Debbie Harry

  1. Melody Anderson, Flash Gordon, 1980.    UK director Nicolas Roeg's choice for Dale Arden was among the changes made by Dino De Laurentiis and new helmer Mike Hodges.  “It upset me,” Nic told me, “inasmuch as I wanted to do it.  But if someone doesn't want to give you the bread, you can hardly be upset by it.”
  2. Cindy Morgan, TRON, 1981.     Miss Blondie  was among among the various actresses testing for Lora and her digital world  version, Yori. Harry’s credo ran: “The only person I really believe in is me.”
  3. Darryl Hannah, Blade Runner, 1981. Hannah had the edge for Pris. Her height. Also seen for the "basic pleasure model" replicant: Stacey Nelkin, from Halloween III: Season of the Witch (also seen for Mary, later cut from the script)… Monique Van De Ven, who impressed Scott in Paul Verhoeven’s scandalous Dutch film, Turks fruit/Turkish Delight, 1972 - co-starring   Rutger Hauer, already booked by Scott for Roy Batty. 
  4. Michelle Pfeiffer, Grease 2, 1981.   The Miami singer of the Blondie band was hardly interested in going back to high school at age 34. Idem for Kim Carnes. Nor Pat Benatar at 28. Pfeiffer was 23 with a surprise quirky quality said director Patricia Birch. To say nothing of an outstanding beauty.
  5. Whitney Houston, The Bodyguard, 1991.      For the body he guarded, hot singer Rachel Marron, star-producer Kevin Costner ran through ten chanteuses.  From Madonna  and Janet Jackson to Joan Jett and Dolly Parton.
  6. Isabella Rossellini, Blue Velvet, 1985.     Auteur David Lynch wrote Dorothy for Deborah. But since Videodrome, she was sick of continually being offered…  The  Weirdo.  He next tried  Helen Mirren, Hanna Schygulla, Sissy Spacek but Rossellini  won  the film - and the director. (Just like her mother, Ingrid Begrman, and Italian maestro Roberto  Rossellini in 1949).
  7. Jane Horrocks, Bring Me The Head of Mavis Davis, 1997.     Among many stars (Whoopi Goldberg, Bette Midler) considered for a music world comedy that truly needed the Horrocks voice(s). And better jokes.
