Marilyn Monroe Look Alike-Impersonator References

John Gilmore, author of Inside Marilyn Monroe:
"I am an author who had been an actor until the early 1960's. Marilyn Monroe was a friend. Our sporadic acquaintanceship spanned the years from 1953 (when I first met Marilyn) until 1960 when we were to have starred in a film together, THE STRIPPER, at 20th Century Fox studios. I have authored a book of memoirs about Marilyn, INSIDE MARILYN MONROE, published in 2007, based on my relationship with her. I have been a keynote speaker at a number of Memorials for Marilyn, and met Holly Beavon at a fan-based get-together celebrating Marilyn's birthday. Over the years I have encountered a number of Marilyn impersonators, and was never overly impressed. I found there was something usually missing in the individuals (apart from the blonde wigs and 'Marilyn-like' dresses). What I found lacking was a sort of internal energy--something radiating from the individual apart from the surface glamor. Holly Beavon possessed this energy. It was as though once again, after all the years, I was experiencing Marilyn. It is a feeling that far transcends the surface energy and mannerisms presented by others attempting to portray Marilyn. Holly and I posed for a photograph present at the party, and he asked that we kiss. It was a strange moment--for those few seconds, it was as though at least 47 years dissolved."

You truly were Marilyn that night! Thanks very much for a great performance. Everybody, including my husband AND Johnny loved it.You made it an evening none of the guests will ever forget. The feedback we get from the attending guests is nothing less than "a stellar performance". If and when we need Marilyn again, we'll certainly think of you!

Holly was the hit of the dinner concert event on the Central Coast of CA! Her look, dress, hair, body language, voice and even her sense of humor was oh so wonderfully Marilyn Monroe. She was beautiful and charming as she sang and riffed comedy with the audience on stage. Then she mingled with the dinner crowd to the delight of all. She even did some swing dancing with some lucky guys. Nobody wanted to leave without getting their picture taken with her, including an older gentleman who had met the real Marilyn! When you can impress someone who has seen the real thing, that is something. Thank you Holly for making the evening extra special. It would not have been the same without you.

On a 5 point scale, I'd give Holly a 10 for her performance! Holly is not only captivating as Marilyn Monroe, but one of the sweetest persons I've met in a while. Professional, accomodating, and fun. Fabulous job.
Holly was Marilyn that night! Everybody absolutely roared with laughter at her antics, and her singing voice is true Marilyn. All of the guests, including my husband, whose birthday we celebrated, loved her performance. She made the whole evening a great success. We shall certainly keep Holly in mind for future occasions. Thank you Holly!

I wanted to tell you what a pleasure it was to work with your performers. Everyone was wonderful, accommodating and the guests had an amazing time. The men googled over Marilyn and Scott brought the house down! But more than that, they were all so nice and easy to work with.

I would like to thank you for making my dad's birthday a big success, you are truly beautiful. I will highly recommend you to everyone who needs a beauty like you. God bless.

I want to thank you so much for being part of the party. You are sensational and you made my night memorable.

Everyone is still talking about your performance! I think you were the highlight of the whole evening. (Culver City Chamber of Commerce 90th Anniversary)

We had Holly Beavon perform as Marilyn Monroe in San Diego for my father's 85th birthday party. She was a perfect Marilyn and we all thoroughly enjoyed her performance and would recommend her highly!!!

Holly was superb!! She worked with us on the timing. Handled a last-minute request beautifully (thanks for the lipstick decorations). Gorgeous woman and amazing singing voice. Quick witted while interacting with the birthday boy and was Marilyn Monroe from the moment she got there until the moment she left. Everyone had so much fun. I wish I could have her at all my parties! :.) Will certainly recommend her. Thank you "Marilyn". DeeDee Fried

Holly was a huge hit at our rehearsal dinner. She was prompt, fun, energetic, and plain adorable!

I would give a 10 rating rather than a 5 for Holly's performance. Holly is not only captivating as Marilyn Monroe, but one of the sweetest persons I've met in a while. Professional, accomodating, and fun. Fabulous job.

Please wait.
