The actress I consider to the best to ever be a primetime soap actress recently told me a story.
She said her very first role many decades ago almost made her quit.
It wasn’t even really a role. It was more of a stand in thing for the female lead.
A body double if you will.
Well, it turns out the then 16 year old caught the eye of the then A+ list mostly movie actor who was starring in the lead role.
He is still a permanent A lister and all of you know him.
He cornered the actress multiple times and kissed her and groped her and a day where she had to wear a dress for a scene tried to do more.
Our actress didn’t work again for three years.
Movie: Bonnie and Clyde
Stand-in for: Faye Dunaway
