  • Samantha Reed Smith, child peace activist/actress

    Samantha Reed Smith. Shows how much time has passed since the Eighties that she needs to be disambiguated from the "Supernatural" actress Samantha Smith.

    She wrote a letter to then CPSU General Secretary Yuri Andropov, a letter which then snowballed into an extraordinary series of events, including her role as Elizabeth on "Lime Street".

      I am trying to picture her face and where one would have seen her - was she in CFF films?
      I've everything I need to keep me satisfied
      There's nothing you can do to make me change my mind
      I'm having so much fun
      My lucky number's one
      Ah! Oh! Ah! Oh!

          I hadn't heard of her until you mentioned her. What she did sounds pretty amazing, and it's sad she died so young.

            Richard1978 I created this meme about Samantha Smith, Maine's Young Ambassador of Goodwill:

              Richard1978 I'd like to have seen how Samantha's acting career would have gone going forward as critics were pleased with her acting in what little of "Lime Street" that we have.

                @Flash Gordon @Richard1978 Another eighties tragedy this is sometimes overlooked: Judith Barsi's story is not just a tale of her murderous father, but also of exploitation by her mother and by Hollywood.



                I can imagine poor Judith Barsi thinking when filming this girl's doll advert that at least on "The New Twilight Zone", she was allowed to be in trousers!

                  She should be here to celebrate her fiftieth on the 29th...
