Where Are They Now - Friday, May 26, 2017

Hello fans,

This week we are catching up with actress Kim Greist, known for her roles in such films as Manhunter and Brazil. I wasn't able to find too much information, but I have included lots of details about her career in acting!

Oh, and sorry about the whole Joan Fontaine thing. I thought she was alive. Well, she is to me, everytime I watch 'Suspicion'. Thanks for the heads-up.

Take care,
