TV Girl: Season Hubley
I imagine Season Hubley landed the role of Salina Magee as a result of a previous role in a made-for-tv movie called She Lives (from 1973). In this movie, Season also plays a troubled eighteen year old. Her love interest (played by Desi Arnaz Jr.) attempts to do all he can to save her life when he discovers she is dying from cancer. This is a melodramatic romance with a touch of humor thrown in. She also appeared in an episode of The Rookies from 1975 (another one of my favorite TV shows).
Hubley is probably most well-remembered for her portrayal of Priscilla Presly in the made-for-tv movie Elvis (1979, directed by John Carpenter). Kurt Russell played opposite her as Elvis in the picture. The two got married in real life around this time but divorced in 1983.
