Following her appearance in “Crocodile Dundee,” Linda Kozlowski became well-known worldwide. The movie, in which she co-starred with Paul Hogan, was a pivotal moment in her career. However, Kozlowski progressively faded from the Hollywood spotlight following the “Dundee” series and a few subsequent appearances.
Linda Kozlowski, who was born in Fairfield, Connecticut, on January 7, 1958, decided to hone her acting skills by enrolling in the prestigious Juilliard School theatrical school. She made her stage debut in several off-Broadway musicals after earning her degree in 1981. She eventually moved on to bit parts on Broadway and television, notably “Death of a Salesman,” a television film in which she costarred with Dustin Hoffman.
Linda faced obstacles on her path to fame. She left her part in “Death of a Salesman,” working as a waitress, and relocated to California. During this time, Dustin Hoffman, who had grown to serve as her mentor, and his wife extended an invitation for her to stay at their beachfront home in Malibu. From there, Linda started an audition that would permanently alter her life.
Linda was suggested by Dustin Hoffman for the part of Sue Charlton in “Crocodile Dundee,” which she successfully auditioned for. The movie was a resounding success, bringing in almost $320 million on a $10 million budget, and essentially overnighting Linda Kozlowski to stardom. It’s interesting to note that due to the film’s early release in Australia, her fame was initially greater there.
Linda didn’t think she was given the respect she deserved in Hollywood despite her sudden fame. She continued to perform in the “Crocodile Dundee” sequels despite declining numerous offers for parts that stereotypically placed her as a comedy actor’s girlfriend. After the third “Dundee” movie, Linda made the decision to stop acting entirely.
During the “Crocodile Dundee” series, Linda Kozlowski fell in love with her co-star Paul Hogan. They were married in 1990, and in 1998 they had a boy they called Chance. But their union disintegrated in 2014.
After her split from Paul Hogan, Linda Kozlowski made the decision to live her life alone. She was awarded a sizable payment and made the decision to change her direction. She focused on Morocco and met a local tour guide named Moulay Hafid Baba there. Their instant bond caused a tremendous transformation in their lives.
In Marrakech, Linda and Moulay Hafid Baba founded the opulent tourism business Dream My Destiny. They design distinctive travel plans that are based on the tastes of their customers. Linda’s life had changed from Hollywood to the allure of Morocco’s scenery.
Although Linda Kozlowski left the acting industry, her legacy as Sue Charlton in “Crocodile Dundee” endures. She made the decision to enjoy her adventurous and satisfying life in Morocco at the age of 63. She focuses on her work in the tourism sector, where her acting-honed intuition is crucial in helping others have unforgettable experiences, and finds real life to be more fulfilling than fiction.
