Participant BioTRACEY GOLD began her acting career at the age of four when she began working in commercials. She quickly moved on to dozens of parts in television movies and feature films, honing her skills working alongside such legends as Jane Wyman, Bette Davis, Patty Duke and Gena Rowlands. In 1985 Gold was cast in the role of Carol Seaver on the now-legendary television series, "Growing Pains." Following that success, she returned to drama with many TV movies of the week. She portrayed the title character in "For the Love of Nancy" (with Jill Clayburgh), which was a personal triumph for her, as the movie was based on the main character's struggle with a severe eating disorder. Gold has been unafraid to speak publicly about her own battle with anorexia nervosa, which began at age 19 and almost took her life. Through her involvement with therapy and an eating disorder program, she was able to recover. Rather than retreat from the subject of eating disorders, she has, in the intervening years, spoken out publicly about it. She is currently the host of a new reality show on Lifetime entitled "Starving Secrets with Tracey Gold," where she mentors women publicly through their own fights with the disease. Gold was introduced to her future husband, Roby Marshall, by her television mom from "Growing Pains," Joanna Kerns. They reside in Southern California, where they raise their four sons, Sage, Bailey, Aiden and Dylan.
