69 as A'leshia Lee, she is cast for Universal Studio's The Love God, starring Don Knotts. The role is the result of Universal's year-long, exhaustive search for a statuesque, voluptuous red-haired actress to play the remaining Pussycat in the Knotts' film. She signed with her first theatrical agent only the day previous to being sent on the all-important Universal audition. She is so new to the business that she has yet to have professional headshots taken. It almost costs her the role, since some studio executives are concerned how the tall red-head would photograph. Joe Rich, Universal's legendary casting director, vouches for her, and his support cinches the plum role for her.
