Actress director Angelica Page (formerly known as Angelica Torn) was officially inducted into the celebrated Fame-Wall at legendary theatrical watering hole Hurley’s Saloon at an event hosted by Dale Badway to benefit The Actors Fund.
Torn, the daughter of stage and film legends actor Rip Torn and the late Oscar-winning Geraldine Page, had her portrait, painted by Jim Warren, unveiled at the event (other Fame-Wall inductees include John Stamos, Kelsey Grammer and Kristin Chenoweth). Looking very 21st century in a short skirted black evening, she posed with her portrait in which she wears a sexy, va-va-voom screen goddess gown that belonged to her mother.
Page (who’s legally changed her name) has, this year, directed a limited-run of the off-Broadway musical “Soldier’s Song” and starred in a production of Eugene O’Neill’s “Anna Christie” at The Actors Studio (both here and in LA). She also starred as Marie Curie in “The Radiant” a new play last spring. She was slated to appear at Guild Hall on August 28 in the Naked Angels production of “Sideman” which was cancelled due to Hurricane Irene. She received the Helen Hayes Award for her leading role in “Sideman”. Ms. Page has numerous television and film and has been singled out for praise for her work in “Nobody’s Fool” with Paul Newman and “The Sixth Sense”.
Recently, Page has written two new pilots for cable and is in development with six new films and three plays to be produced over the next four years. She is a lifetime member of the Actors Studio and serves on its board of directors. Actively involved with the charities PAVE and Opening Act, she is developing a foundation for the arts to foster emerging artists in her mother’s name.
Among the guests on hand to applaud the honoree were producer Barbara Ligeti, Federico Castelluccio Michael Alden, Brendan Cohen and several hundred other guests.
Fame Wall creator Dale Badway has hosted events with such entertainment icons as Whoopi Goldberg, Hugh Jackman, John Stamos, Gina Gershon, Chita Rivera, Brooke Shields, Kristin Chenoweth, and Bernadette Peters.

Angelica’s Torn no more
Actress and director Angelica Torn says she will no longer be known by her troubled but now sober father, Rip Torn’s last name. She’ll now be called Angelica Page, using her late mother acting legend Geraldine Page’s last name instead. Angelica, who has changed her name legally and already registered it with the Screen Actors Guild, told us, “The time has come to now honor my mother by taking her last name from this point on in my life.” She and her father are not currently on speaking terms. She told us, “In the last several months I’ve come to realize that my father and I just don’t see eye to eye on so many things, and I’ve found I no longer have anything in common with him. Nothing personal, but sometimes a rock is just too heavy to lift, and I’m committed to leading a clean and sober lifestyle.” She plans to launch the Geraldine Page Foundation to give grants for acting and the arts. She is also releasing her debut album, aptly titled “Torn No More.”
