1Apple box... I've lived my whole life on an apple box.
2[Of Larry Hagman]: When I met the force of nature that is Larry Hagman, I was 17-years-old. I was raised by a single mother who is mentally ill, I had my own apartment. By the time I was 15-years-old; and I never had a father figure I have longed for and really needed me. He was a guiding force in my life. He taught me how to be professional, he taught me the craft of acting, he taught me how to behave on the set, he was an amazing, amazing, human being. He was so protective of me, because I was so young starting the show, but at the same time, he expected and demanded a lot from me, because he believed in me. So, on a general, personal note, he meant so much to me.
3[on her on- and off-screen chemistry with Larry Hagman, who played JR Ewing]: He's the greatest. He really is. He and his wife Maj are two of the nicest people on the planet. Larry really was the glue that kept us all together, off- camera as well as on, he was always having parties and get togethers and when we were on location, he was just so much fun. He helped us all bond as a unit and I have to attribute the huge success to Dallas because we had this chemistry but it was really Larry Hagman keeping us all together and we really grew to love each other He's a really amazing person and one of the most amazing actors, the fact he was never nominated for an Emmy award is such a shock for me, its an outrage.
4[Who was praying so hard for Larry Hagman to win the Emmy Award for Best Leading Actor in a Drama Series, which was Dallas (1978)]: To this day, I cannot believe Larry never won an Emmy Award. He's an amazing actor and he did an amazing thing with that character. But not only on-screen. Because he was the male lead on the show, he really set the tone in the very beginning of our filming. He was the one that kept us together as a group. We were always together in his big van, of his house, in his hotel rooms, wherever. He was the glue that kept us together on-screen and -off.
5I did it when I ran into a table-leg at the Dallas 30th Anniversary Reunion at Southfork Ranch last month.
6[When she was about to return to Dallas (1978)]: It can still go either way. I guess it depends on how bad they want me back. They have to want me back bad enough to give me the storylines I'm looking for.
7My mother decided that I was Lithuania's answer to Shirley Temple, and so I ended up here. I wrote, produced and starred in shows here.
1Was the only Dallas (1978) cast to attend her TV uncle's Larry Hagman's 70th Birthday in 2001.
2Once danced with Larry Hagman.
3Credits Larry Hagman and Barbara Bel Geddes as her favorite acting mentors/best friends.
4Met Larry Hagman prior to attending high school, when her single mother was mentally ill, and wasn't raised without a father, therefore, Hagman became her 'surrogate father' on Dallas (1978).
5Beat out Stefanie Kramer for the role of Lucy Ewing in Dallas (1978).
6Her acting mentors are the late Larry Hagman and the late Barbara Bel Geddes.
7She has played the same character (Lucy Ewing) in three different series: Dallas (1978), Knots Landing (1979) and Dallas (2012).
8Best remembered by the public for her role as Lucy Ewing Cooper on the 1980s soap opera Dallas (1978).
9Ex-niece-in-law of Annie Ross.
10She posed topless in Playboy magazine in the 1980s.
11She is an only child, as is her daughter Cherish Lee. However, Cherish does have a younger half-brother on her father's side of the family.
12Is a professional-caliber singer; she did all her own vocals in the Dallas (1978) episode where "Lucy Ewing" runs away with the Greg Evigan character, to try and become a country-western star. In real life, Charlene was offered the role of Rizzo in "Grease" during the 1990s; however, she turned it down because "my daughter (Cherish) was just starting high school, and I wanted to be there for her." However, she has released a single with the title "Cest La Vie".
13She attended Hollywood High School, where she was a varsity cheerleader and President of the Thespians' Club.
14Her daughter, Cherish Lee, was only 17 when she started working as a gossip columnist for "The Globe" tabloid magazine.
