It happens so quickly. One day, an actor is all over the place, and the next day, POOF, they’re gone. Sometimes, it happens gradually. Other times, it happens so quickly you don’t even realize the actor is missing. All you have is an empty feeling in your heart where memories of that actor once lived. If you search hard enough, however, you’re almost certain to find those actors hiding out in a Lifetime Original movie.
Y’all remember Julie Benz, right? Pretty woman, blonde, about 5’6 or 5’7. You probably remember her best from “Angel,” and several seasons of “Dexter.” Last you probably saw of her was in that superhero drama, “No Ordinary Heroes,” a couple of years back. It was quickly cancelled, then then POOF. Julie Benz was gone from our lives, abducted, taken away, and hidden from our view. Where’d she go?
