Jane Krakowski

  1. Karen Fields, Sleepaway Camp, 1983.    Jane won her audition for the bitchy Judy but hated the way she (among the many) died – via a hair curler – in the summer amp, billed as “a nice place for summer vacation – a perfect place to die!”  Director Robert Hiltzik dedicated his horror movie to… his mother.
  2. Jennifer Connelly, Labyrinth, 1985.    For  Muppeteer-in-Chief Jim Henson’s sequel to his Dark Crystal (and alas his final film), there were 14 candidates  for Sarah – Krakowski, Yasmin Bleeth,  Helena Bonham Carter, Maddie Corman, Laura Dern, Kerri Green, Mary Stuart Masterson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mia Sara, Laura San Giacomo, Ally Sheedy, Lily Taylor and Marisa Tomei.  They all lost the election to the stunning Connelly…  opposite David Bowie. The wondrous names of folk in JK Rowling’s Potterverse (Moggle, Dometrious, etc) seem inspired by such Hensonversers as Ambrosius, Didymus, Hoggle, Ludo… 
  3. Lisa Kudrow, Friends, TV, 1994-2004.
