Resolved Question: Did Thora Birch play in
I watched the premier of Under the Dome and I swear that Thora Birch plays the white female of the female couple with the daughter.But I can not find her credited for playing in it or if it is some one else a credit of who it is.Does anyone know if it is her or just someone who looks a lot like her? And if it is not her does anyone know who the actress is?

Resolved Question: Why isn't Thora Birch
I mean she played in good movies like American Beauty and Ghost World. She is a good actress. For example in Ghost World she was the main character and she played better than Scarlett Johansson I think but now Scarlett Johansson is very famous yet I don't even hear Thora Birch's name. Can somebody explain me why? Thank you...

Resolved Question: Despite her obvious
She put on an outstanding performance as Enid in Ghost World and had potential for growth as an A-list actress but, looking back at her career, she hasn't done anything of importance since then. While her costar Scarlett Johannson's career has taken off. And Illeana Douglas has had a respectable career coming into Ghost World and so has Steve Buscemi. Buscemi's career, too, has been pretty good since Ghost World.
The only actress whose career has remained stagnant has been Birch. Why is that? I recently read a link about her father's behavior on the set of a Broadway play Birch was starring in but because of her idiot dad's behavior of bullying one of the costars Birch was fired from the play.
Here is the link http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/12/14/actress-thora-birch-fired-from-dracula/
