The Empress From ‘The Neverending Story’ — Where is She Now?
The Childlike Empress was our first love, but where did she go?
When we first saw the 1984 German-American fantasy movie, 'The NeverEnding Story,' we walked away wanting several things: a flying dog friend, a snake amulet that would protect us, and a girlfriend like the Childlike Empress. Of course, we were like seven, and once we stopped being seven we kind of stopped thinking about her...Until now. We found her!
Tami Stronach is alive and well and running her own dance company in Brooklyn, NY. She is head choreographer and dances in her productions, known for creating "magical, illusory worlds musing on life's ordinary struggles."
It's comforting to know that the empress is still around, and that we still kinda wish she was our girlfriend.
