Second hour: Four-time Emmy Award-winning actress Michael Learned (The Waltons, Nurse, Life Interrupted) talks to Ed about the genuine love that Waltons creator Earl Hamner had for his mother and his family, and how grateful she is for her experience on The Waltons because it gave her a second family. Michael will be honored by the Family Film Awards with their annual Legend Award on Thursday, Sept. 27, plus she recently completed production on the short film Second Acts. She will also reprise the role of Miss Daisy in a stage production of Driving Miss Daisy in January 2019 at the Laguna Playhouse in Laguna Beach, California.
