Trivia and Facts

  • Leslie Winston was born in Austin, United States.
  • Leslie Winston’s birth sign is Taurus.
  • Leslie Winston, born May 13, 1956, is an American actress best known for her role as Cindy, Ben Walton’s wife, in the television series The Waltons from 1979 to 1981.
  • Winston rose to notoriety by portraying Cindy, the wife of Ben Walton (played by Eric Scott), in 42 episodes spanning the series’ last three seasons. She makes her début in “The Outsider” (season 7, episode 20), when Ben shocks his family by presenting his new wife, Cindy, who acts as the episode’s eponymous character.
  • Winston returned to The Waltons in four reunion TV movies between 1982 and 1993, reprising her role as Cindy. A Wedding on Walton’s Mountain (1982), Mother’s Day on Walton’s Mountain (1982), A Day for Thanks on Walton’s Mountain (1982), and A Walton Thanksgiving Reunion (1993) are among these films. She has appeared as a guest on episodes such as Quincy, M.E., and L.A. Law.
  • During her tenure on The Waltons, Winston developed a close friendship with Judy Norton and Mary McDonough, who portrayed her sisters-in-law on the show.
  • The trio, affectionately known as “The Three Musketeers,” formed strong bonds on the set. McDonough, who even served as a bridesmaid at Winston’s wedding, emphasizes the genuine familial connection among the cast, describing Winston and Norton as “real sisters” in her autobiography.
  • Winston basically withdrew from performing in 1993. Her choice was motivated in part by a fractured elbow that made her immobile for a year. Her principal motivation for leaving the profession was to concentrate on raising her two girls and spending time with her family. Bob Yannetti, her spouse, works as an assistant TV director.
  • Winston moved her concentration after leaving acting to the less difficult profession of looping and worked on television episodes such as Ally McBeal and Boston Legal. Her spouse, in particular, helmed various episodes of the later series.
