Psychologist Pamela Stephenson earned her Ph.D. from the California Institute in 1996 when she was 47 years old. A little old to graduate from a subject like that some would say.
Successful as a writer
After that, and based on her knowledge of psychology, she wrote the biography of her husband Billy Connolly and the sexual abuse he suffered as a child, until winning the British Book of the Year 2002 award.
Now she works more deeply in her profession as a psychologist even writing for a British newspaper called Guardian a weekly column called “Sexual Healing” under the name of Pamela Stephenson Connolly.
By now, most of you must be wondering: but who the hell is Pamela Stephenson? Okay, here’s the answer: do you remember Superman III? If the answer was “yes”, you will remember the bad guy named Ross Webster (Robert Vaughn). If the answer is also yes, they will remember a voluptuous blonde with laughing hair named Lorelei Ambrosia. Yes the same one!
This actress who filled Superman III with charm and sensuality, was born on December 4, 1949 (61 years old) in Takapuna, Auckland in New Zealand and her time in the cinema was as ephemeral as it was irrelevant.
In 1971, the 22-year-old actress graduated from the National Institute of Dramatic Arts in Australia, where she had a successful career, until she moved to London in 1976.
It was until 1980 when he landed a prominent role alongside Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean), Mel Smith and Griff Rhys Jones in the television comedy show Not The Nine O’Clock News.
That innate grace for comedy led her to the movies, until she was cast in the third film in the Man of Steel saga, called Superman III in 1983, when she was 34 years old.
In this film Lorelei Ambrosia is Webster’s “assistant”. Although blonde, she breaks the paradigm of the “naive” and is shown as a refined and studious woman, who is silly in front of people.
The voluptuous and beautiful actress has an important interaction with the Man of Steel, but then loses all importance when the fight between Clark and Dark Superman appears.
Her acting career ended very soon, in 1987 (38 years old) was her last participation and she focused on her other passion, psychology.
In 1979, several years earlier, she met her husband Billy Connolly while doing the Not The Nine O’Clock News program, and she married him in Fiji 10 years later with whom she had 3 children during those years. She had previously married Nicholas Ball.
She has released 4 books between 2002 and 2005, and her role as an actress went down in history completely.
Pamela Stephenson went through the Superman saga fleetingly, as was her career, she left enough mark to be eternally remembered as Lorelai Ambrosia, and although we may not even recognize her in her current photos, we will all remember that image of a woman sitting in the head of the Statue of Liberty waiting for a Super Man to pass by.
