Barbara Feldon then and now: See the 'Get Smart' actress today at 86

Gorgeous as ever!

"Get Smart" actress Barbara Feldon, who rose to fame in the 1960s alongside Don Adams in the classic secret agent sitcom, looked lovely on June 21 at Supanova Comic Con. Now 86 years old, Feldon is still rocking her signature face-framing brunette bangs.

The blue-eyed beauty is a Pittsburgh native who began pursuing a Hollywood career after graduating from Carnegie Mellon University. Her breakout role as Agent 99 marked one of the first dynamic, powerful female characters to hit TV screens in America.

Although she continued to perform on stage and screen through the 20th century, Feldon would eventually turn her focus to writing. She's been published in multiple outlets, and she wrote a book in 2003 titled "Living Alone and Loving It: A Guide to Relishing the Solo Life."

Decades after their shared sitcom years came to an end, Feldon occasionally reunited with Adams. The co-stars attended the TV Land Awards in 2003, where Feldon was photographed sweetly kissing him on the cheek, and they also appeared at an official "Get Smart" reunion event the same year. Adams died in 2005 at 82 years old.
