Birthdays for January 10-16

Birthdays for January 10-16

Featuring Naya Rivera, Faye Dunaway, Nicole Eggert, Sarah Shahi, Jessy Schram, and more!


One more relatively quiet week on the birthday front before things get nuts again! We begin on January 10 with Sarah Shahi, who featured in a handful of so-so scenes during her starring role on Person of Interest, though it's more likely to be the 2015 movie Guns for Hire that brings her to the attention of DiD fans.

On January 12, we pause to remember Naya Rivera, whose accidental death at 33 was yet another of 2020's crappier moments. Her lone DiD scene (that we know of) is this one from Person of Interest.

Nicole Eggert is celebrating on January 13, and while we decided to resurrect our edits of Lightspeed and Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding in honor of the occasion, it's that classic chair tie/deathtrap from the Baywatch episode "Strangers Among Us" that everyone's gonna remember.

Academy- and Emmy-winning actress Faye Dunaway turns 80 on January 14, so there's no time like the present to revisit that one time in Three Days of the Condor when she got tied up and gagged by Robert Redford. Trieste Kelly Dunn turns 40 on the same day, and if you're one of those DiD fans who always keeps one eye on the Lifetime channel (bless your pervy little heart), you might remember her character surviving a close call in The Craigslist Killer.

January 15 is Jessy Schram's 35th birthday, and her short but sweet DiD appearance on Last Resort is worth a quick look. Finally, we end the week on January 16 with Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, whose big scene on Greyzone has gotten a fresh new edit just to celebrate.
