When she was 14, Mary Williams moved from the poverty-stricken streets of East Oakland, California, to Jane Fonda's hacienda in Santa Monica, California, becoming the adopted daughter many people didn't know the Oscar®-winning actress even had. She joined Jane's children from her first two marriages—Vanessa, who was 15, and Troy, who was just 12. Watch as Troy reflects on what it was like to gain another big sister and why Mary's race was never a factor in his family.
