Happy Birthday Phoebe Cates!

The very lovely and talented former actress Phoebe Cates celebrated her birthday on July 16, so this is a tad late, but as they say better late than never!

Daily Heroine: Kate Beringer

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Kate Beringer (played by the angelic Phoebe Cates), from Gremlins and Gremlins 2: The New Batch.

And in the film category, I decided I just couldn’t go past Kate (although there are others who I consider equally appealing). As I said in the aforementioned post, Kate is beautiful, brave and caring, and I have had a crush on her ever since the 80s.😆

I’m always on the look out for new interesting and likeable heroines, so if you have a particular favourite, please tell me about her! Till tomorrow, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you.😊
