Life Story of P.J. Soles

P.J. (Pamela Jayne) Soles was born on July 17, 1950 in Frankfurt, Germany. Her father came from Holland and her mother from New Jersey. Because her father was working for an international insurance company, the family moved all over the world.

When she was at Briarcliff College, she wanted to become the first woman ambassador to the Soviet Union. This career goal changed when she visited the Actors Studio in New York City. She moved to Manhattan and began acting in commercials and modeling for fashion magazines. She was married to J. Steven Soles during her years in New York, but then made the move to Los Angeles to work in television and movies. At this time, she and Soles' got divorced, but she decided to keep her name as P.J. Soles. She was among the hundreds of actors auditioning for Brian De Palma and George Lucas in their joint casting session for Carrie (1976) and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). After Carrie, she went to Georgia to film Our Winning Season...

In her death scene in Carrie (1976), she is knocked unconscious by a wild water hose; in actuality, the hose tore her eardrum.

John Carpenter wanted her for his film Halloween (1978) after seeing Carrie (1976). He wrote the part of Lynda especially for her because of the way she said the word "totally.".

She wore a red baseball cap to her audition for Carrie (1976), which director Brian De Palma loved. He told her to bring it with her when they started shooting. The first thing he said to her on the set was, "Did you bring your red baseball hat?" She ended up wearing that hat for the majority of the film.
