Nova—Planet of the Apes and Beneath the Planet of the Apes\ Susan—Cocoon and Cocoon II Unnamed woman—Planet of the Apes (2001)
Nova is every man’s fantasy—a sexy woman who wore nothing but a loincloth and never said a word until the final scene of her final appearance. She called out Taylor’s name, prompting him to set off the nuclear bomb to kill everyone remaining on the battered earth. Because he knew once women learn to speak your name, there is nothing but nagging in your future.
Harrison has had a scant acting career since her debut in the late ‘60’s. Little matter. She married uber-producer Richard D. Zanuck, who has been behind some of the biggest films of the last forty years: The Sugarland Express, The Eiger sanction, Jaws, The Verdict, Driving Miss Daisy, and Wall*E among them. She probably does not care nova is the only role anyone remembers her playing. Too busy eolling in money and all.
