Betsy Brantley

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Betsy Brantley (born September 20, 1955) is an American actress. Brantley was born Rutherfordton, North Carolina. She is the older sister of producer/screenwriter Duncan Brantley, and formerly married to Simon Dutton and Steven Soderbergh. Betsy studied acting at the Central School of Speech and Drama in the United Kingdom. It was there that she was discovered to film a movie with Sean Connery titled, Five Days One Summer. Like Five Days One Summer, most of her films are based in Europe. Her most famous role, perhaps, is her portrayal of Neely Pritt in the cult classic Shock Treatment. She also played alongside Pierce Brosnan and Michael Caine in the film version of "The Fourth Protocol" and enjoyed a cameo in the Ashley Judd movie "Double Jeopardy". Brantley was also the body double for Jessica Rabbit in Who Framed Roger Rabbit?. Along with several other films, Betsy has been a cast member in quite a few television shows. These shows include Tour of Duty and Second Noah. On Tour of Duty, she played the role of Dr. Jennifer Seymour (later "Major Jennifer Seymour"). On Second Noah, she played Jesse Beckett, a veterinarian and the mother of eight adopted children. Brantley played Dolph Lundgren's girlfriend in Dark Angel (retitled I Come in Peace in America). She has also appeared as Elsie Cubitt in the Granada Television production of 'The Dancing Men', from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle ...
