Kristin Nelson, also Kristin Nelson Tinker, (born Sharon Kristin Harmon on June 25, 1945) is an American primitive painter, actor, and author. She was married to actor/musician Rick Nelson. Kristin Nelson, born Sharon Kristin Harmon, is the daughter of American football player Tom Harmon and actress Elyse Knox. Actor Mark Harmon is her brother and actress Kelly Harmon is her sister. Following her marriage to Rick Nelson in 1963, Harmon joined the Nelson family television show The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet as a regular cast member, first appearing in the episode, "Rick's Wedding Ring". In 1965, she co-starred with Nelson in the romantic comedy, Love and Kisses, in which they demonstrate the troubles of a young couple of school age who get married—an "inspired casting," according to one critic. Subsequently, she played Officer Jim Reed's wife Jean on Adam-12, guest-starred on other series and appeared in a few theatrical films, including The Resurrection of Broncho Billy, which won an Academy Award for best live action short film. She retired from acting in 1982 following Liar's Moon.
