She's mostly forgotten now, but was a figure skater turned movie star.

@Lotta, I was going to try and cheer you up with some Jax Teller but SOMEBODY apparently reported it to YouTube as a violation of standards.

I saw an ep of "The Haunting Of" Connie Stevens lives in the house that Sonja did when she was a star in LA. Connie thinks Sonja haunts the attic.

@Seven, who would report such a wonderful thing?

Kopa Katz said...

She won three Olympic Gold Medals and then became a star in some very odd skating musicals. And she toured with her own show forever. I'm a little embarrassed that this is the second thing I've ever posted about. And that when I do post it's because I know way more than I should about Sonja Henning.

Reading her Wikipedia page would've revealed this "blind".

Jessie said...

Don't be embarrassed; own it!

I know more about her than I should too. And many other figure skaters. :)
