‘The character called for army shorts and a loose T-shirt and no makeup-up,’ she recalled.  

‘I was sitting there feeling really good. And I see the door open and I see coming towards me, silhouetted Sharon in cut off denim shorts with high heel clogs and a white singlet, I think with no bra.’ 

Demonstrating her entrance, Kerry added: ‘I am not gay but anyone would have turned. I lost the job within a second.’

While King Solomon’s Mines was largely panned by critics, the film did serve as a springboard to greater roles for Sharon, including miniseries War and Remembrance (1989), Total Recall (1990) and erotic thriller Basic Instinct (1992). 

Meanwhile, Kerry has been enjoying her foray into reality television, telling the Sun-Herald that she is doing the show to complete the ‘third act’ in her accomplished career.

‘This feels like a third act. I can do this gracefully, or I can do it in the wildest way that I can,’ she shared.

‘I just want to be completely irresponsible in there. Ever since my boys left, I feel I’m allowed to be more mischievous and cheeky.’

‘For a girl who wanted to be Katharine Hepburn, this is certainly a turn in the wrong direction,’ she joked.
