Early life

Eggert was born in Glendale, California. Her mother, Gina Duncan, was a British-born talent agent, and her father, Rolf Eggert, was a German-born canning-company executive. [5] Eggert's quest for stardom started when her mother entered her in beauty contests. At age five, Eggert was Miss Universe in the petite division. [4] An agent saw her and offered her parents a role for her in a Johnson's baby shampoo commercial. [4]


In 1980, at age eight, Eggert landed a role in the film Rich and Famous , opposite Jacqueline Bisset and Candice Bergen, playing Bergen's character's young daughter.

In January 1987, she starred on the situation comedy Charles in Charge as Jamie Powell. In 1989, she hosted the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards with Wil Wheaton.

I don't think that I saved his life, I just think that I was there for him." [16]

On April 21, 2015, she appeared on the television series Botched for a breast reduction. [17]
