“Lots of men have tried to run roughshod over me – you can visit them in the cemetery!”
Dallas was one of those shows you never forget. It was all about a particular wealthy Texan family – the Ewings. They made their fortune from their independent oil company, Ewing Oil.
And we all remember that time J.R. got shot, sparking the infamous “Who shot J.R.?” debate, and that one time Bobby ‘died’ and miraculously returned a year later in the shower…
But what about the actors who portrayed the oh-so-familiar characters? Where are they now…?
1. Lucy Ewing (Charlene Tilton) – THEN
Lucy ‘The Poison Dwarf’ Ewing did have a penchant for trouble-making, that’s for sure! During the course of the show she got engaged to a gay man, pursued romantic relations with her biological uncle, became involved with an actual psychopath, and even developed (and got over!) a drug problem. Yeeeeesh… at least she was never dull!
Since her infamous role in the original Dallas, Charlene Tilton went on to star in Superhero Movie and other minor productions, and reprised her role in the 2012 continuation of Dallas. You might also recall her taking part in 2012’s Dancing on Ice. She’s also an active ambassador for Actors for Autism – a cause she feels strongly about.
