I found this by accident....thought I would share...lol


A graduate of Dartmouth, Jean Passanante met John Sayles while working in summer stock at North Conway, New Hampshire, the location where Return of the Secaucus Seven was made. In that film, Sayles cast her as Irene Roseblue, the member of the group who works as a political consultant in Washington. She also played Rose in Lianna. In the early 1980s, when Passanante was working as a theater producer in New York, she encouraged Sayles to write his play New Hope For the Dead and helped him get it produced at the Manhattan Theater Club. In recent years, Passanante has worked as a literary agent and a writer of soap opera scripts (for which she has won one Daytime Emmy Award). Secaucus Seven and Lianna remain the only two films she has ever acted in.
