A Bacon Number is not about how much you love bacon - then I would be a one - but about the fewest number of movie/show links that will connect the actor Kevin Bacon and any other actor. Or extra.
As a sophomore in high school I was an extra in a B horror flick called, at the time, The Coming. It was about the haunted life of a descendant of the Salem witch accuser Ann Putman, played by Susan Swift. I was the girl's classmate and sat next to her on the bus. I got paid $25 a day and spent a night inside the Witch Museum for filming, an entire day in a cemetery, and a few days hanging around the set on Chestnut St. And, I didn't have to go to school those days.
It was a really fun experience. I think I am in the film for 2.4 seconds.
After a name change to Burned at the Stake, the movie went directly to cable. Despite being an amazingly bad movie (I did see it at one point), in it I am rocking the bad perm, gradient tint glasses, and a mauve A-line plaid skirt. For these reasons alone my family would LOVE to get their hands on it.
Without further ado, here is how I am connected to Kevin Bacon:
That's me (via The Coming )> Susan Swift (via Harper Valley P.T.A) > Clint Howard (via My Dog Skip) > Kevin Bacon: 3.
