Kim Darby (born Deborah Zerby on July 8, 1947 in Los Angeles, California) is an American actress, daughter of professional dancers John and Inga Zerby. She began acting at age 15 and has appeared in many films and television shows. Her first appearance was as a dancer in the 1963 film Bye Bye Birdie.
