Before I even knew the name of Deborah Jenssen, my next interview subject, I saw her dancing in music videos like Was (Not Was)’ Walk The Dinosaur and on episodes of Solid Gold I had acquired from a fan-to-fan DVD seller. Years later, I would discover Ms. Jenssen on Facebook, and I would find that she had transitioned from dancing to singing. With her many diverse talents, I knew she would have some fantastic stories to tell. We spoke last year, but today, you’ll all get to know her as I have.
I attended Chiller Theatre in Parsippany, New Jersey for the 4th time in October of 2016, and as with the previous times I attended, I met a lot of wonderful people, both celebrity and convention-goer alike. Falling into the former category is my next interview subject. Holly Fields has been active in the entertainment industry since she was a child, appearing on TV shows like It’s Garry Shandling’s Show and Quantum Leap and in movies like Communion and Wishmaster 2. More recently, she’s developed a second career in voice-over, where she’s active as Cameron Diaz’s vocal match and a starring presence in the Star Wars: The Old Republic computer games. I met Ms. Fields at Chiller and befriended her on Facebook shortly afterward. We spoke on Monday, April 17th, and I hope you all enjoy getting to know this versatile talent.
There have been multiple attempts to make commercial versions of the numerous products seen in Back to the Future Part II by 2015. Nike tried to make the self-tying laces, but ultimately failed. The hoverboard successfully got off the ground, but it depends on your definition of “success” — it can only hover over a special magnetized surface that’s not common. And when we got to October without ever seeing Pepsi Perfect, I figured that would never happen as well. Not so fast — Pepsico waited until now to announce it, but they ARE selling the product after all.
