Hello Judith,
My name is Kim Oldfield and I was wondering who Victor French birth mother was. It looks like my mother may have been that person but don't know. Her name was Jayne Sells and would have been 15 at the time she gave birth. Please let me know if you do know if Victor was adopted or not. Victor was at our home in L.A.and use to visit my mother when I was about 13. We lived in Granada Hills at that time and then moved. Any help is very helpful as I do not know their connection. I spoke to Julie Cobb but she knew nothing as they were not married very long. Thank you, Kim

Hi there. I was married to Vic for 15 years. Vic and I have 3 children, Identical twin girls, Tracy and Kelly and a Son Victor Allen. Our son was Vic`s standin until his death in 1989. We remained friends even though we both remarried. He was a really nice man and a brillant actor and he didn`t start the Company of Angels. and I don`t recall ever seeing Leonard Nemoy over there. The director of the theater when Vic joined was Bob ELenstein. and Sally Kellerman was there, Wright King was a member and Vic Tayback was there. Just to name a few. I hope I`ve cleared up some of the misconceptions for you guys. You got any question, feel free to email me. Judi

I met Victor along w/Michael Landon (his close pal)at the Forum Boxing club....we kept running into each other and soon became good friends. This man was the real deal; great actorreal deal as well as a great actor!! Miss U Vic!

I was really surprised to find that Victor was in so many movies. I only new him from "Little House on the Prarie" and "Highway to Heaven" I saw Victor many times at the "Forum" and a Kareoke Club down the street from NBC studios. I got his autograph on a Stroh`s Fight Night program along with Jimmy Lennon Sr.s just before both of them passed away. (1985) I really liked Victor. He seemed to be a good guy.
