Subscibe to DEAL OF THE DAY

Where Are They Now - Friday, July 7, 2017

Hello fans,

My wife and I recently watched one of our favorite summer movies, "The Great Outdoors", which stars comedy legends John Candy and Dan Aykroyd. With every viewing we zip through, which we affectionately refer to as, "The Unnecessary Subplot" of the teenage romance between townie Cammie (Lucy Deakins) and the vacationing Buck Ripley (Chris Young). It's too cheesie and too cutesy, but the young actors are good and it just seems a bit "Shoe-Horned" into such a silly comedy.

Actress Lucy Deakins had some rather memorable roles over her rather brief film and TV career.

Let's see what Lucy Deakins been doing these days.

Take care,
