Season Hubley on Kung Fu

In 1974, Season Hubley was a guest star in the third season debut of Kung Fu. Titled "Blood of the Dragon," it was a feature length episode that was later split into two parts for later rebroadcast. Alongside a trio of other famous guest stars (Patricia Neal and real life father-son Eddie and Edward Albert), Season Hubley played a long lost relative David Carradine's Kwai Chang Caine character. A popular show at the time, Season Hubley's Kung Fu appearance was great exposure for the actress who had only begun acting two years previous. Additional press was garnered when it was revealed that Season Hubley and David Carradine were linked romantically (it was even announced that they were to be married...but he eventually went back to his previous girlfriend, Barbara "Seagull" Hershey).

Season Hubley did a great job playing the young Margit Kingsley McLean on Kung Fu, lending her appealing presence to the show and looking quite beautiful throughout. She also looks lovely with long hair (even if only some of it was her real hair). This project was also one of the few period pieces Season Hubley took part in her 25 year acting career and it makes me think she could have done some good work in other historical films or TV shows.
