When Roger Corman cast 1981's "Galaxy of Terror," he was presented with a major challenge. He needed an attractive actress to agree to play Dameia. Most actresses would run away screaming at the thought of having to endure Dameia's demise on screen. See, the beautiful Dameia would be jumped by a giant worm, stripped naked by the worm, sprayed with the worm's sticky juices, and raped by it. Not quite the Scarlett O'Hara role of the 1980s. However, a tall, blonde beauty named Taaffe O'Connell displayed an open mind. When Mr. Corman described the role to her.....she smiled. Corman had his actress! Let us delve into "Galaxy of Terror."
