As we mentioned above, her career kicked off at a young age. As a teen she appeared on The Danny Kaye Show which led to roles on My Three Sons, The Virginian, Gunsmoke, and The Partridge Family.
Since then, she’s appeared in a variety of projects including Bridge to Terabithia, Stephen King's It, The Kennedys of Massachusetts, Smallville and Stand by Your Man. She’s also starred in movies such as Cat People, Cross My Heart, Foolin' Around, Imaginary Crimes, A Futile and Stupid Gesture and Blow the Man Down.
O’Toole also has a lot of crossover with Tim Matheson (who plays Doc in Virgin River). “I met him when he did a movie [Almost Summer] with my then boyfriend Bruno Kirby, and that’s when we first met,” she told PureWow. “And then I did a television show called What Really Happened to the Class of ’65?, which was based on this book. So, we played a young married couple.”
