Kellerman was born on June 2, 1937 in Long Beach, California. She attended Hollywood High School growing up. At the age of 18, she was offered a singing contract by Verve Records head Norman Grantz, but she walked away.

“I was young and scared at the time,” Kellerman previously said. “I had very little self-esteem, and I had already started this acting class. This class, taught by Jeff Corey, really gave me the chance to grow up.”

Kellerman married producer Jonathan D. Krane in 1980. Krane passed away in 2016.
