When Lynda became pregnant during the filming of the seventh season, the camera often shielded her body so viewers couldn't see that she was carrying a baby, and her absences were explained that she was on assignment in Eastern Europe.
“Mission Impossible” was a popular American drama, airing from 1966-73. The show will always be remembered for its opening: IMF leader Jim Phelps (Peter Graves) listening to an agent on a tape recorder explaining the mission. The voice always told Phelps, “Your mission, should you decide to accept it...” and the agent concluded, “This tape will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Jim.”
“I always thought of 'Mission Impossible' as a very Republican show,” Lynda said. “I was more than okay with that, because that's pretty much where I was politically.”
Lynda, who missed the last seven episodes of the final season to take maternity leave, never took herself too seriously.
