Bonus Trivia

.

"I pay far more attention to what the reverberations of the movie will be in the audience rather than looking for a good role for myself. You can expose ideas in a film that will be helpful to viewers while being entertaining. I tend to look for projects that have some meaning and value so that people will be left with something that might enrich their lives in some way."---Lindsay Wagner in the Los Angeles Times, August 5, 1994.

.

"That's what commercials have done for my career. People say, 'You know, you're really funny.' I say, 'No kidding.'"---Lindsay Wagner in the Los Angeles Times, August 5, 1994.

.

In 1992, Wagner told The National Enquirer that she had been the victim of a date rape at age 14, and that she believed this traumatic event had poisoned her relationships with men.

.

"I care very much about the resonance that my work has with the audience. I care about offering them something rather than just trying to get their attention to make money ... that's why much of what I do are true stories, because I believe so much in people being able to transcend their circumstances."---Wagner to CNN.com, March 11, 2005.
