That would have to be Lauren Gaffney. My mom bought me a copy of A Very Young Actress when I was 10, and after reading that I wanted to play Annie for a community theater. I have curly red hair naturally, but when it's long it kind of straighens out a little. So when I played Annie, I sort of had that "Lauren look" which I was happy about; you know the sausage-curl, Shirley Temple ringlet thing that Lauren always had. But now I'm an adult and I work as an EMT, so I keep my hair boy-short and layered. So now I look like I'm wearing Aileen Quinn's wig all the time. Aileen Quinn is my second favorite Annie, so I don't mind it, but I'm thinking about giving myself blond highlights for Christmas. But I've never had blond highlights before.
