Katie Saylor is a former American actress. Adopted as a baby by fashion designer Larry Aldrich, Saylor was born and raised in Connecticut and studied with the American Theater Wing/Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City and at the Shelton Actors Lab in San Francisco. After beginning her acting career in off-Broadway theatre, Saylor relocated to Los Angeles in 1973 and worked primarily as a B movie actress prior to landing the female lead in the NBC-TVscience fiction series The Fantastic Journey which she began filming December 26 1976. The Fantastic Journey premiered on February 3 1977: Saylor's character: Lianna, "daughter of an Atlantean father and an extraterrestrial mother" was introduced in the second episode and appeared regularly up to and including episode #7 which marked Saylor's final evident screen appearance as she was not featured in the eighth episode of The Fantastic Journey which ended the series' regular run and was also absent from a final episode which was belatedly broadcast June 16 1977. Saylor married attorney Harvey Strassman in November 1976. Strassman, incidentally, represented Noah Dietrich in business manager Dietrich's lawsuit against his long-time employer Howard Hughes.  It has been alleged that Saylor died of cancer in 1991, but her father's 2001 obituary in the New York Times indicates that at the time, she was a surviving daughter. Also, there are current reports that Harvey Strassman and Katie Strassman reside in the Studio City neighborhood of Los Angeles.
