I've had the pleasure...
...of photographing Linda Thorson twice in the last 10 years. Linda, who played Tara King in the original The Avengers in the 1960s, is a hoot. Linda has had such a varied life and has so many interesting experiences to tell!
She had a fling with Frank Sinatra, among others, in addition to being married to newscaster Bill Boggs.
She told me a wild story about a cab fight she had with Lauren Bacall in front of The Dakota. Ms. Bacall appeared to be late for a performance in the musical Applause. For the cab, it became a knockdown, throwdown struggle to the finish. Although Linda is no slouch, Betty Bacall came out on top that time!
Linda has had a long and illustrious career and continues to work now. One of her last guest star appearances was as a soap opera queen and vineyard owner in "Schitt's Creeks," in which she was fabulous!
Keep truckin', Linda!
