Dana Plato (1964–1999) was an American actress best known for her role as Kimberly Drummond in the 1980s TV sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes.” Born in Maywood, California, Plato’s acting career began at a young age when she appeared in various television commercials. Her breakthrough came with “Diff’rent Strokes,” where she played the character of Kimberly, the wholesome older sister in a mixed-race family, which resonated with audiences.

However, Plato faced personal struggles, including substance abuse and legal issues, which affected her career. Her departure from “Diff’rent Strokes” in 1984 marked a challenging period in her life. Despite occasional appearances in films and TV shows, she found it difficult to break away from the typecasting associated with her famous role.

Her life serves as a cautionary tale about the difficulties faced by child actors in the entertainment industry.
