Barbara Eden: born Barbara Jean Morehead, 23 August 1931, Tucson Arizona. On screen from 1956 at age 22, played tomboy Augie Poole in Ride the Wild Surf (1964), finally hit the big time on the small screen in 1965 on I Dream of Jeannie (TV 1965-70). In 2011: ‘Ten years have passed since the lowest point in Eden’s life: the death of her son Matthew, at 35, from a heroin overdose. “I have spoken about drugs,” she says, “but not about losing Matthew. I think a loss is something that each person handles in their own way. I’m not a counselor. All I know is that I live with it every day.“‘
