Blind And Beautiful

Shelley was blind and beautiful in her 1989 film feature Blind Fear. She played Erika Breen, a blind switchboard operator at a lodge that had just been sold and was being boarded up. She was on her last night there, but a gang of criminals invaded the lodge that same night. But Erica managed to outsmart them all; and manages to... There's a surprise ending.

In July 2009, Shelley told her fans at the Hollywood Collectors Show a little bit about her experience filming Blind Fear. She said that she wore a type of contact lens that blocked the vision and literally made her blind. She couldn't see anything when they were filming her scenes. (Thank you so much to Channel Surfing: Charlie's Angels for that bit of trivia.)
