"That mid-audition flip isn't the most dramatic transformation Luner has been through. From 1988 to 1990, she played Cindy Lubbock, a chubby—by TV standards—teen on the ABC sitcom Just the Ten of Us. Luner says she decided to lose weight after an episode "in which my dad and I got locked in a food locker and ate ourselves sick. I didn't see it as funny." She went to a nutritionist, who put her on a healthy diet—mostly fruits, vegetables and water—and she began exercising regularly. In six years she has shed 40 pounds. "
She has a bit of a hard edge, doesn't she? She's not quite as femme when she opens her mouth.
Actually, that hard edge served her well.
Wow! Her voice had really changed before AMC. She seemed too young for the usual explanation.
And whatever became of Bill Kirschenbauer? Back in 1989, he seemed to be on the cusp of being a really big star. "Entertainment Tonight" seemed to have almost nightly stories about where he had been and what starlet he was hooking up with. I think if he hadn't been dropped from Dead Poet's Society, he'd be a big star today.
Never knew Bill was supposed to be in "Dead Poet's Society".
What role would Bill have played?
I think that she ''dated'' George Eads.
That would be a big clue.......
She had no chemistry with any of the guys on AMC. Her best chemistry was with the chick who played her daugher, who was actually only a couple of years younger than her IRL.
Remember her as Lexi on Melrose Place? The best thing about the last two seasons.
She's always pinged to me.
Jamie played a thieving, murdering MTF ex-Marine on an early episode of NCIS.
Which was the "Just the Ten of Us" girl that was the holy roller that wanted to be a nun?
She was one of my first crushes.
R33, Heather Langenkamp. Also Nancy in the Nightmare On Elm Street movies.
Heather Langenkamp, R33. She was always a fave of mine too. She currently does the horror film circuit because of her iconic role as Nancy in the Nightmare on Elm Street films. I've met her at several conventions and she's a doll.
I loved her on Savannah but she sucked on AMC as Liza Colby. Only Marcy Walker could play Liza.
Thanks, r32. I didn't watch Melrose at that point but I adore a good soap catfight.
Thanks, R34 and R35!
I never got around to seeing the Nightmare movie: was too young when they came out and already emotionally charred from seeing Alien.
But she was so adorable on JTTOU in her blazer, with her crimped hair. She's not gay by any chance?
R33, see R6 and R9.

No. Heather has been married for many years to special effects make-up man David Anderson. They have two late teen/early 20s kids (a boy and a girl). Before David Anderson, she was married to musician Alan Pasqua.
There were too many chicks on that show. There should have been at least two more hot teen sons.

I thought Freddy killed him in New Nightmare?
Thanks for the info. All I can say is--damn.
[quote]I thought Freddy killed him in New Nightmare?
LOL. New Nightmare played loosely with Heather's real dealings with a stalker. It was a fake "Heather". Her husband's name in the movie was "Chase", and they had one kid.
