Mouseketeer, Actress. Born Bonita Lynn Fields, she was 12 when she was offered a prized slot on "The Mickey Mouse Club" for its third season in 1957-58 after an audition in Burbank, California that drew 5,000 hopeful children. Although she started as one of the background dancers, she eventually became a standout because of her agile dancing. After leaving the show she performed in live shows at Disneyland and appeared in the televison serials "The New Adventures of Spin and Marty" starring Tim Considine, and "Annette" which featured fellow Disney alumni, Annette Funicello. Later in her career as Lynn Fields, she appeared in a New York City Ballet production of the "Nutcracker Suite" at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and performed on Broadway in the mid-1960s in "Kelly" and "Half a Sixpence" and had small parts in the films 'Bye Bye Birdie' (1963), 'Funny Girl' (1968) and 'Sweet Charity' (1969). She also ran dance studios, including the Lynn Fields School of Tap and Performing Arts in Santa Monica. In 1980 she returned to Disneyland to take part in Mouseketeer reunion shows and appeared that year in a televised 25th anniversary show for the "Mickey Mouse Club". Fields, who was a heavy smoker earlier in her life, was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2010.  (bio by: Louis Mata)
