    Perhaps, although again as I said, she was certainly no worse than some of the awful "actors/actresses" who came into the series near the end. The quality of their acting was beyond comedy, it was tragic.

    actually i think she was quite good in the naked gun films but maybe that was her strength and drama isn't

    Her acting should’ve disqualified her. She was awful

    some people do comedy better than drama and i agree she wasn't the right fit to be a bond girl let alone a good enough actress

    I think Priscilla Presley is a considerably better actress than Tanya Roberts. Just watch The Beastmaster starring Tanya Roberts and Marc Singer (Matt Cantrell) - that combination was a mountain of talent!

    Mind you, believe it or not "Granny" Beaumont was under consideration for the part of Solitaire in Live and Let Die, thankfully Jane Seymour got the part.

    Producer Harry Saltzman had some difficulty pronouncing Gayle Hunnicutt's surname, apparently.

    my favorite Tanya roberts role will always be (1979)'s Tourist Trap' not that she gave an oscar worthy performance in it, what makes me always laugh about that film and my apologies if i said this already i honestly don't remember. but she refused to do nudity for that film yet she a year or two later did it for beastmaster go figure. anyways Dallas had a LOT of bad actors both male and female but P. Presley wasn't the worth one on the show by far, there were scenes she was fine in and than there were others she was just plain awful in.

    just because i said fine doesn't mean i said she was good fine pretty much me saying she was okay in some scenes.
