#86 Theresa Russell

8 01 2011

I’ll be the first to confess that Theresa Russell doesn’t really belong in this series.  She’s included because she is my favorite unappreciated actress, and if I reach to some thrillers…

Theresa Paup was born in San Diego, California and was modeling by the age of twelve. Her film debut was in The Last Tycoon in 1976, and much of her finest work was with her husband of several years, Nicholas Roeg ( Bad Timing, Eureka, Insignificance, Aria, Track 29, Cold Heaven).  She was also in Black Widow, Physical Evidence, Impulse, Whore, Kafka, A Young Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, Wild Things, Earth vs. the Spider, The House Next Door, Project Viper, The Box, Spider-Man 3, and Dark World. She has two sons by Nicholas Roeg, Maximillian and Statten, who have both worked in cinema, in front or behind the camera.
