Kim Darby was raised in her hometown by her parents Inga and Jon Zerby – both of them were professional dancers widely recognized as the “Dancing Zerbies” or “Dancing Zerbys”. Thus, as a little girl, she began performing with her parents under the stage name Derby Zerby. When she grew up, she decided to rename herself from Deborah Zerby to Kim Darby, as she thought that her real name wasn’t good enough for success in the world of acting.
Thus, parallel with dancing, Kim began acting as a 15-year-old girl, and her debut appearance as a dancer and actress was in the 1963 film “Bye Bye Birdie”, which was in the same year followed by the role of Judy Wheeler in the TV series “Mr. Novak”, which lasted until 1965, on the NBC Channel. Her breakout role came in 1969, when she featured in the film “True Grit”, directed by John Wayne, which added a considerable amount to her net worth, and increased her popularity too.
The next decade only increased the total number of her roles, as she appeared in such films as “The Grissom Gang” (1971) in the role of Barbara Blandish, “Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark” (1973) playing Sally Farnham, and in such TV series as “Rich Man, Poor Man” (1976) portraying Virginia Calderwood. In 1979, she was chosen for the role of Wendy/Sarah Curtis in the TV series “The Love Boat”, appearing regular until 1982. Afterwards, Kim featured in a number of small roles, until in 1995 she was cast in the film “Halloween: The Curse Of Michael Myers”, as Debra Strode. All of these appearances added a lot to her net worth.
To speak further of her accomplishments in the entertainment industry as an actress, she featured also in the 2000 film “Newsbreak”, “You Are So Going to Hell!” (2004), and “Cold Ones”, from 2007. Most recently, she starred in the TV series “Perception” (2014). Her net worth was certainly rising.
When it comes to her personal life, Kim Darby has been married four times firstly to actor James Stacy (1968-1969), with whom she has a daughter named Heather Elias, known for being an actress. Her second marriage was with William Tennant(1970 only), and thirdly to James Westmoreland. Later, she married to Jack La Rue Jr.(1978-81).
