Crewson, Wendy

The Toronto section of an international media networking club for women named Women in Film & Television & Film (WIFT), recently gave Crewson a lifetime achievement award at its gala annual dinner in Toronto. Hamilton, Ontario-born Crewson appears to have been given the award because she played the role of Harrison Ford’s wife in a completely forgettable movie several years ago, and because she’s among the dozen middle-aged Hollywood actors who look enough like Christine Lahti and Mimi Rogers to appear credible in the role of a Washington, D.C. suburbanite wife married to a deputy director of a semi-secret U.S. government department. We guess that’s a life-time achievement worth having, as is becoming a more or less permanent presenter at the annual Gemini awards because of it.
