They had this amazing group behind the camera. Everybody that was there when I was on was amazing. While the bad girls, Angela and Suzanne, may have had all the fun, it was the good girl, Judy, who survived the Hull House Halloween party in the 1988 classic , and Cathy Podewell says the party never really ended during filming and, unlike her character, she had nothing but fun making the movie. One, around 8 years ago, I had no idea about what happened with Night of the Demons. She portrayed Cally Harper Ewing on the television show Dallas. How I got the part? No, because I grew up in California, and they were in Chicago.
Then we started getting together for conventions and Horror fans are amazing fans! The whole movie was shot inside, outside, and climbing over the wall there. Do have new projects coming up? And I love the Alice in Wonderland costume. She attended the University of California at Santa Barbara, where she majored in drama and dance and was featured in such plays as No, No, Nanette and Jules Feiffer's Hold Me. Like I said, I watch it every year.
First, tell us, what inspired you to pursue a career as an actress? There was a period where I thought that maybe my youngest would. And that was Kevin Tenney. He was so wonderful, he was the most wonderful, caring sweet person ever. Are your kids picking up on any of the performance genes that you picked up on? And then as a mom, I sort of passed that on to my kids. It was about a year later, in 1988. Did you enjoy your time working in television? That was a big year for you, because around the same time you got Growing Pains as well, and it sounds like Growing Pains came almost as a direct result of Night of the Demons too, like it was all meant to be.
So yeah, none of us thought 30 years ago that any of this would be happening right now, with the 30 th anniversary and the that Chris MacGibbon; is doing. One of the memorable aspects of Night of the Demons was the house used in 90% of the film. I was very fortunate to get a couple of sitcoms because I like being funny. They both did lots of theater.
I did a few films, but with television, you get to play more characters more often. It was definitely a full 5 years. Well, she is inspired to dip her toes in the pool of acting again!. Also, I feel a bit silly about having a Cathy Podewell instagram. It was all, shot by shot, done creatively through what we called the blue cookie, the smoke thing that they lit, and how they shot it with the light coming in and caught in that smoke.
I do feel blessed though. Hopefully something will come of you jumping back into it all. Cathy Podewell — I am taking it slow. I thought maybe it would be physical therapy. Quite honestly, when I said to them, at some point in high school, I was thinking about making acting my career, they pretty much tried to talk me out of it.
I was a Horror film lover, but just kind of got out of it. When Chicago was a sort of booming town for the film industry, he actually got a lot of small roles. Otherwise, no, no one has asked. You could be on one path and find yourself heading in a different direction moments later. He played the homeless old man that begs Bill Murray every day when he comes around the corner. Every picture I put up is a throwback Thursday picture, there is nothing current.
And you got along with the other cast members well? We were all so young. And talk about loving a cast, everyone was so great. It was really pretty magical. I guess there are plenty of them out there, but I was fortunate enough to never work with them.
