Carole Wells: On her new book Highjacked: An Eyewitness Account of Evil


Carole Wells

On her new book Highjacked: An Eyewitness Account of Evil

Carole Wells began working as an actress in films, television and musical and dramatic theater at 12 years old. At seventeen, she sang the coloratura solo in Puccini's operatic Messa di Gloria at the Hollywood Bowl and co-starred in the television series National Velvet, and later, Pistols ‘n Petticoats. She has appeared in 12 motion pictures (including Funny Lady), and over 100 television shows.

She shares her true story of what happened in 1977 when what would have been an idyllic honeymoon with her new husband, landed her unwittingly in the middle of twin political crises: a terrorist hijacking of an airplane and a Bangladesh military bloody coup d’état. The agonizing encounter with power-crazed terrorists permanently changed her attitude about terror, trust, and life.

She had nearly hypnotized herself into suppressing the fear of that horrific week forty years ago until old wounds were opened with each news account of recent, rampant terrorist attacks and the fear it instills in all of us.  She wrote Highjacked

to shed light on the existence of sadistic humans who terrorize, and to demonstrate how Americans must first recognize their own hatred in order to work towards promoting peace.

Carole recently co-wrote and starred in a short film “The Falling Leaves” that premiered in July at the La Jolla Film Festival.
