Biography

A striking and sultry blue-eyed blonde performer, Beverly D'Angelo could be a household name, if only she cared to be. Multi-talented, she first gravitated to art, working in the animation department of Hanna-Barbera before moving to Canada to pursue her singing career, most notably with rockabilly legend Ronnie Hawkins. It was there that Gower Champion spotted her and cast her as Ophelia in his Canadian production of "Rockabye, Hamlet" (1975), which moved the next year to Broadway for a short run. After smaller roles in Woody Allen's "Annie Hall" and Michael Winner's "The Sentinel" (both 1977), D'Angelo gained wide attention as the rebellious debutante Sheila in Milos Forman's highly acclaimed film version of "Hair" (1979). She secured her reputation with a compelling portrayal of Patsy Cline in Michael Apted's "Coal Miner's Daughter" (1980), singing with style and accuracy the Patsy Cline songs for a soundtrack album which went gold.

Bonus Trivia

.

Some sources list 1954 as the year of Ms. D'Angelo's birth.

.

Contrary to popular opinion, D'Angelo's first released film was not "Annie Hall" (1977). That was the first film she shot, but it spent so long in post-production that another feature, "The Sentinel," although produced after "Annie Hall," arrived in theaters earlier.

.

About her first nude scene in "The Sentinel": "Michael Winner, the director, (convinced me to do it). After reading the script I said, 'Do you really think this is a role I should do? On page 60, I'm eating the brains out of someone's head!' He said, 'But my dear, you'll be eating the brains out of Chris Sarandon's head and he's just been nominated for an Academy Award for "Dog Day Afternoon".' I said, 'Okay, but on page 113, I'm a deaf-mute lesbian demon!' He said, 'But my dear, your partner will be Sylvia Miles and she's been nominated twice.' So my first nude scene was as a deaf-mute lesbian demon with a pair of cymbals, oddly enough." --Beverly D'Angelo in Movieline, May, 1995.
