Where in the Horror are they Now? Amy Irving!

AMY IRVING THEN : I’ve always been a fan of Brian De Palma’s work from the Seventies and Eighties. The psycho-sexual goodness that he knew how to deliver always felt like something I shouldn’t be allowed to watch when I’d sneak and take in as a kid. One of the great things about it was his excellent choices in leading ladies. There are a ton...
