Christine Belford takes on a "Ruffian"

Christine Belford just has one of those faces, you know? When you spot her in a scene, you just know you've seen her star in lots of other stuff. BRBTV just loved her in that "Wonder Woman" episode, "Wonder Woman Meets Baroness Paula Von Gunther." (Not to mention she has always had an uncanny resemblance to Jaclyn Smith!) Besides her role as Susan Farragut on "Dynasty," she's done a ton of other classic TV, like "Battlestar Galactica," "Barnaby Jones," "Fantasy Island," "Murder, She Wrote," "Family Ties" and so much more. Now, Belford has a new project planned for 2007.

Called "Ruffian," the TV movie offers "a look at the life of the thoroughbred filly that dominated horse racing in the early 1970s," according to its IMDb page. Belford plays a character named Barbara Janney in the film, directed by Yves Simoneau and written by Jim Burnstein and Ross Parker. Belford's husband, Nicholas Pryor, a prolific actor himself, plays Stuart Janney in the film. Sam Shepard is also among the large cast.
