The day Pamela Gidley came in to read for the part of Brigitte she gave what is perhaps the worst performance in the history of auditions.
She was sexy, quirky, odd and I don’t think she performed even one line the way we’d written it.
But we were totally captivated.
And I completely fell in love.
So we decided to change the character and fit it to who she was.
She was wonderful and loving and a joy to be around.
The Pretender would not have been the same without her.
She is missed – but will never be forgotten.
She still captivates me.
