Welcome to the very first ScreenTies birthday playlist! We'll highlight one clip per actress here, but in many cases, you can find more simply by clicking on their names.
December 6 kicks off with Stefanie Scott, who at 24 has already given us some terrific scenes in Caught and I.T. but appears to be just getting started. Sharing her birthday are Janine Turner, whose famous scenes include a solid tape-gag outing in Fatal Error, and Lindsay Price, whose character Joanna found herself in peril in the first season of Eastwick.
On December 7, here's to Jennifer Carpenter, whose work on Dexter spanned eight seasons but was never more exciting for DiD fans than at the end of the first. That same day belongs to Emily Browning, whose costumery in Plush is especially worth a look. And finally, Priscilla Barnes gave us a scene in the 1978 series The American Girls that's too good to pass up. (We promise to keep our eyes out for a better-quality version!)
On December 8, we celebrate Teri Hatcher, one of the most prolific actresses in mainstream DiD-dom. She's got a whopping 35 scenes in Brian's database, 11 of which are currently on our site, including her classic lingerie bed tie from Tales from the Crypt. Sharing Teri's special day is Kim Basinger: we still haven't found that infamous scene from Dog and Cat, but we can offer you Mother Lode in the meantime!
Our best-known celebrant for December 9 is Reiko Aylesworth of 24 and Hawaii Five-0 fame. On December 10, it's Emmanuelle Chriqui's turn. Her DiD scenes tend to be minor, but you can find four of them here, including her tape-gag scene from In the Mix.
Celebrating her 80th birthday on December 11 is Donna Mills, whose wraparound tape-gag scene in Play Misty for Me is a legitimate classic. (We still need to track down a good non-dubbed version of Waikiki!) She shares a birthday with rising star Hailee Steinfeld, whose DiD resumé is currently short but has many years to grow.
On December 12, here's to Sheree J. Wilson, whose impressive run of scenes on Walker, Texas Ranger included a doozy of a bed tie. And last but far from least, happy 50th birthday to Mädchen Amick, who has given us far more memorable scenes than we had any right to expect. We chose Hangman for this playlist, but don't miss the rest of her resumé!
