'M*A*S*H': Where Are They Now?
Kellye Nakahara (Lieutenant Kellye Yamato)
Nurse Kellye was the likable, sometimes outspoken nurse at the 4077th who befriended both Radar and Charles. Although Kellye Nakahara appeared in more than 160 episodes of the series, her most notable moment was the time her character confronted Hawkeye for chasing all the nurses -- except her.
"M*A*S*H" was Nakahara's first professional acting gig, and she continued pursuing an acting career when the show ended. She made it to the big screen in films like "Clue" and "Doctor Dolittle," and made appearances on TV shows such as "Hunter" and "Growing Pains." Her most recent TV work was providing the voice of Yak on "The Wild Thornberrys" in 2000.
These days, she spends most of her time painting watercolors under her married name, Kellye Wallett. She is active in the arts community in Pasadena, California, where she has done exhibitions. Her work has been commissioned for the Democratic National Convention, as well as the Fairfax High School 75th Diamond Jubilee. In 2011, she was a grand honorary chair of the SoCal Cherry Blossom Festival. She and her husband, David, have two children and four grandchildren.
