Julia Russell/Bonny Castle In Original Sin 2001
Character Is A Prostitute
“Original Sin” is a film that doesn’t seem original. It features a plot recycled from so many past movies. A wealthy but single businessman decides to purchase a mail-order bride for convenience. Who should show up? Julia Russell, a knock-out! However, looks can be deceiving. Julia is Bonny Castle, a con artist, prostitute, and actress. She has a well-oiled scam where she works with a fellow actor to steal money from wealthy men. But as the movie continues, Julia/Bonny falls for her mark. Then she suddenly vanishes. The plot thickens from that point on.
