The late great Michael Landon's daughter Leslie is a former actress who seemed to follow in her father's footsteps for quite some time. She starred on Little house on the Prairie as "Etta Plum."

Leslie Landon is one of Michael Landon's 9 children. She was born on October 11th, 1962 to Michael Landon and Marjorie Lynn Noe in Los Angeles, California. She decided to follow in her father's footsteps by giving the acting world a try. Her most notable role happened to be in the same show as her father actually. Leslie starred as schoolteacher "Etta Plum" in Little House on the Prairie from 1982 to 1984.
