I recall the actress who protrayed Albert's disabled pen-pal, I think her first name was Suzy, stated in an interview years ago, a tree fell on her causing her disability. Very sad.

SUZY GILSTRAP was born in 1966 and attended High School in Irvine, California. She was on a school field trip to an arboretum near Los Angeles when her life was suddenly, cruelly changed. "I was crouching by a pond, feeding the ducks, when a huge branch from a nearby eucalyptus tree fell on my back," she remembers. "When I woke up in the hospital I was really scared. I cried for my mom and dad." They told her then that she would never walk again. "Of course it was a shock," she says, "but I never really had time to get depressed about it." Within four months she was back at school, and she credits her classmates' loving support with helping her through the transition.
Her first acting role was in Zoobilee, a TV series in 1986. She appeared on Cagney and Lacey and Skyward which Ron Howard directed. She co-produced and acted in Blue Crush in 2002. She has written a book called "Suzy, An Authorized Biography" that is currently available to view on Amazon.

Wow that is sad, did she say how old she was? She was lucky to have kind classmates. That must have been one heavy branch. I hope her parents sued. What year is that pic from? I had great admiration for Christopher Reeves, Teddy Pendergast, and Curtis Mayfield too. They were also crippled in freak accidents. But they never gave up on their crafts. I respect Kirk Douglas too, who could forget his Oscar speech after his stroke. I also have deep repect for boxer Ali. Remember Geri Jewell from Facts of Life?

She was eleven years of age when she had the accident, and the pic was taken in 1980, when she was 14.

I had idea that Suzy is handicapped. Sounds like she had kind classmates to help her deal with her disability.

That's cute!




“It was a huge shock when it came and very excited“

This was the duchess of cambridges take on how she felt when William proposed during their official engagement interview with ITN reporter Tom Bradby. There was a real giggle at the end. Cute.
