Jennifer and Michael Landon’s relationship

The actress was very young when her father Michael died. They are noted to have had a close relationship.

“He was incredibly fun and very funny,” Jennifer said in an interview a few years ago with Smashing Interviews Magazine. “He was all of those things that you’ve heard. I had a lot of respect for him. He didn’t really ever have to get upset because you weren’t really going to do anything to piss him off, which was nice. It makes for a very calm household, I think, when parents have very clear roles with their kids about what is expected and what’s not and then everything just goes smoothly.”
