Near the end of season two and into season three, viewers of B. J. and the Bear met Callie, a one of the new beautiful truckers B. J. must hire when he cannot find experienced drivers. For Linda McCullough, it would be one of the highlights of her career – but she was not done yet and still pursues the arts, though in a different way. Catch up with her here.

Linda McCullough was born in Los Angeles, California on February 12, 1954. Her time in the spotlight began with the 1975 series Welcome Back Kotter, a sitcom led by Gabe Kaplan that also starred John Travolta. McCullough appeared in three episodes as the character of Sally. Then, her acting momentum increased.

1978 was a turning point for McCullough when she landed the role of Callie for a couple of seasons of B. J. and the Bear. This would take up the majority of her time in the spotlight and the only other project she would work on would be voice work for Team Knight Rider, an attempted reboot of the original and beloved Knight Rider series, doing voice work for Sky One.

Along the way, McCullough also met, fell in love with, and married Laurence Lau, a fellow California native and actor known for performing in soap operas as well as on stage. The two were married from 1982 to 1982 before splitting up. But McCullough has continued to work on her craft and even expanded her resume into new areas of the arts.
