Where Are They Now - Friday, February 3, 2017

Hello fans,

The other night I watched 'Eyes of a Stranger' and thought that the lead was the actress that played by Cruise Director Julie McCoy on the Love Boat. After cruising imdb I learned that I was right.

Then I wondered, "What's Julie been doing lately?" So today we will catch-up with actress Lauren Tewes.

Take care,
