Trivia Newton-John #3

The image above is from an episode of Lou Grant. The actress in the picture also appeared on T.J. Hooker and had auditioned for the role of Princess Leia. Eventually, she would make it big, not as an actress, but as a musician. What 1980s pop band was she a member of?

  1. Terri Nunn from Berlin fame?

  2. Congrats! I'm amazed at how quickly out of the gate these questions are getting answered. They aren't easy by most people's standards. I guess I shouldn't expect anything less from Retrospace readers.

    1. She won an Emmy for the role...

  3. Oh my god I think I've found my soul mate. your blog ROCKS MY WORLD!

  4. I had no clue. I was going to say Pat Benetar...
    well she kind of looks like her..

  5. Woohoo! Very cool, thanks!

  6. Wow, I was going to guess the Bangles.

  7. You've been doing some cool contests up here. No bad I suck at these things. lol

    By the way, I'm no trying to spam your blog but I hope you'll check out my latest post on my Dino Lounge blog. I'm trying to do something a little different. It's a post about Sean "Diddy" Combs and his commercials for Ciroc Vodka. He uses a Sinatra tune in one of them. I hope you'll check it out and leave me some comments. Thanks. I appreciate it. I usually try not to spam my fellow bloggers about particular posts. Sorry about that.

  8. Ms. Alex- Appreciate it! You must be easily amused like me. Your blog Fonzie Socks is great... the mere mention of Pinky Tuscadero and my world is rocked.

    Joe- I've yet to win a single contest on a another blog - I'm either too late or too clueless.

    Wings- You da man.

    RetroHound- Alas, it was not meant to be this time. I'm thinkin' next week's Trivia Newton-John has got your name on it!

    Keith- Happy to promote the Dino lounge - spam here anytime!

  9. Aw man, I totally knew this but didn't get here until now! Did you ever see her (and Jeff Goldblum!) in "Thank God It's Friday"? TERRIBLE disco movie. But Terri Nunn's hot.

  10. dguzman- You bet I've seen TGIF - I think the directors and writers were so coked up they didn't know or care what they were doing. Goldblum as a disco stud? Were audiences supposed to care if the Commodores would make it to the disco on time? I must admit I enjoyed it as a great time capsule on disco culture right before it burst. A great performance by Donna Summer doing "Last Dance" too.
