    Lead roles that don't have romance/dating storylines in Non-Romance genres

    I think it was more they brought him back because Diana Rigg had decided to leave the show. The producers were afraid killing her off would prove unpopular.

    Lead roles that don't have romance/dating storylines in Non-Romance genres

    Diana Rigg’s Mrs. Peel character. Her sex appeal was a given and yet she never dated or had a boyfriend. Even her late husband was never lamented or referred to.

    Boxing, Weightlifting & Modern Pentathlon Under Threat For LA 2028

    After the brouhaha over the pentathlon equestrian event in Tokyo, I looked up that rider on youtube (she has been to several Olympics). Someone posted a video of the entire event (in either Rio or London - can’t remember which). I’m surprised it isn’t more popular with viewers for the sheer...

    Deadly high rise fire in Bronx

    At least 2 of the bad NYC fires were caused by charging e bikes. The lithium ion batteries caught fire. One started in a restaurant below the apts where employees were charging 9 e bikes, and another was caused by someone charging 14 e bikes in their apartment ( hopefully not all at once)...

    Alysa Liu Switches to Colorado Coaching Team

    Actors that have moved past iconic breakthrough roles

    Actors also seem more business-savvy and invest their money in their own productions instead of waiting for a producer to hire them. Ron Howard spent his childhood and young adulthood as a television actor and is now an A-list movie director/producer. Or you have someone like Joe Rogan, who...

    Actors that have moved past iconic breakthrough roles

    I would say the most successful is Sally Field, who went from Gidget and the Flying Nun to Norma Rae, Steel Magnolias, and Smokey and the Bandit. She has had critical and box office success, plus longevity. Tom Hanks started out in television sitcoms (Bosom Buddies), although they weren’t...
