Candy Clark, an actress who performed in 'The Man Who Fell to Earth' has a website with info about her and the movies she has been in. Shes has been fortunate enough to be involved with two classics, namely 'American Graffiti' (for which she received a 'Best Supporting Actress Nomination' for an Academy Award), and 'The Man Who Fell To Earth' with Bowie. Here is a clip from her website:
"I was the first person cast in 'The Man Who Fell to Earth', for the part of 'Mary Lou'. The character was quite a challenge. I had to play 'Mary Lou' in various stages of her life, from 20 to about 60 years of age. On some days I would be an older 'Mary Lou' in her late fifties and sit for hours while they applied my makeup. Other days I would play the ages in between. Since movies are usually shot out of sequence, it was very challenging because I had to remember what age I was and where we were in the story at all times. I also played David Bowie's wife from the other planet and at one point I even played David Bowie in a scene! Can you find me? I thought David Bowie was perfect for the part of 'Thomas Jerome Newton' and WOW, what a stellar performance he gave!"
