Karen Valentine (née le 25 mai 1947) est une actrice américaine. Elle est surtout connue pour son rôle d'enseignante idéaliste Alice Johnson dans la série télévisée de comédie ABC Room 222 de 1969 à 1974, pour laquelle elle a remporté le Primetime Emmy Award dans la catégorie Comédienne dans une série humoristique en 1970 et a reçu un Golden Globe. En 1971, elle a été nommée au prix. Elle est ensuite apparue dans Karen (1975), une sitcom de courte durée , et a joué un rôle de premier plan dans les films Disney Hot Lead and Cold Feet (1978) et The North Avenue Irregulars (1979).


Early life
Valentine grew up in Sebastopol, California and won a spot representing California at the Miss Teenage America pageant, where she was awarded the Talent Award. Valentine was Miss Sonoma County and Top 10 at Miss California, state finals to Miss America. When Ed Sullivan saw her act (where she would comically dance in a flamboyant costume while lip-synching to Eydie Gormé's "Blame it on the Bossa Nova"), he was quoted as saying, "I want that girl on my show."

In 1966-1967, she started her television career as "The Resident Dream Girl" on The Dream Girl of 1967, replacing Beverly Adams from the first weekday broadcast opposite hosts Dick Stewart and Wink Martindale, and during that time she appeared on another Chuck Barris show, The Dating Game.

In 1969, Valentine won her breakthrough role as a new teacher on the ABC television series Room 222 with Lloyd Haynes and Michael Constantine. She was discovered by Gene Reynolds, the director of Room 222, who saw her lip-synching in rehearsal and saw that she was funny. She was nominated twice for an Emmy and once for a Golden Globe, winning an Emmy in 1970 for Outstanding Actress in a Supporting Role.

Valentine later starred in her own television series, Karen, in 1975. She played the title role in the critically acclaimed true story Muggable Mary, Street Cop and was Gidget in the film Gidget Grows Up, as well as many other movies for television. Valentine was a semi-regular on The Hollywood Squares from 1971 to 1977 on both NBC-TV and in syndication, often trading quips with Paul Lynde. She guest-starred on many series, including Starsky and Hutch, Baretta, McMillan & Wife, Cybill and Murder, She Wrote and multiple episodes of The Love Boat and Love, American Style.

Her feature films include The North Avenue Irregulars, Hot Lead and Cold Feet and The Power Within.

Valentine continues to work in television and on stage. She co-starred with John Larroquette in a 2004 Hallmark Channel TV movie, Wedding Daze. She has starred on stage in many productions, including Romantic Comedy on Broadway and National Tour, Breaking Legs Off-Broadway and National Tour, and the Los Angeles production of Steel Magnolias.

Personal life
Karen Valentine has been married twice. Her first marriage was in 1969 to Carl MacLaughlin; they divorced in 1973. Since 1977 she has been married to musician and Emmy Award–winning songwriter Gary Verna. She does not have any children.
