After watching threads for the first time I was looking what the stars of the film had also been involved with, to then find that Victoria had been killed at such a young age has really saddened me, such a shame a promising acting career was ended so tragically, my thoughts are with her family.

Thank you for making this site for Victoria! I've just finished watching "Threads" for the first time; she contributed vitally to this harrowing, utterly necessary film.

I'm greatly saddened to find out that Victoria O'Keefe was killed in an automobile accident at the tragically young age of twenty-one. I thought Victoria gave an excellent performance as Jane in "Threads;" she really carried the last third of that movie, including and especially the simply devastating conclusion. I wrote a mini-bio for Ms. O'Keefe on the IMDb, plus added several items for her under other work. I figured it was the least I could for her and her regrettably sparse legacy, Rest in peace, Victoria O'Keefe.

Very nice work! I'm sure all the visitors will appreciate it, thank you.

I have seen Threads many times and recieved a DVD of it only today. I decided to check online what became of Victoria just a few minuites ago and discovered that she passed away in 1990. How sad. She was clearly a promising actress and my thoughts are with Victoria and her family.

I watched threads as a teenager in the 80s and it scared the shit outta me so much I didnt sleep ok till 1989.Every time our fire siren went of i would jump under my bed such was the effect of the film. Was a shame that Victoria passed so young and after a powerful and award winning performance. I hope Victorias watching over us making sure Jane and Ruth dont become a reality RIP

I am saddened to discover that Victoria passed way. I met Victoria whilst she was filming Letty, I was an extra in this and spoke with her briefly after the days filming. I asked her for her autograph and I recall her going a little shy before being encouraged by her guardian to sign my autograph book, I seem to remember her saying it was the 1st time she'd been asked for an Autograph. I still have it. Although it was a brief encounter, she left a lasting impression on me and I am deeply saddened to discover her tragic passing. I was about the same age as Victoria when Letty was being filmed and I will always remember the day I met Victoria as being a very good day in my life.

I knew Threads for a long while, watched it a couple of years ago.

I dug the movie back up the other days and watched it again. Still shocking, remaining stuck in my mind. Although, this time I became curious of who Victoria might be today.

How saddened I was, when I learned that she is dead for almost 20 years by now. It's a weird feeling, you see someone who instantly earns your sympathy, and then this. It almost feels like you lose someone whom you knew good and who might have been a very good friend. This is a really strange feeling.

This feeling was even stronger when I watched the video snippets on this website, seeing her in a completely different role.

Rest in peace Victoria, you just won the heart of another fan.

To the makers of this website: I am overwhelmed how well it is crafted. Simple and informative, my sincere respect and thanks to you. The best memorial she could get. I bet she's proud of you :)

I sincerely hope that this website continues to exist, as long as possible!

Threads is a film that has been with me for a long time, and will continue to do so. I am saddened to have only now learnt of the passing of Victoria.

Excellent site. Warmest regards to her family and friends.

This is a beautiful and unique site B.T.W, and I hope it grows and more like minded people contribute, because Victoria captured the essence of the play, and those who recognise that will come here to say Hi. x

Thank you, it's been a real team effort between myself and Oliver, neither one could complete the site alone - and for all the information it currently holds, I feel the guestbook breathes the most life into it.

I first saw Threads in September 1984, when I was a student, and living uncomfortably close to a major RAF airfield. It burned into my consciousness, this was the reality everyone I knew and myself faced on a daily basis. I remembered Janes role especially vividly. She added immeasurably to the story, with a truly outstanding performance.

Three days ago, I rediscovered the play, via UTube, and was overwhelmed. Sadly that was the place that I learned of Victoria O'Keefes tragic and untimely loss, which has led me to this site.

A terrible loss, to her family, many friends and colleagues, and the craft of acting. x

I was deeply moved after recently watching Threads. It's such a starkly shot, compelling film and it really drove home to me how lucky we are that the situations depicted did not eventuate.

But what gripped me most was the compelling character we are introduced to at the end. Jane. Expertly played by a young, yet emotionally mature actress with these incredible haunting eyes.

Naturally I wanted to find out what other productions she had been in and I will admit actually that I shed a tear when I found that her life had been tragically cut short. Despite the fact that this happened over 18 years ago.

I know the work of this amazing young woman will continue to be discovered. Thank you William and Oliver for putting this page together.

Thank you :)

I saw Threads for the first time in 1992 in class. I was deeply moved by this film and by this beautiful young actress. I finally got around to watching it in the past few days and like a lot of others, became interested to know what had become of Victoria. I was saddened to find out that she had passed in an auto accident so young. Rest in peace Victoria as well as the others who perished in the wreck. You're not forgotten.

I've just recently watched threads and, after seeing Victoria's performance, was genuinely convinced she would, by now, have been something special, its heartbreaking to see someone with so much potential disappear. I'm currently taking my first steps in the acting industry myself, and even though threads was made 3 years before i was even born, i was intrigued by her ability and where it would have led her, and after finding this website i'm saddend to learn we will never know. This site is a truly fitting tribute, and i'm glad to know people are keeping her from fading into history. Rest In Peace

I first saw Threads when I was 12 and recently bought it on dvd. The film seems all the more bleak now I know of Victoria's death. Threads, and in particular the end scene where Victoria's character Jane gives birth, still serves as a powerful reminder why nuclear war must never be allowed to happen.

R.I.P. Victoria and best wishes to friends and family of all who lost their lives that day.

Like many here, I became interested in Victoria after seeing her performance in Threads as a 10 year old. Rewatched the film again recently and again found myself mesmerised by this attractive and talented young actress. I was saddened to hear she died so young in 1990. For me, this fact adds an additional layer of poignancy to her role of Jane in Threads, herself a doomed character. RIP Jane and best regards to her family.

I started to search for Victoria O'Keefe after obtaining Threads on DVD. I had seen the movie as a 10 year old boy and it left a permanent impression on my psyche. While the movie is incredible, I'd have to say that the strongest acting perfomance in the whole movie is from Victoria. She plays the role so completely brilliantly--vacuous and devoid of emotion, yet strong.

So moved by her portrayal of Jane, I was compelled to seek her out in an attempt to communicate to her just how amazing she was in the film. I had no idea about her or the state of her career. It was heartbreaking to find out that she died tragically at such a young age.

And so, Victoria, I raise my glass to you today in this tiny public forum to any and all that care to listen. God bless you!

I welcome any comments--the email address given is active. Just place the word "threads" in the subject line, and you'll receive a prompt response.
