1985 was a big year for me. I was on the verge of being able to read, and I could almost tie my shoes! I already knew I was going to be a famous actress, but I've always had a psychic streak in me. This headshot is from later in the 80's when my Mom finally wised up and stopped getting me headshots at the passport photo center. My first ever headshot (not this one) was for my role as Young Florence in "Chess" and it featured my frizzy hair, my gap-toothed smile and stars in the background. I really stood out in the playbill. Being both a fan of "The Little Mermaid" and "LaVerne & Shirley," I couldn't believe I got cast in "Chess" alongside Jodi Benson and Eddie Mekka. Talk about a dream come true! But that was 1989. In 1985...honestly, I don't have many memories from 1985. I ate by myself in preschool and spent most days plotting how I was going to grab a trike from one of the five-year old guys who always hogged them, then speed off campus and not stop 'til I got to Mexico! I guess I had a little Billie Jean in me, come to think of it. I was blonde like Billie Jean, too. Just kidding. I look jaundiced when I'm blonde..which is why I need to stop writing this blog entry and get back to tanning my yellowish-white Irish skin for the show. See ya at the Cavern Club, y'all!Fair is Fair!
