Hillary Clinton’s starring role in little-known 1970s science-fiction revenge-thriller Laserblast has been a well-guarded secret UNTIL NOW.
You will not see Hillary Clinton’s name on the IMDb cast list for the 1978 film Laserbast, and yet she was undoubtedly the star of the movie.
Laserblast is a 1978 science fiction film about unhappy teenager, Billy Duncan, who discovers an alien laser cannon and goes on a murderous rampage.
In an early scene we see Hillary’s character emerge from a spacecraft with a friend, she sees what we understand to be a zombie and, in a dramatic move, shoots the offending creature with her laser gun. She then returns to the space craft only to return to the action near the climax of the movie for a tense stand-off with the film’s anti-heroic protagonist, Billy.
It is believed that Clinton regards her youthful foray into acting as an embarrassment, and has meticulously removed her name from any and all references to the film.
“It’s perfectly legitimate for an artist to remove their name from a film they’ve worked on,” explains Hollywood historian Harry Powers, “many films, one example being Alien 3, have no director for precisely this reason.”

Though you will find no reference to Hillary Clinton in the credits, the current Democrat Presidential Candidate is immediately recognisable.
“Oh that’s clearly her,” says one science fiction fan at a recent viewing, “she’s much younger and prettier but that’s definitely her.”
“Based on this performance, the lady missed her true calling,” says one Laserblast fan. Many fans of the cult film echo this sentiment. Hillary Clinton could have been a star if her political ambitions not supplanted her devotion to the cinematic arts.
“This is her only recorded performance,” says one fan, replaying the climactic stand-off between Clinton’s character and teen anti-hero Billy Duncan, “”we must savour it.”
