Blair's Girls: Nightwoman #1
Played by Jennifer
Campbell (credited as Jen Campbell)
(1997-1999 TV Series)
Nightman, also spelled Night Man, was a syndicated, live-action
superhero television series. The character of Nightwoman only
appeared twice throughout the series, each by a different
actress. Both actresses did a commendable job and are as pretty
as can be. Jen Campbell appeared as Nightwoman in the episode
"Nightwoman" from February 9, 1998 during the show's first
season. As the story goes, Lorrie Jarvis was once a police
officer. Going undercover as a mobster's girlfriend, her identity
is discovered and she is crippled by that same mobster. Paralyzed
from the neck down, she is confined to a wheelchair. Lorrie's
father, who designs advanced weaponry for the U.S. Government, invents
a bodysuit for her that will allow her to walk again. In
addition, she can also project electrical stun blasts. After a
two year hiatus, she returns to take out the mobster that crippled her.
Although the title of this episode calls her
Nightwoman, she is never
referred to once as Nightwoman and doesn't assume any other
identity. There is no real relationship between Nightman and
Nightwoman. They don't have any of the same powers and she wasn't
inspired by Nightman in any way to fight crime. She could have
been called anything, but "Nightwoman" sounded cool so they did
it. The name fits because she has this really pretty bodysuit
with glowing stars all over it. She would be able to blend in
easily with the night sky.
Nightwoman's motivation is vengeance, and she is
Nobody gets in her way. Lorrie Jarvis is angry. She does
whatever it takes to get the job done and almost always has the
advantage over her adversaries. Martial arts skills also comes in
handy. It's believable to see actress Jen Campbell beating up on
bad guys. She's 5-foot-10 (a very good height) with an athletic
build. Ms. Campbell won the Miss Hawaiian Tropic International in
1989 and was also on TV's "Baywatch Hawaii" for a few years.
Nightwoman #1 is very different from Nightwoman #2,
but each has their
own charms and brings something special to the role.
