She landed her first TV role at the age of eight as a regular on the TV series The Cliffwood Avenue Kids. Another role on the TV series Thunder immediately followed.

At 13, Hardin won a scholarship to study with the Joffrey Ballet Company in New York, but kept up her acting career throughout her teens, with guest starring roles on popular TV series such as Different Strokes, The Love Boat, and Little House on the Prairie, Magnum P.I., Quincy and Hotel.
