2016 SPECIAL GUEST'S

The Munsters Star

PAT PRIEST

In 1964, in the middle of the initial season of The Munsters TV show, Beverly Owen decided to leave the series, and the part of Marilyn Munster was up for grabs. Marilyn, of course, was the "plain one of the family", the normal one in a family of "monsters". Pat got the part, and made her initial appearance on the last episode of the first season. She remained in the role until the series ended in 1966. (The film, Munster Go Home, released that same year, featured Debbie Watson in the role.)
Her appearance with Elvis came a year later. In Easy Come, Easy Go, Pat plays Dina Bishop, the "bad girl" who gets in Elvis' way while he and Dodie Marshall search for treasure. Pat's memories of Elvis and that time were fond ones, although she regrets one thing: She bought Elvis' Cadillac (a 1967 El Dorado), and later traded it for a Pontiac! "If I had it today, I could retire!", she says. Although not fully retired yet, (she occasionally makes TV appearances) Pat and her second husband, Fred Hansing, are settled in Haley, Idaho. Pat still keeps in touch with Butch Patrick from The Munsters, and with the series running regularly now on Nick at Nite, they make more frequent public appearances at conventions and autograph shows. And is looking forward to her appearance her at Sands/Reno Comic con!
