Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Australian-born actress Virginia Hey split her childhood between her homeland and England. After the striking young woman grabbed the attention of a talent agent, she became a fashion model. Not long after she graced the covers of magazines in Europe and Australia, she made her film debut in the Australian action movie "Mad Max 2: Road Warrior," a sequel to the adventure flick "Mad Max." Her eye-catching portrayal of the Warrior Woman led to recurring roles on such popular Australian television programs as "Prisoner," which was set in a high-security prison for women, and the suburban-set soap opera "Neighbours." Ironically, the beautiful blonde is best known for her portrayal of the bald and blue-skinned priestess Pa'u Zotoh Zhaan in the sci-fi adventure series "Farscape." Hey earned fans and praise for her work on the show, but left after three seasons, claiming she was tired of the cosmetic upkeep and its toll on her health. She longed to stop shaving her head and eyebrows and revealed that the blue makeup she was required to wear caused health problems, including internal bleeding.

American character actor who specialized in "average joes", often timid or down-on-their-luck. Heydt was born in Montclair, New Jersey and educated at Worcester Academy and Dartmouth College. He intended a career in journalism and worked as a reporter for the old New York World. he developed an interest in acting and landed a number of roles on the New York stage (active there from 1927-48). In the mid-Thirties, he came to Hollywood and quickly established himself as a reliable supporting player. Although he played dozens of roles in many fine films including Gone with the Wind (1939), They Were Expendable (1945), and The Big Sleep (1946), and though his face is exceptionally familiar to viewers of that period's films, his name never quite broke through. He remained a pleasant presence in scores of films of Forties and Fifties, while continuing to work on the stage and on television. He died in 1960.
