Lisa Lucas



Lisa Lucas is a former child actress best known for her role as "Addie Mills" in the Emmy-winning Christmas television special, The House Without a Christmas Tree. It first aired on CBS-TV in December 1972, spawned three holiday-based sequels from 1973–1976 with the same cast, The Thanksgiving Treasure (also listed elsewhere as The Holiday Treasure) (1973), The Easter Promise (1975) and Addie and The King of Hearts (1976). USA Today called A House Without a Christmas Tree "beautifully acted" and the Spartanburg Herald-Journal called it a "Christmas treasure" and said it was full of heartwarming moments, especially when Addie gives away the Christmas tree she wins, or finds the star belonging to her mother. Lucas also played Shirley MacLaine's daughter in the 1977 film The Turning Point, and Jill Clayburgh's daughter in 1978 film An Unmarried Woman. In its review of An Unmarried Woman, The Washington Post said the part of the daughter was "smartly embodied by sharp-featured young actress Lisa Lucas" and Lucas was nominated for the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Supporting Actress. Lucas had parts in the 1976 PBS series "The Adams Chronicles" and the 1980 television film A Perfect Match. In 2002, Lucas appeared in a Denver stage production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
