Three other actresses have been called finalists. Kristine Bogen was announced on Turning Point as one of three finalists. Alicia Morton told TV Guide she was one of "nine finalists." And when Heidi Gagne played Annie for a professional production, the theater did publicity on her as a finalist for Annie20th.
There were three girls who read for Annie on Turning Point that the announcers didn't identify. One had long brown hair. Another had dark stawberry blond hair. And another had blond hair and freckles. Were any of them Kim, Kyla, or Heidi? I have always wondered who they were, since they weren't followed by the documentary. They seemed very talented, although Martin Charnin didn't keep them in the running for the role.
