Kristin Vigard

Kristen Vigard (born May 15, 1963) is an American actress and singer. Vigard made her acting debut at the age of 6 playing a carrot in a production starring Holly Woodlawn, Candy Darling and Jackie Curtis. Vigard continued performing in theatre, appearing in productions with Ruby Dee, Joanne Woodward and Shirley Knight. She also became one of the first clients to be signed to the Children's Division of the Ford Modeling Agency, along with Brooke Shields and Ricky Schroder. In 1976, she created the title role in the musical Annie at the Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam, Connecticut. However, the producers soon decided that Vigard's genuinely sweet interpretation was not tough enough for the street-smart character. After a week of performances, Vigard was replaced by Andrea McArdle, who played one of the orphans. Vigard later went on to become McArdle's Broadway understudy. In 1977, Vigard played "Crissy" in the short-lived revival of Hair. Though the show met with mostly negative reviews, Vigard received some of the best notices.
