As we hit the fifth post in this A-Z Challenge, I am E-lated to say that -
E is for E.G. Daily!
I think I first encountered Elizabeth "E.G." Daily in her musical appearance in Better Off Dead. I was captivated by her talent, her pixie like beauty, and her sheer 80's-ness.
Later, I caught up with Pee Wee's Big Adventure on VHS and was delighted by her performance as Dottie.
She got started in show business as a dancer in the obscure 1978 movie Disco Fever - then did a guest spot on Laverne and Shirley. More television and movies followed, with interesting genre flicks like Street Music, Wacko, One Dark Night, Valley Girl, Streets of Fire, Bad Dreams, and No Small Affair on her resume. She continued working before the cameras into the 90's - then discovered a new facet to her career as a voiceover artist on children's cartoons. Most famously, she was the voice of Tommy Pickles on Rugrats, which had a very healthy run on Nickelodeon throughout the 90's.
Since getting the voice work going - Elizabeth hasn't been in front of the cameras much - or at all. But we still have her 80's movies and shows to enjoy - and it's always fun to see her pop up! Check out some E.G. Daily next chance you get!
Until next post - tomorrow! - you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
