A casting man from the soon-to-be-produced movie Casanova Brown needed a baby. Coming to Hollywood’s St. John’s Hospital, he pointed to a calmly sleeping Cheryl and said, “That one please, if her parents approve.” They did. She was cast as the son of Gary Cooper and Teresa Wright!
“Happily,” Cheryl says, “I didn’t get typed.”
“Then,” Cheryl reports, “Mother told me word got around that I was quiet baby, not a scene spoiler and 28 days later, I appeared in another movie. This time as a girl.” (quoted from article by Erskine Johnson)
By the time she starred in Daktari, Cheryl appeared in over 100 films.
Here’s some shots from her debut appearance on the silver screen:
