MOST TRUE-TO-LIFE STORY


JORDY'S ACCIDENT, CAPITOL
Actor Todd Curtis crashed through a car windshield, and art imitated life on CAPITOL when the writers created a similar story line for his character, Jordy Clegg. It was a rare chance for an audience to see exactly what happens to someone who suffers a traumatic accident. CAPITOL didn't stint on realism either, for Curtis's scarred face was shown painfully close up. Also, the psychological repercussions of the accident and Jordy's struggle for identity as he lived through the healing process were carefully explored. It was a bold move for CAPITOL and a brave one for Curtis, who both merit praise and congratulations for their work.
