P. J. Soles

Many actors in popular lower budget movies eventually graduate to roles in more mainstream films. While P. J. Soles managed to be a part of some of the early cult classics of the 1970's, her career never really went where it seemed to be headed.

Not that she doesn't have a following, for fans of Rock 'n Roll High School and Halloween have been waiting for her big breakout movie for over thirty years. That never happened and has left many fans scratching their heads as to why.

With her good looks and natural talent in front of the camera, she seemed to have all that was needed to becoming a Hollywood star. Add to the mix some good supporting work in Carrie and Stripes and it appeared that a future with her name above the title was imminent.

Mainstream fame never found P. J. Soles, but that never slowed down her acting career as she has been working fairly steady ever since her early days. And when it's all said and done, that's not a bad life for an actor.

  1. PJ has been in many big budget films. She had secondary roles in "Sweet Dreams" as the mistress of Patsy Cline's husband, an as Goldie Hawns nemesis Private Winters in "Private Benjamin". I agree she really deserved to be a big star! She always will be in my book..
