“I can remember a casting list of people for a film to be made called Shaft, which became a big hit,” she explained.
“And one of the greatest casting agents Maude Spector, had put our names down.”
Shaft went on to become a film series, with the original released in 1971, followed by Shaft’s Big Score! the following year, then Shaft in Africa (1973).
There was a remake in 2000 and then another in 2019.
