First of all, a happy greeting to my fellow forum members as this is my first post.
So coming straight to the topic, I was the owner of a sticker album of The Lost World back in grade six in my country and it was distributed by a company called Merlin. They even had their logo illustrated on it.
The scheme was to collect stickers and fill up the missing pics of the story. Once the album was complete it could be returned for prizes including a sports bike.
They even had one for Space Jam as well. The albums and separately sold stickers were sold back in 1999. They were both popular at school and amongst other kids my age group.
At the beginning of the album, there was a pic of Cathy Bowman as a sticker which needed to be added. It showed a picture of a girl who was clearly not
What's more is she was wearing sports shoes, which we don't see anywhere on Camilla Belle's Cathy Bowman.
She is around the same age as Camilla Belle and is even wearing the same clothes and even looks quite similar, but not enough to fool the viewer that it is indeed Camilla Belle.
When I re-visited my country back in 2017, I took the Merlin sticker album off my shelf in my room and looked at it. It confirmed my previous questioning. That she is indeed not Camilla Belle and her wearing sports shoes re-verified it.
My curiosity is was she a substitute to Camilla Belle on the production of this sticker album? Was she an original audition? Or was she a fill in for Camilla Belle after she failed or declined the role for photography for the sticker album merchandise?
Most of all, who exactly
is this actress? Where is she now? What does she do?
I can post a pic of her as Cathy Bowman if you like, although the quality is not 100% good. Even if you don't recognize her, you will recognize without difficulty that she is definitely not
Thank you for any answers & discussion on this. Moreover, hope you enjoy your investigation mission with me Update
: To ensure the pic doesn't get lost in the thread, I've added it to this post. Click to enlarge. Anyone know who she is?
