Allison “Alley” Mills (Bean) is best known for her role as the mother, Norma Arnold in The Wonder Years. With the show getting its own reboot, you may be wondering what Alley has been up to in recent years. She continues to act and is now 70 years old.

Alley was born in 1951 in Chicago. She was likely drawn to television because her father was television executive Ted Mills. Her stepmother was also an actress named Genevieve. She got her big break starring opposite the great Martin Short in The Associates.

Some of her well-known roles were in Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman as Dr. Quinn’s sister. In addition to The Wonder Years, she’s starred in Yes, Dear, Hill Street Blues, and more. In 2018, Alley said that The Wonder Years ended due to a sexual harassment lawsuit against show stars Fred Savage and Jason Hervey. At the time she said, “When we shot the series finale, which was in Whittier, nobody knew whether or not ‘The Wonder Years’ was going to be renewed. That’s because of a completely ridiculous sexual-harassment suit that was going on against Fred Savage, who is the least offensive, most wonderful, sweet human being that ever walked the face of the Earth.”
