I realized I hadn't scanned in a lot of my former headshots, so in a real splurge of narcissism, I have now scanned many of my headshots plus some very early acting shots. The first shot was directly out of acting school at American Academy of Dramatic Arts, in 1973.
After a couple of years and a hair cut, I got new acting shots, about 1975.
In 1977, I accompanied Dirck Halstead, the incredible Time magazine photographer, as he photographed the cover and inside photos for a cover story on the Sulzbergers and The New York Times. We became friends, and he and his assistant came to my apartment in the fall of 1977 and took some photos of me that are still my favorites. I have started to scan them in, although I may have to take the larger prints to be scanned by professionals. In the meantime, here are a few.
Around 1986, I got new headshots from a photographer I don't remember, except that it was a horrible experience, and he seemed to think the best photographs were ones that made the actress look like she was about to kill someone. The photos are indeed dramatic, but I hope I am now enough of an actress that you don't have to belittle me to get me furious.
In my stroll down Acting Memory Lane, I came across some more performance shots from very early in my career. In 1986, I played Thomasina Q. Turkey in The Owl and the Pussycat, a children's play. Whenever I get too full of myself, I like to look at these photos.
While looking for headshots, I found two photos taken by Sandy Geis, a friend who worked at The Times in 1980, when I did I've Got Sixpence, by John van Druten, at Seventh Sign Theater with Edward D. Griffith and Violet Lane.
