If you grew to know life in the 80s... Than this Bud (legend) is for you! I first saw her in 'Starman'... And immediately knew she was an awesome actress!! Remember 'Scrooged', 'Indiana Jones', 'Split Image', 'Challenger' (GREAT made for tv movie!!)

She was born Karen Jane Allen, on October 5, 1951, in Carrollton, Illinois.. As a tyke.. She moved around alot due to her dad's job.. According to Wiki - she said.. "I grew up moving almost every year and so I was always the new kid in school and always in a way was deprived of ever really having any lasting friendships".  According to her website.. From a very early age she loved to write and began having her writings published at an early age.. 

She graduated high school here.. ​​
