Wow! U WON’T BELIEVE What JOB Prince’s “Purple Rain” ‘Mom’ Started At AGE 65!

Posted On : February 3, 2017

Remember Olga Karlatos Rankin from Purple Rain? Well, let us rephrase that- of course you probably don’t remember Olga- not by name that is- but if you’re old school, you probably recognize her as Prince’s ‘mother’ from the 1984. She held her own starring alongside the legendary, Clarence Williams III, who portrayed Prince’s abusive dad. And who could forget that scene when Prince walked in on his ‘dad’ using his ‘mom’ as a punching bag and quickly pulled him off of her? Olga did a helluva job in Purple Rain and her acting was intense. But today, she’s a LONG way from the Hollywood spotlight with a VERY unexpected NEW career…


Olga Rankin Before her current career was even thought of, Olga first settled into married life. She was married to the late, Arthur Rankin Jr., the wealthy, famed creator of stop-motion animation features such as the iconic Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. He's also known for creating the original animated, 1977 version of The Hobbit. But now with the celebrity lifestyle in her rearview mirror, you'll probably be shocked when you see what she's doing now.>>>
