After gaining international acclaim for her role in “Crocodile Dundee,” Linda Kozlowski entered the Hollywood spotlight alongside Paul Hogan. Despite the success of the “Dundee” series and a few subsequent appearances, Kozlowski gradually withdrew from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood.
Born on January 7, 1958, in Fairfield, Connecticut, Linda pursued her passion for acting at the prestigious Juilliard School. Completing her degree in 1981, she made her debut in off-Broadway productions, later transitioning to Broadway and television roles, including the television movie “Death of a Salesman” with Dustin Hoffman.
Linda’s journey to stardom faced challenges, leading her to California after a stint as a waitress.
With support from mentor Dustin Hoffman, she auditioned for and secured the role of Sue Charlton in “Crocodile Dundee.” The film’s massive success catapulted her to stardom, with initial recognition more pronounced in Australia due to the film’s early release there.
Despite her newfound fame, Linda felt overlooked in Hollywood and chose to turn down roles that typecast her. After the third “Dundee” film, she decided to step away from acting altogether.
In her personal life, Linda found love with co-star Paul Hogan, marrying in 1990 and welcoming son Chance in 1998. However, their marriage ended in 2014.
Following her divorce, Linda received a substantial settlement and redirected her focus to Morocco. There, she met Moulay Hafid Baba, a native tour guide, and together they founded the luxury travel agency Dream My Destiny in Marrakech, crafting unique itineraries for clients.
Linda Kozlowski, at 63, has transitioned from Hollywood to a fulfilling life in Morocco. While her legacy as Sue Charlton endures, she embraces the real-life adventure of the travel industry, using her intuition honed in acting to create memorable experiences for others.
