Did RTD confirm whatever happened to ? A Very English Scandal will air? Whatever happened to Twelve Monkeys star Madeleine Stowe? Did Dwayne Johnson’s Rampage triumph at the box office? Whatever happened to Showgirls’ Elizabeth Berkley?
Madeleine Stowe is a name you don’t hear mentioned much any more, but in the late ’80s and early ’90s she was absolutely EVERYWHERE. Both beautiful and fiercely talented, Stowe studied concert piano alongside journalism and film-making, and after a half-decade of TV tryouts, went stellar on the big screen. It was Mohicans that pushed Stowe into the A-list. In an epic love story set in 1757 that garnered critical and commercial success, she played a colonel’s daughter who is rescued by a group of Mohicans while being escorted through the Adirondack Mountains in America.
But it was Twelve Monkeys that developed the cult following, Stowe playing the sympathetic psychiatrist who encounters Willis’s time traveller in Terry Gilliam’s sci-fi head-spinner. By 1995, Stowe was topping ‘most beautiful actress’ lists all over the place, and had become a household name. John Travolta, Mel Gibson and Sylvester Stallone. Her last big-screen role was as the lead in horror Octane opposite The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus, before he was particularly famous.
Was Ordeal by Innocence’s finale popular with viewers? Where are the Britain’s Got Talent winners now? What does Lost In Space’s ending mean for season 2? Whatever happened to Showgirls’ Elizabeth Berkley? At the start of 2007, Mika was hailed by the BBC’s annual Sound Of poll as the next big star.
They couldn’t have been more on the money, and within just a few weeks the singer-songwriter sailed to No. 1 in the UK with both his breakthrough single ‘Grace Kelly’ and debut album Life In Cartoon Motion. And it wasn’t just in Blighty where his career flourished. Mika was a big name across the world, selling over 8 million copies of his first album and scoring Grammy and Brit Awards nominations in the process. Despite not having the same impact as his debut, Mika’s second album, The Boy Who Knew Too Much, was a success too. It achieved over 2 million sales across the globe, and was headed up with another Top 5 hit in the UK in the form of the infectious ‘We Are Golden’.
