  1. She starred in an episode of Twilight Zone and I found her strangely appealing and had to look into her past history. She was a very talented and beautiful actress. I noticed she just passed recently. She us only 8 years older than me so I’m sure I’ve seen her on television but just never paid much attention to actors names. Thanks for keeping her memory alive and I really enjoyed the Twilight Zone movie she was in.
