About Natalie Trundy (1940 – )
Born Natalie Campana August 5, 1940 Natalie was the elder of two daughters born to Bostonian parents. As a child, she modeled and took dance classes.

Natalie made her TV debut as a singing and dancing Little Red Riding Hood in a Fred Waring live broadcast. She then moved into radio and commercial work and made her Broadway debut at age 13, playing Janet Blair's daughter in Kiss and Tell.

At age 15, Natalie Trundy made her debut in the Italian film Montecarlo (1956) which she followed up with The Careless Years (1957).

In 1963, Natalie was struck by a car, and suffered a severe back injury that disrupted the momentum of her acting career. She spent a year recovering in a back brace, after which she traveled to London, where she lived with roommate Vanessa Mitchell-Clyde. It was through Vanessa that Natalie would be introduced to her husband, producer Arthur Jacobs. Without consulting Natalie, Vanessa arranged for the three of them to meet for lunch the next day at the Claridge Restaurant. The attraction was immediate between the now grown-up Natalie and Arthur and, after an intense courtship, they were married in 1968.

Shortly after Arthur began production on the first of the five apes movies, Planet Of The Apes. Although Natalie did not appear in Planet of the Apes, her husband did find a part for her in each of the four subsequent ape films: Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970), Escape from Planet of the Apes (1971), Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972), and Battle for the Planet of the Apes. (1973).

Arthur Jacobs went on to cast his wife in another of his projects. Natalie played the character Mrs. Loftus in Jacob's musical adaptation of Mark Twain's novel, Huckleberry Finn. It was while filming Huckleberry Finn that Natalie's husband suffered a sudden heart attack and died in their home in Hollywood.

After Arthur died, Natalie assumed production duties of his film company, APJAC productions.
