Cynthia Pepper, actress and author of “Pigtails, Presley & Pepper: A Hollywood Memoir,” lives in Las Vegas and travels to speak about her entertainment career including her memorable movie role and friendship with Elvis Presley.
Pepper appeared in 1964 as PFC Midge Riley with Elvis in the film “Kissin’ Cousins.”
She also appeared in several television documentaries about Presley’s life and her own experiences with him. While she has fond memories of Elvis, who passed away on Aug. 16, 1977, Pepper has an extensive career that began when she appeared with Cary Grant at the age of 11. As a teenager, she was cast as the romantic interest of one of the sons in the 1960s sitcom “My Three Sons” and would return for the series finale.
She would also star in her sitcom, “Margie,” in the role of the Roaring ‘20s teenager Margie Clayton, who always wore pigtails.
