PostSubject: SUZY GILSTRAP   Fri May 04, 2012 10:38 am

SUZY GILSTRAP was born in 1966 and attended High School in Irvine, California. At eleven years of age, 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.

I also agree it's sad about Jonathan Gilbert; never being seen or heard from again. Actually weird!

As far as Willie Aames, another interesting fact is he & Phoebe Cates (Fast Times at Ridgemont High) starred together in a knockoff of "Blue Lagoon," a movie called "Paradise."

Thanks also for the info on Suzy Gilstrap; I always wondered what happened to her. I loved her "Skyward" movies! I knew she was a paraplegic but I hadn't remembered how it happened. So sad!

No, she couldn't walk in real life and this is one of the reasons I can stand this episode, that ina whole is not dinamite... Sometimes,Michael Landon would choice disabled actors for hus shows and I like this attitude of him, giving work to people that other people would let aside for they supposed them not able to do acting career.

PostSubject: MICHAEL SHARRETT   Mon May 07, 2012 11:46 am

Michael Sharrett was born in July of 1965 in Ventura, California. Sharrett began his career at the age of 12 in the Emmy Award-winning Our Town, a 1977 television adaptation of the classic play Our Town. After some additional television roles and a part in the 1978 Walt Disney comedy western film Hot Lead and Cold Feet, Sharrett landed the role of Chris, the grandson of Clovis, played by Academy Award winner Jimmy Stewart in the 1978 musical film The Magic of Lassie. In The Magic of Lassie, Lassie is a dog owned by Sharrett's freckled-faced character Chris. Lassie is taken away from Chris, who then is put under pressure when his grandpa has to decide whether to sell the valuable family vineyard in return for the dog..

In 1986, Sharrett played Tom in the witty sci-fi/horror movie Deadly Friend. In the teenage friendship story, Tom and his friend Paul bring friend Samantha back to life using a computer chip designed by Paul. Reviews of Sharrett's performance were positive, with a New York Times reviewer writing, "As Tom, Michael Sharrett is a wonderful foil, fainting away at the first kick of Sam's supposedly dead leg."For his performance as Tom, Sharrett received a Young Artist Award nomination in 1986 as the Best Young Actor in a Horror Motion Picture.
In 1988, Sharrett appeared in the short lived TV series Supercarrier. Two years later, in October 1990, Sharrett served as a main character in an episode of the American television drama The Trials of Rosie O'Neill. In that episode, Sharrett played a seemingly all-American boy accused of desecrating a Jewish cemetery. Rosie, a Los Angeles public defender character played by Sharon Gless in the series, defends Sharrett's character. The episode first aired on Monday, October 22 on CBS.

Michael also appreared in Diff'rent Strokes, Newhart, Charles In Charge, St Elsewhere, Baywatch and Magnum PI  to name a few.  

HE APPEARED IN ONE LITTLE HOUSE EPISODE AS PETER LUNDSTROM, NELS OLSEN'S COUSIN'S SON, WHO WAS SENT TO NELS TO STRAIGHTEN OUT.
CHARLES STEPPED IN, IN WHAT TURNED OUT TO BE ANOTHER HEART RENDERING STORY OF A FATHER'S LOVE FOR HIS SON.
