Interesting Facts

1 Her father's name was Cyril Jones, and her mother's name was Frances Peltch.
2 With her friend, entertainment reporter Nelson Aspen, Lynley appeared in several interstitial showbiz segments covering a variety of topics. For Australia's #1 morning show Sunrise (2003), she reflected on the remake of The Poseidon Adventure (1972). On TV Guide Television (1999), she discussed her long career in television, film and on Broadway. For "New with Nelson", she revealed some of her Oscar picks for that year and named her all time favorite Oscar winner as Frank Sinatra.
3 Was close friends with actor/dancer Fred Astaire. In the 1970s, it was rumored in the press that they might even marry; however, 81-year old Astaire wed the two and a half years younger Robyn Smith in 1980. Carol is quoted extensively in the book "Fred Astaire: His Friends Talk" (1988), by Sarah Giles.
4 Although in later years she claimed to have sung "The Morning After" in The Poseidon Adventure (1972), her voice was in fact dubbed by studio singer Renée Armand.
5 Is a huge fan of Cameron Diaz, one of her favorite films being There's Something About Mary (1998).
6 Lynley owned the boots and pendant she wears in The Poseidon Adventure (1972). She complained during production that the boots were shrinking due to constant immersion in water, making them extremely uncomfortable.
7 She was featured on the April 22, 1957 cover of LIFE Magazine. Walt Disney saw her photo and article, and decided to cast her in his release The Light in the Forest (1958). It was Carol's debut (she received an "and introducing" credit in the opening titles), but it was also her swan song for Disney's studio. Opposite James MacArthur, a Broadway actor, both gave convincing performances, receiving mixed critical reaction, mostly because of the entrenched polarized "pro" and "anti" Disney factions.
8 Her only child is a daughter with ex-husband Michael Selsman named Jill Selsman (born March 2, 1962).
9 "Carolyn Lee" was her modeling name -- a name that was already registered with Actors' Equity, so she changed it to use the homophone "Carol Lynley".
10 She had an affair off and on with David Frost for 18 years.


1 I've never been in a scandal. I've never been caught running naked down a highway. I've not tried to shoot anybody. Nobody's ever tried to shoot me. My child is legitimate... I've never been to Betty Ford... No porn... No drug addictions... I've outlived three of my doctors. So if you're going to write a juicy book, I've got a problem.
