Plank of wood aka Rachel Ward here.

If you thought I was a shitty "actress" in Against All Odds" have you seen my Meggie Cleary in "Thorn Birds"?

Any questions?

She was rather horrid, wasn't she? And couldn't any of them at least TRY to fake a New Zealand or Australian (as appropriate) accent?

If she was so horrid then how did she get the part?

Costumes by Travilla!

Great question.

Rachel Ward! YES PLEEEEZZZZ!!!! She and Jeff Bridges together sizzled the screen. Great actress and sexy sexy sexy

Barbara Stanwyck was similarly expressionless, but that was because of too many facelifts.

She was miscast in the "On The Beach" remake. Too old and too jaded.

But she's gorgeous I think, especially in her "Against All Odds" days.

R7, Stanwyck never had any PS in her life. As a matter of fact, they had to apply makeup to make her look older for "The Thorn Birds" because she looked too young. I don't know where you got that load of caca from

A couple decades ago, when her husband Bryan Brown was here in Toronto filming the sequel to "FX", she gave a rather bitch interview to a local paper about her career and the Australian entertainment industry. I thought it odd that an acclaimed actress could be so snippy.

Barbara Stanwyck was not expressionless..she was a great actress who didn't feel the need to over do it - instead she let the camera do the work and thats what made her great.

Rachel, tell me, "friend", when did Saruman the Wise abandon reason for madness?

by Plank of wood aka Rachel Ward herereply 1209/22/2013

I thought she was sexy, too

by Plank of wood aka Rachel Ward herereply 1309/22/2013

She just hasn't got the right stuff.

In my day...

Watch the elevator Diana.

by Plank of wood aka Rachel Ward herereply 1509/22/2013

She was starving, thus cranky, R10.

by Plank of wood aka Rachel Ward herereply 1609/22/2013

Rewatching The Thorn Birds many years later, I get all the criticism. She just was not a good actress. But she landed that hot piece Bryan Brown. He was gorgeous back then and a hot daddy now. Great looking couple.

I'm not a frickin' Thornbird here.
