The children characters in the JAG television series were every bit as professional as their adult counterparts and were usually more than mere “scene dressing.” Many of them carried substantial plot significance and often had extensive speaking roles.
This scrapbook is divided into two sections: Major Cast and Supporting Cast. The Major Cast section is further divided into child actors playing the “childhood” of the major cast in “flashbacks”; and, those playing the children of the main characters on a recurring basis.
The Supporting Cast section is sub-divided into those children who appeared in more than one show, like Josh Pendry and Mikey Roberts, and those whose stories were for one television episode only.
