Sandra Knight met now-legendary Jack Nicholson in Martin Landau's
acting class when they were both a couple of "unknowns". Her
acting career took off a bit earlier than Jack's. She starred in
a number of popular TV shows and movies. In 1963, she and husband
Jack Nicholson starred as the leads in the horror flick, "The
Terror". That film is probably her best-loved work, although she
does have a number of other great roles to her credit.
Incidentally, Sandra was pregnant during filming of
"The Terror". In 1963, she and Jack Nicholson had daughter
Jennifer. Jennifer went on to do some acting as an adult, but not
as much as either of her parents. By 1966, the bulk of Sandra
Knight's acting career was done. She had a few roles in the
1990s, but has mostly concentrated on her artwork. Sandra started
painting in the 60s as more of a hobby, but it became a life-long
Knight and Nicholson divorced in 1968.
Nicholson finally saw his big break in 1969 with the iconic film, "Easy
Rider" and continues to be a major film star. Knight later
remarried and relocated to Hawaii. Both she and second husband,
John Stephenson, are deeply spiritual. In the 1980s, the happy
couple started a production company called Synergy Productions.
Also in that decade, Knight started writing screenplays. She has
been serving on the Board of Directors for HIFF (Hawaii International
Film Festival) for many years. She has also served with the
Contemporary Museum of Hollywood and the Honolulu Symphony.
Sandra Knight has done a lot to bring culture and a dash of that
"Hollywood feel" to Hawaii.
