Halloween Announcements Week 4: Denise Crosby
Denise Crosby has joined Texas Frightmare Weekend! Denise had a small role in 48 Hrs. and parts in Trail of the Pink Panther and Curse of the Pink Panther. She appeared in a variety of films and made-for-TV movies, including Malice in Wonderland, Desert Hearts, Eliminators and Miracle Mile.
In 1987, Denise caught her big break playing Lieutenant Tasha Yar in Star Trek: The Next Generation. The character allowed Denise to build a sizable fan base that exists to this day. In 1989, she played the mother of Gage Creed who was brought back to life through an ancient curse in Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. Remaining in the horror genre, Denise played a similar role of a mother who discovers her young daughter’s doll is evil in the Child’s Play clone Dolly Dearest.
