Year Title Role Notes
1959 The Truckee Strip Amy Bishop Only Role


It appears that she was born in New Zealand on October 6, 1937, travelled to England in 1958, and would have been 26 during the "Truckee" episode.  There is an obituary for her In the New Zealand Tribune for 15 October 2011, at Waikato Hospital. It seems she had a sister Lynette who may still be alive in December, 2012.

She appeared to have a struggling career until 1967; one small part in 1977; then off the radar.

Theory 2[]

She appeared in the Truckee episode when she was about 20; which would make her approximately 73-75 today.  There are two Adrienne Hayes listed as alive in December, 2012.  One lives in Santa Monica, California; the other in Denver, Colorado.

Nothing further information about the actress is known.
