There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


The guy is Alexis Denisof, and my guess for the girl is...Claire Coffee?

Dunno who the blonde is. Me like!

I watched it twice, and her smile at :51 looked familiar. So if you don't know who it is, how do we find out?

EDIT: Pretty sure it's not Claire Coffee. If IMDb can be trusted she was just 7 years old when Harrison recorded that song in 1987, and Denisof was 21.

EDIT 2: Wikipedia says that Gary Weis directed two different videos for the song, and this one was the first. It identifies Denisof but not the girl - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Got_My_Mind_Set_on_You

I saw that wiki page. I found it odd that Alexis was credited, but not the girl.

Which prompted me to ask.

Real good look at her face is at the :46 mark.

That'd be a darn good guess. Similar look, age. However, there's no mention of her appearing in the video, nor did she ever live in England.

We carry in our hearts the true country, and that cannot be stolen.


I think the girl is Amy Stock-Poynton, who played Bill's step-mom Sissy in 1989's Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

I'd bet the video was shot here in the States, either New York or LA. I know George Harrison is English, but you should be aware that Alexis is not, in spite of his accent as Wesley.

I just figured that since Alexis DID move to London when he was 17, and some of his early work ( Beginning his career in the film industry, Denisof was the fight director for a stage production of Hamlet, and in 1991 was the fight director for the BBC's The Other Side, Romeo and Juliet, and The Soul's Dark Night.[5] Alexis' first lead was alongside Christopher Lee in the feature film Murder Story where he played an investigative reporter ) , that the video was shot over there, and the actress would be English as well.

Then why no mention of appearing in the video ? Alexis, who has had a decent career, has it in his bio. Her resume' is stark in comparison. Why would she omit working w/ George Harrison, at least appearing in one of his music videos , when her work history is so limited ?

She does bear a resemblance, but according to her bio, she's 8 or so years older than Alexis. The girl in the video looks his age, or a bit younger.


So, who the heck IS that girl ???

Okay yeah, Amy would have been too old to be the girl in that video. I remember her from the movie Summer School and the tv show Dallas.

I'll try again, but we may never know.

I won't make it quest. I just find it odd that we know Alexis but nothing of the girl.
She must not have done much after that. I do find it a cool bit of trivia on Alexis though.

Like how Alyson starred in ' My stepmother is an Alien '.

A boy & a girl see each other in a amusement arcade. She sees a ballerina
figurine she likes, & the boy gets it for her. That video?

I'm tryin' to find the girl; so far, she's a mystery to everyone who's commented.

Interview with Alexis Denisof, 2003

age=2


On filming the video for the song: It was his 1st job; he was an unknown.
No doubt, the pretty girl was also unknown.

Good mp3 extended version; no girl

Peeked at the interview. Sad that he never got to meet George Harrison.

Thanks for posting.
