No, never on a TV show....

More hints!

Her career lasted only two years.

She had a more successful career than most, based on popularity, in her field.

She is still alive.

Wild guess--was she in an advertisement for a product?

I'm thinkin'--and I'm afraid to say it--Caddyshack.

I'm embarrassed about this whether I'm right or wrong.

I'll give it to John!

Sarah Holcomb was in four movies over two years. Of those four one was Animal House where she played the teen daughter of the mayor who went to the toga party with Pinto and the other was Caddyshack where she played Maggie the Irish girlfriend of the main character. So in two years she was in two of the most popular comedies of all time. Unfortunately mental illness and drugs caused her to have a mental breakdown and by age 20 she was gone from Hollywood and to this day no one is sure where she is though she is seemingly alive and still not well.

Hmm. My turn. I'll go with someone many of you would recognize by face, but I'm guessing not by name: Persis Khambatta.

For Santa (who already has this burned permanently in the DVD of his mind) and others--the lovely Miss Holcomb:

Thank you Landmark....you should note that the bass player for Otis Day and the Nights in that video is blues great Robert Cray.

Since John has left I shall give a hint as to who Persis is:

Mega nerds and dorks will recognize her (and believe me, she was smooooookin' hot)

John asked me to pass on this hint: Star Trek.

Oh for christ sakes, that's not a hint that is an answer. Take a vacation John!

Here's another hint...she's dead.

She was an actress who played a bald alien in Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

Here's an easy one (probably). I know MagicSanta knows this one, so Santa hold off on answering for a few hours and let others try first, okay? Smile

I do know who she is and I thought this was about people who got famous then vanished from the scene? I shan't answer the question but I shall say she was a pioneer in her field.

"The OP posts a name of someone who was once famous, and now presumably is obscure."

I sorta thought (obviously) that TW fit the bill. Can't say I have heard anything at all about her in a long while.

You could be right....I'll PM you why I think she may still be valid.

I thought about it, she is a good one, I'm just no longer valid myself.
