Former Little House on the Prairie star Melissa Gilbert is officially
the new president of the Screen Actors Guild.
It took two elections, but Gilbert beat former prime time star Valerie Harper
for the second time in less than three months. Gilbert received 57 percent of
the vote to Harper's 34 percent, according to SAG figures.
In January, SAG officials opted to have a second election for the top three
officer spots after irregularities in the voting process were discovered.
Veteran actor Elliott Gould was elected recording secretary and Kent McCord
(Adam 12) is the new SAG treasurer.
