American actress, best known for playing Joanie Bradford on comedy-drama TV series Eight Is Enough, which aired from 1977 until 1981 on ABC.

Walters was, by several years, the oldest of the eight actors playing the Bradford children, even though her character, Joanie Bradford, was the third-oldest child in the family. Walters is six months older than Betty Buckley (born 3 July 1947), who played her character's stepmother. Walters' first screen role was as "Sheila Grove" in 1973's The Harrad Experiment.

Walters made guest appearances on a number of other television series through the 1980s, such as Cheers and Highway to Heaven, as well as on two Eight Is Enough reunion specials, but she has not acted on television since 1993.

Walters has since worked as an environmentalist, acted in plays, directed theatre productions, and currently is in charge of film acquisitions for the subscription-based film service Ironweed Films.
