Audiences fell in love with Barbara Feldon in her starring role on Get Smart as Agent 99, the smart and brassy young agent who was always one step ahead of her partner Maxwell Smart. Feldon could have dined out on the role of Agent 99 forever, but throughout her career she found ways to reinvent herself while living a normal life.

Now, Feldon lives in New York City and works as a writer. She has a book about living alone under her belt and a series of articles. It’s good to see Agent 99 still out there doing good work.
