JoAnna Cameron

JoAnna Cameron - The Secrets of IsisJoanna Kara Cameron, sometimes listed as JoAnna Cameron, (born September 20, 1951) is an American actress who is best known for her starring role in the children's TV program The Secrets of Isis. She was born in Aspen, Colorado and was raised in rural northern Colorado. She attended the University of California, Riverside where she earned a degree in Marketing. While at college Cameron became friends with Linda Hope, the adopted daughter of Bob Hope. Through this connection she was introduced to Bob Hope who "discovered" Cameron, casting her in the film How to Commit Marriage in 1969. In 1975 Cameron was cast in her best-known role as the Egyptian-themed super-hero Isis, in the Saturday morning children's TV show The Shazam!/Isis Hour. When the character proved to be popular with children (and many adult viewers![4]), Isis was spun off as a separate series titled The Secrets of Isis. Cameron played a young High School teacher named Andrea Thomas who discovers an enchanted amulet while in Egypt. The amulet, which originally belonged to the ancient queen Hatshepsut, bestows the supposed powers of the goddess Isis on her when she invokes them by uttering the phrase, "O mighty Isis!" These powers include super strength and speed, the power to fly, and telekinesis, all of which she uses to fight crime. The Secrets of Isis ran for two seasons from September 6, 1975 to September 3, 1977. Twenty-two episodes were produced and Isis also appeared in three episodes of the related Saturday morning super-hero drama Shazam!. Despite the show's popularity it was not renewed for a third season. The character of Isis later appeared in a cartoon called Tarzan and the Super 7 but Cameron was not asked to voice the part.
