Robyn Douglass as Jaime Hamilton on Galactica 1980. The show may not have been all that good (okay, it was awful) but I always felt that the cast gave it their best shot, despite some of the worst scripts ever written for a science fiction series and an extremely rushed production schedule. In particular, I thought that Douglass really manged to bring some humanity, humor and intelligence to her role as the "ballsy" girl reporter who was virtually the only person on Earth aware of the existence of the battlestar Galactica and its crew.
A beautiful brunette model - and I've always had a particular attraction to beautiful brunettes - Douglass also appeared in a 1979 TV movie called The Clone Master and guest starred on various television show in the 80s, including some Mike Hammers. According to the IMDb, she now helps run a bed & breakfast in California.
Even at 13, and a rabid geek for any sort of sci-fi, I knew that Galactica 1980 sucked. Robyn was the only thing worth watching on the show (although I admit to a soft spot for the flying motorcycles).ReplyDelete
This Picture REALLY doesn't do her justice.ReplyDelete
Agreed, but it was the best I could find of the actress in her Galactica role.ReplyDelete
she was also the female lead (Dennis Christopher's love interest) in Breaking Away.ReplyDelete
She looked so yummy in her Galactica uniform!ReplyDelete
