Lea Thompson did double duty (or technically triple duty) in Back to the Future when she played Lorraine, Marty’s mother who falls in love with her son. While some actresses most be put off by this, Thompson says that the plot was right up her alley. She told The Hollywood Reporter:

I appreciated the sort of odd, off-kilter subversive nature of the craziness of your mom falling in love with you and if you don't get your mom and dad to'll never be born. The idea that mom and dad have to get it on, I think we can all kind of get that. So it appealed to my sense of humor.

There are two things that we remember from Beastmaster, the fact that the titular master of beasts has a pseudo magical power to control animals and Tanya Roberts. As the queen of b-movies in the 1980s Roberts was a teen boy’s dream and she says that she chose to appear in Beastmaster because there wasn’t as much focus on her. She told Fangoria:

I chose The Beastmaster because it gave me the chance to slip into movies without getting the whole book thrown at me. The movie wasn’t built around me. I was just an actor in it, and it was a good chance for me to be seen.
