Joan Severance is a credit to model-turned-actresses everywhere. Why waste that statuesque, black-haired, high-assed beauty on getting married and raising kids somewhere back in your native Texas? When Joan's big acting break on the 1980s network sensation Wiseguy failed to fire up an A-list career, the extra-stacked Severance promptly took her place at the head of the Bs. Joan began a creative partnership on Showtime's skintillating Red Shoe Diaries, where she was muff-baring muse to mentor Zalman King. King is the crown prince of skinsational erotic thrillers, and his expertise is epitomized in Lake Consequence (1992). Joan shined in an outdoor sex scene. She shined in an indoor sex scene. She shined wetly in a shower stall lesbo sex scene. What, no underwater sex scene? They had a lake right there, for God's sake. Well, that's what's great about Joan Severance. There is always more to look forward to.
