Karen Grassle speaks out on heated dispute with Michael Landon on ‘Little House on the Prairie’ set

Karen Grassle became a legendary television actress following her appearance as Caroline Ingalls on Little House on the Prairie. The show, as well as its various roles, are still to this day iconic. Not only that, but people all around the world can and do continue to watch the show.

Several actors and actresses have spoken about the wonderful atmosphere on set while filming Little House. By all accounts, Michael Landon was very keen on everyone having a great experience, as well as everyone getting to leave the set and go home on time.

However, Karen Grassle recently spoke out to describe a whole different kind of atmosphere, at least where she and Michael Landon were concerned.

Little House on the Prairie sure is a legendary show, and is still aired in over 100 countries. In actual fact, the show has never been completely off the air since it premiered in 1974.

The historical western drama – about the Ingalls family living on a farm in Plum Creek, near Walnut Grove, Minnesota – helped some of its actors become household names through their appearances.

Karen Grassel – Caroline Ingalls

Michael Landon is the one most people probably think about, but sadly, he passed away in 1991.

Among the other actors, Melissa Gilbert and Karen Grassel both became icons through Little House. For me, it’s hard to choose a favorite among so many great performances.

Karen Grassel’s life changed when she got the part as Caroline Ingalls, AKA “Ma”, on Little House on the Prairie.

Born on February 25, 1942 in California, Grassel completed her college education at the University of California. She then traveled to London to study at the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts.

She did plenty of theater work with the Shakespeare company, but unfortunately things didn’t quite add up when it came to her finances.

“I had spent a year in England, working with a Shakespeare company and teaching, and came back to the States flat broke,” she told Closer Weekly.
