Bern Nadette Stanis

Known for her role as Thelma Evans on the legendary sitcom Good Times, Bern Nadette Stanis is still considered a sex symbol to men and boys who came of age in the 1970s. Her hilarious sibling rivalry with brother J.J. Evans (played by Jimmy Walker) was unforgettable and their never-ending banter of insults was an integral part of the show’s dialogue and responsible for its five-year run. Stanis is still acting, making appearances on sitcoms and having a situational comedy series of her own in the works.
