About Joan Prather

Joan Prather was a rising star in the 1970s, known for her roles in popular films such as "The Devil's Rain" and "The White Buffalo." Born on October 17, 1950, in Dallas, Texas, Prather began her career as a model before transitioning to acting.

Prather's breakthrough role came in 1975 when she starred alongside William Shatner and Tom Skerritt in the horror film "The Devil's Rain." The film, which also featured John Travolta in his first major role, was a box office success and helped to establish Prather as a rising talent in Hollywood.

In 1977, Prather starred in the western film "The White Buffalo" alongside Charles Bronson. The film, which was directed by J. Lee Thompson, was a critical and commercial success, further cementing Prather's status as a rising star.

Despite her early success, Prather's career began to slow down in the 1980s. She continued to act in smaller roles in films such as "The Wild Women of Chastity Gulch" and "The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking," but never achieved the same level of success as she did in the 1970s.

In recent years, Prather has largely retired from acting and has focused on her personal life. She has been married to her husband, John Rayburn, since 1981 and has two children.

Despite her relatively short career, Joan Prather left a lasting impact on Hollywood and remains a beloved figure among fans of 1970s cinema.
