Kathryn Leigh Scott


  1. Alexandra Isles, Dark Shadows, TV, 1966-1971.    In the frame with Nancy Barrett and Lisa Blake Richards for Jane Eyre – no, Victoria Winters! – in the temporal stretching vampire series won by the Danish Alexandra Isles for 423 chapters, 1966-1968. Richards did almost as well: 311 chapters as Maggie Evans. Plus a bit in the Tim Burton-Johnny Depp movie, 2012.
  2. Jan Chappell, Blake’s 7, TV, 1978-1981.    Among the choices for Cally, the telepathic resistance fighter from planet Auron, in what Terry Nation (also the creator of Doctor Who’s Daleks) pitched asThe Dirty Dozen In Space… The Minnesota-born Scott appeared in almost every US series from Little House on the Prairie to Dallas.
  3. Sylvester Stallone, Assassins, 1995.      Wesley Snipes was set with director Joe Johnstone until helmer Richard Donner proved interested – if Arnold would join. He didn’t. Sly did. And Donner stayed. Going to the action… like Sly… once more too often.
