Rachel Wards in The Thorn Birds

She's as bad as Tea Leoni was in Deep Impact.

I didn't care -- I still wanted to FHH.

I remember she got panned when the Thorn Birds came out. Then she married Bryan Brown and disappeared.

But not as bad as I!

At least she wasn't high like Leoni was during Deep Impact.

I actually thought she was pretty good in The Thorn Birds. She was quite beautiful as well. If anyone sucked in that series, it was Richard Chamberlain.

Rachel Ward has said that she was so devastated by the critical drubbing she received for "The Thorn Birds" that she contemplated giving up entirely on showbiz. She's acted in smaller projects many times since then, but she claims she never regained her confidence after that.

She wasn't THAT bad. I mean, not Ali McGraw bad or anything. A shame she didn't have a thicker skin and developed her talent more.
