Gini Eastwood

 

 

Lovely and captivating brunette actress and singer Gini Eastwood had an interest in acting and singing ever since she was a little girl.

 

Gini made her stage debut at age four as a bonbon to the Sugar Plum Fairy in a dance school production of "The Nutcracker Suite."

She took dance, violin, guitar, and acrobatic lessons while attending this school. Her parents sent her to a drama camp summer theatre run by Columbia Pictures at age twelve.

 

Eastwood was added to the Talent Farm Stable and spent two additional summers perfecting her craft with lessons, performances, and a backstage apprenticeship.

 

Gini released the modestly successful single "With the World at My Feet" on the Tower Records label while still in high school in upstate New York.

 

Eastwood went on to tour with the 60s folk group the New Christy Minstrels and and joined the psychedelic rock band The Hobbits in 1968. Gini sang vocals on the 1968 Hobbits album "Men and Doors" and on the 1969 album "Back from Middle Earth".

 

Moreover, she portrayed Mary Magdelene in the original concert tour of the hit musical "Jesus Christ, Superstar," acted in a May, 1972 Broadway stage production of the rock opera "Hard Job Being God", which ran from May 15, 1972 to May 20, 1972  and worked as a studio session singer (she was even the golden voice for McDonald's).

 

Eastwood made her film debut in the obscure feature "The Wanted Ones," which was shot in Spain in 1968. Gini gave an excellent and compelling performance as intense, brooding and mysterious hippie chick Maureen in the wonderfully offbeat and original one-of-a-kind 70s drive-in cult oddity "Pick-up" 1975.

 

After tackling her sole lead role in "Pick-up," Eastwood did more session work in the music industry as well as sung and wrote commercial jingles. Gini Eastwood still occasionally acts in community theatre and works as a singing aerobics instructor.
