A fanlisting is a site for a particular actress, TV show, etc. that come together to make one big list of fans from across the world. Confused? Head on over to TFL to learn more about them.

John Walton Jr. (John-Boy) is the oldest of the 7 Walton kids. Ever since he was little, he wanted to be a writer. After he graduated from Miss Hunter's high school, he enrolled as a journalism student at Boatwright University. He reported for the Stars & Stripes magazine in London during World War 2 and got listed as missing in action. But he was later found and rescued. He married Janet in the TV movie "A Walton Wedding." John-Boy was first played by Richard Thomas and then later by Robert Wrightman. The character of John-Boy was based on real-life author Earl Hamner.
