      Which child actress appeared in both its pilot episode, and earlier in Terry Gilliam’s The Adventures of Baron Munchhausen.

      (No, it’s not Uma Thurman, she was 17 in Gilliam’s film)

      Clues:

      Her first appearance on screen was at the age of four, as Molly in the film One Magic Christmas. She was in the pilot episode for Friday the 13th – The Series, as well as appearing in a small role in William Fruet’s sci-fi horror film Blue Monkey, both in 1987. At age eight, she was cast as Ramona Quimby in the television series Ramona, based on Beverly Cleary’s books.

      That same year, she played one of the lead characters in Terry Gilliam’s The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. (she) burst into the public eye in 1990 as Sara Stanley on the popular CBC television series Road to Avonlea. The series made her famous and financially independent, and she was hailed as “Canada’s Sweetheart” by the popular press. The show was picked up by the Disney Channel for distribution in the United States. At the age of 12 (around 1991), (she) attended an awards ceremony while wearing a peace sign to protest the first Gulf War. Disney executives asked her to remove it, and she refused. This soured her relationship with Disney, but she continued on Road to Avonlea until 1994. The show ran until 1996; (she) did return as Sara Stanley for an episode in 1995 and for the series finale.

      It had nothing to do with Jason Voorhees, or his hobby of finding interesting ways to kill horny teenagers in some campground. If I remember correctly, the show revolved around these two 20 somethings tracking down cursed antiques and some connection to their uncle selling his soul to ME, and then he didn’t hold up his end of the deal.

      Ironically, there was another show called “Reaper” a few years later which had a nearly identical plot. Except they actually had an actor play me in that show. Ray Wise was probably the best version of me on TV… at least until Tom Ellis came along.
