Barbara grew up in her hometown and attended Bethel Park High School, where she was a part of the Pittsburgh Playhouse, including taking acting lessons. Following her matriculation, Barbara enrolled at Carnegie Institute of Technology, and obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in drama.

Barbara’s career started in the late ‘50s as a model, beginning with a couple of commercials, including the one for “Top Brass”, which led to her acting debut in the TV series “East Side/West Side” (1964). This was followed by support roles in such TV series as “Flipper” (1964), “12 O’Clock High” (1965), “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” (1965), until she was cast in the lead role of Agent 99 in the Mel Brooks and Buck Henry sitcom “Get Smart” (1965-1970). The series put her on the Hollywood map, and also increased her net worth by a large margin.

While the show lasted, she also featured in several other productions, including the lead role in Delbert Mann’s romantic comedy “Fitzwilly” (1967), next to Dick Van Dyke and John McGiver.

Following the end of the sitcom, Barbara appeared in several television films, including the “Getting Away from It All” (1972), and “Playmates” (1972), and continued to feature in films during the ‘70s, such as in “Smile” (1975), “A Guide for the Married Woman” (1978), and “Before and After” (1979), among others, which also improved her wealth.

During the ‘80s she wasn’t quite active on screen, but still recorded several appearances, including the lead role in the film “Children of Divorce” (1980), and reprising the role of Agent 99 in the film “Get Smart, Again” (1989).

Her career declined slowly during the ‘90s, and she made only brief appearances in such TV series as “Cheers” (1991), “Mad About You” (1993), and “Emily of New Moon” (1998), and she last appeared on screen in the film “The Last Request” (2006). However, Barbara still appears frequently in off-Broadway plays, keeping her acting career alive.

Apart from acting, she is also an accomplished writer; she published her first book in 2003, entitled “Living Alone and Loving It”, the sales of which also increased her net worth.

Regarding her personal life, Barbara has been married twice, firstly to Lucien Verdoux-Feldon – hence her surname – from 1958 until 1967, then a year later she married Burt Nodella; the couple divorced in 1979.

1I was a very loving and good friends with Don Adams in the years after Get Smart (1965) and until he died. We never really bonded during the show except as characters. He was preoccupied with the role. We just thought of ourselves as congenial business colleagues. Yes. There was an extra sweetness about them, a sense of nostalgia. And you never know when something will turn into art. I don't think it's pretentious to say it was art, maybe pop art. Every element worked. It was crafted like a comic strip, in a way. Everything had to pay off with a laugh. Don would say 'there are too many words' or 'the set up isn't right'. There was no improvisation. There is a sort of poetry to writing comedy. Poetry is very crafted. You can't have too many words. It needs compression. It has to be spare, just the right number of words. And Don's instincts were infallible. We never rehearsed. I think we got more skilled as time went on. I did. At first, I had one foot in my little girl's self and one foot in my grown-up self. You can see it in my character. By the end, I had both feet in my adult self. 99 still had an adoration for Maxwell Smart, but with more authority. (on her professional on- and off-screen friendship with Don Adams, who played Maxwell Smart)
2I wish I could say this was a wonderful script.....It was like what I would call mind candy and it just got rid of the best perfectly good 2 hours of your life. (on her part in the film, Let's Switch! (1975).
3"There's not a day when somebody doesn't smile and say, 'Oh, you're Agent 99.' I like being in a world that regards me in a friendly way." Interview with Toby Kahn, 1983.
