Following some work as a model, Feldon's break came in the form of a popular and much parodied television commercial for "Top Brass," a hair pomade for men. Lounging languidly on an animal print rug, she purred at the camera, addressing the male viewers as "Tiger." This led to small roles in television series such as Twelve O'Clock High and Flipper, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. agent in "The Never-Never Affair"(1964), before Feldon was cast as "Agent 99" in the spy comedy series Get Smart opposite Don Adams. She played the role for the duration of the show's production from 1965 until 1970, and was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 1968 and 1969.
In 1964, she appeared with Simon Oakland in the episode "Try to Find a Spy" of CBS's short-lived drama Mr. Broadway, starring Craig Stevens. Feldon's subsequent work includes appearances in Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, Lorne Greene's Griff, Cheers and Mad About You for television, the films Fitzwilly (1967) and Smile (1975), and as a commercial voice performer (The Dinosaurs! Flesh on the Bone, 1993).
She has reprised her role as "Agent 99" in made-for-television film Get Smart, Again! (1989) and a short-lived television series also titled Get Smart in 1995. She provided audio commentaries for the DVD release of the original Get Smart series in 2006.
Divorced since 1967, Feldon resides in New York City and is the author of Living Alone and Loving It (2003).
