What is actor Richard Thomas doing these days?
—Gerald Maynard, Henderson, Texas

Thomas, who recently relocated his family to New York, just finished a run on Broadway in A Naked Girl on the Appian Way with actress Jill Clayburgh, and he recently acted in a TV movie, Wild Hearts, for the Hallmark Channel, to air early this year. He's remained steadily busy since ending his Emmy-winning run as John Boy on The Waltons in 1981. "I loved doing The Waltons. It was a very special time," says Thomas, now 54, a father of four grown children from his first marriage, and two grown stepdaughters and a 9-year-old son from his second marriage.
