Alexandra Winter

  1. Keanu Reeves, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, 1987.     “I hate to say it, but we kind of gave up on the movie,” recalled Winter.  “It was much closer to the chopping block than anyone knows.”  In the first draft, they were skinny fourteens in low-rider bellbottoms and heavy metal T-shirts.   Then, Keanu auditioned  for Bill and Alex for Ted. They swopped bodacious dudes, made a hit (after two years on a bankruptcy shelf), made the sequel – Bill & Ted’s Bogus Adventure, 1990. They have remained good  pals, Reeves making cameos for several  films directed by  Winter, such as Freaked, 1993.
