Carolyn McCormick


  1. Roxanne Hart, HIghlander, 1985.   Some 16 guys were up for Christophe(r) Lambert’s immortal clansman, Connor McLeod.  But as many as 24 women for  Brenda Wyatt, the modern-day forensics cop bedded by him. Brooke Adams… who must have felt  she had as great chance, having already successfully partnered Connery in The Great Train Robbery, 1978,  and Cuba, 1979. Her rivals  were  Karen Allen, Rosanna Arquette, Jennifer Beals, Lorraine Bracco, Elisabeth Brooks, Kate Capshaw, Glenn Close, Lisa Eilbacher, Linda Fiorentino, Kim Greist (Terry Gilliam’s huge Brazil error), Linda Hamilton, Diane Lane, Carolyn McCormick, Demi Moore, Annette O’Toole, Elizabeth Perkins, Tanya Roberts (booked for007’s View to a Kill),  Annabella Sciorra, Catherine Mary Stewart, Diane Venora, Sela Ward, Sigourney Weaver and (phew!) Sean Young.   Broadway’s e rank outsider won!

  2. Kate Mulgrew, Star Trek: Voyager, TV, 1995-2001.     She failed to become Starfleet’s  first female skipper, but was remembered for  a couple of guest slots  during 1988-1990.
