Claim to fame:
David William Harper began his run in The Waltons by appearing with his other TV brothers and sisters in 'The Homecoming'. He then remained with the series, playing Jim Bob Walton, the youngest of the Walton brothers.
Where are they now?
When The Waltons ended in 1982, he continued acting, appearing in The Blue and The Gray, a television mini series. David also returned to play Jim Bob in the three Waltons movies, made in 1982. He appeared in Fletch in 1985, but then disappeared from television altogether.
Even though David has not continued in show business, he does, however, continue to be seen at Waltons functions and other collectible and memorabilia fairs. Fortunately for Waltons fans, David has also returned to the screen in each one of the later special movie editions of The Waltons, produced in 1990's.
