New Television Program in 1976.

She went on to feature in a few TV movies after the show ended in 1982, and in 1986, she had another hit with the series ‘My Sister Sam.’ Her second win came from the show: the 1987 People’s Choice Awards for Favorite Actress in a New TV Program.

Private Life

Dawber was born to Thelma Dawber and commercial artist Eugene E. Dawber. Leslie, her younger sister, was born with congestive heart disease. Leslie died unexpectedly at the age of 22 in 1976 following open-heart surgery. Dawber sought counseling to help her deal with her sadness and cope with her loss.

Gina Hecht introduced Pam Dawber to Mark Harmon, with whom she married in a private ceremony on March 21, 1987. Sean Thomas Harmon and Ty Christion Harmon are her two sons. Her last major acting jobs were in the late 1990s when she chose to devote more time to her family. The couple keeps their personal lives quiet and is rarely seen in public with their children. They also rarely discuss each other in interviews. They’ve been together for 30 years, and divorce appears to be an afterthought in their relationship.

She had relationships with ski pro-Weems Westfeldt and top model Phil Coccioletti before her marriage. Andy Gibbs and Robbin Williams are two other men with whom she has had affairs. There were speculations that Dawber would be involved in bringing Mork and Mindy to the big screen, but nothing came of it.

Pam’s net worth is estimated to be at $40 million. Despite the fact that she currently does not perform, it is reported that she earned $15,000 per episode when starring in Morty and Mindy.
