Angela Cartwright is the daughter of an Irish mother and a Southern California boy. She grew up in segregated California and was inspired by her mother’s teachings, “We are all sons and daughters of the sun.” Angela also enjoyed the art of drawing and painting. As a child, she was often forced to wash windows while her brothers went on picnics. When she was nine years old, her family moved to Washington, D. C., where her father became a surgeon. While her mother took up acting, Angela moved out with her younger sister to Los Angeles.
When her family settled in the Washington, D. C. area, Angela was inspired by the visual culture she found there. She attended the University of California – Los Angeles, where she pursued a degree in drama. After graduation, she worked in the fashion and music scenes, traveling to New York City and appearing on TV shows such as The Dating Game and Everybody Loves Raymond. While in Los Angeles, Angela met and married her first husband, George Mandrake, a musician awho was equally taken by the visual culture of the city and the drama industry. They had two children and raised them as actors. In turn, Mandrake made contributions to the world of cinema with films such as Saturday Night Fever and Cagney and later went on to work on the musical The Sound of Music (which won seven Academy Awards).

In the late 1960s, after her marriage to George, Angela Cartwright decided to pursue her acting passion, which had been sparked by her time in Los Angeles. She began working with the director John Sayles, whom she had worked with during her studies in Washington, D.C. Before they could begin filming the film adaptation of The Sound of Music, Cartwright’s brother Peter persuaded her to consider making a film of her own, naming it The Princess of Mars. It was intended as a vehicle for Angela Cartwright to hone her talent, and although the movie never received distribution in the United States, it was successful in France and England.
The Princess of Mars, which was intended to be released in springtime, was delayed for a number of months before it finally came out in early summer. The delays were caused by a dispute between the producers and the studio over the length of the film. The producers wanted more than the original brief given to them, which was fifty-two minutes long. The Princess of Mars, which featured Cartwright in the lead role, was panned by critics. It only managed to garner an okay rating at the box office, despite its highly critical acclaim.
Two years later, after The Princess of Mars was released on DVD, an animated version of the same story was released as an additional feature. This time around, Cartwrights was back in the lead role, playing the role of Ginger. Although the film did not receive a second release, it did receive an addition of another episode. In this release, Cartwright played the character of Ginger and this time around received an additional two episodes. By this time, Angela Cartwright’s own name was being linked to the role of Ginger, with fans even speculating that she may be getting ready to tackle the role of Gingerbread Girl someday.
With her upbringing in Yorkshire, England, and her subsequent travels to Los Angeles, California, Angela Cartwright is a woman who has experienced much hardship and the heartbreak of many experiences. Throughout her varied acting career, she has gone from a nobody to an A-list celebrity overnight. Her notable TV roles include appearances on Absolutely Deserted, Welcome Back Kotter, Roseanne, Gossip Girl, The Firm, and countless others.
