Lesley Anne Down DVD Release!
B&B’s own Lesley Anne Down’s(Jackie Marone) 2006 movie ‘Seven Days Grace’ was recently released on DVD. It is a romantic comedy produced and directed by her husband Don E. FauntLeRoy. Lesley met Don when filming ‘North and South’, and currently they reside in Malibu with Lesley’s son and her two step-children.
Those who worked on the film say it is a fun story about Grace, who inherits the family restaurant from her father, who passes away before he can tell her the “secret” recipe for their famous ribs. Grace dedicates herself to saving the restaurant (and the recipe) from going under.
It’s no secret by now that Lesley Anne Down was once voted Britain’s Most Beautiful Teenager, and many Soaps.com readers would agree that her remarkable beauty endures today, helping put the “beautiful” in The Bold and the Beautiful.
