WALTER SCOTT ASKS … Barbara Hershey
Feb 27, 2013
What drew you to this role?
Itâ€™s a really inventive show, and Iâ€™ve always loved fairy tales. Itâ€™s fun to wave your hand and have someone fly across the room!
Are you still in touch with your Beaches costar, Bette Midler?
Weâ€™ve lost contact in the last few years because she moved to New York and Iâ€™m in L.A., but I love her and consider her a friend. When she was living in L.A., weâ€™d go to restaurants, and it was fun to see people do double takes when they saw us together!
That 1988 movie has become a classic. Did you know it was special when you were making it?
I knew it was a rare thing to have a film about the friendship between women. Itâ€™s crucial for little girls growing up to know that friendships between women are important.
