Who's That Girl? (In the Bowie Videos)  

Does anybody know who the young woman is in the Blue Jean video (or Jazzin' For Blue Jean short film)? How about the woman (not the blonde) in the Ashes to Ashes video? In a way, it looks like the same woman in the later Blue Jean video, but don't think it is.

Can anyone here tell me who the women are, and how did they come about being in the videos (were they his backup singers, girlfriend at the time, or just some cast actresses)?

Thanks!

If you want women from videos, go for Thursday's Child.

"Hating Bowie in 1997 means hating everything overblown, theatrical, pretentious, pseudo-intellectual and jarringly progressive in the past 25 years of pop. In other words, everything great about pop. It also means hating yourself."

Huh? I simply asked who the women are in the Ashes to Ashes and the Blue Jean videos because 1) want to prove it is not the same woman, and 2) to find out who the actress(es) is/are. Trying to settle a dispute. Someone is trying to tell me it is the same chick from the Absolute Beginners movie, and I don't think it is at all.

Does anybody have proof???

All three are different.

Dignity is valuable, but our lives are valuable too.

The two girls in the China Girl video are not both Chinese -- The one he kisses is and the other one who smears her lipstick in disdain at the end of the video was born in Grimsby, England.

Simply amanzing. First of all, who asked anything about the China Girl video? This thread was intended only to find out the names of the actresses in the Ashes to Ashes and Blue Jean videos..no others. Yet, no one has been able to answer that yet (and my internet searches for the names have so far been unsuccessful). I would have truly thought there must be a Bowie fanatic here on TW who would have all this trivial knowledge!

Please help. A bet is riding on this.

The actress in the Blue Jean promo (and the parent film Jazzin' For Blue Jean) is Louise Scott whose only other known film outing was as "Tree Protestor 2" in The Ultimate Truth (according to IMDb), a film from 2003.

The Ashes To Ashes actresses are Darla-Jane Gilroy and Judith Frankland. Info here

I don't know why but I feel the former is the blonde-haired one and the latter is the one cloaked in black opposite Steve Strange from Visage. Don't know why, and I am probably wrong.

Reason being is that Darla-Jane is now a UK fashion lecturer here's her course info and Judith is now a DJ in Milan (no known link).
