MILEY CYRUS

Miley Ray Cyrus was born Destiny Hope Cyrus on November 23, 1992. Miley’s parents named her Destiny Hope because they believed that she would accomplish great things with her life. When she was a baby she smiled so often that her mom and dad gave her the nickname “Smiley”, that is so cute! It was later shortened to “Miley”. Her dad is country singer/actor Billy Ray Cyrus and her mom is Tish. Here is a little tidbit I didn’t know, Miley’s Godmother is Dolly Parton! Her brothers and sisters names are Trace, Brandi, Christopher Cody, Braison and Noah. Some of them eventually entered the entertainment business: Trace became a vocalist and guitarist for the electronic pop band Metro Station, Noah became an actress, and Brandi became a guitarist.

CHAD ALLEN

Chad Allen was born Chad Allen Lazzarion on June 5, 1974. He has a twin sister named Charity. Chad is basically Italian with a little German mixed in. He was raised within a “strict” Roman Catholic household and regards himself as being a “deeply spiritual person” because of his upbringing. His first job was in a McDonalds television commercial, at age four. One of his first television acting jobs was in 1981 on the TV Series Simon & Simon (which starred the sexy Jameson Parker, who I used to watch on the Soap Opera One Life To Live in the 1980’s) in the episode: “A Recipe for Disaster”. Chad went onto St. Elsewhere where he played Tommy Westphall on 11 episodes between 1983-1988. One of my favorite actors from St. Elsewhere was Mark Harmon (Mark is the uncle to Gunnar & Matthew Nelson, you know those blond guys that took up singing like their famous dad Rick Nelson) Anyways back to Chad…He also did some guest starring roles in the 1980’s on shows like Airwolf, The New Leave It to Beaver, Matt Houston, Hotel, A Death in California, Code of Vengeance, Punky Brewster & Webster.

STEPHEN DORFF

I don’t really know a lot about Stephen but I do remember him in the 1994 movie Backbeat where he played Stuart Sutcliffe, his girlfriend on there was Astrid Kirchherr (played by Sheryl Lee who was Laura Plamer on Twin Peaks, what a weird film/series, I remember feeling spacy after watching, well even during that show, LOL). Backbeat chronicled the early days of The Beatles in Hamburg, Germany. It mainly focused on the relationship between Stuart Sutcliffe (played by Stephen Dorff) and John Lennon (played by Ian Hart), and also with Sutcliffe’s German girlfriend Astrid Kirchherr (played by Sheryl Lee). Others in this film were – Paul McCartney (played by Gary Bakewell), George Harrison (played by Chris O’Neill), Ringo Starr (played by Paul Duckworth). Now Gary Bakewell later reprised his role as McCartney in the television film The Linda McCartney Story (Elizabeth Mitchell did an excellent portrayal of Linda McCartney in this film! I really enjoyed this movie although it was so sad when she died.)

MARK-PAUL GOSSELAAR

MARK-PAUL GOSSELAAR

I think Mark Paul is best known for his role as Zack Morris in NBC’s Saved by the Bell which aired from 1989 to 1993. What a cutie he was! In 1991 he won, “Best Young Actor Starring in an Off-Primetime Series” for Saved by the Bell.

He has been in many series after SBTB but all of them were canceled, bummer. Some include: Good Morning, Miss Bliss, Saved by the Bell: The College Years, Hyperion Bay, D.C., NYPD Blue, Commander in Chief, John from Cincinnati & Raising the Bar. Wow, this guy is always working on some series, never give up is my motto and it looks like he’s doing that! He is a fine actor and whatever I have seen him in is always good.
