Jonathan Brandis was very good in this.

R4, no, it was made for The Family Channel back in the day. It's pretty PG

Joan is channeling Olivia. Were their voices always similar?

"On November 11, 2003, Brandis was found hanged in the hallway of his Los Angeles apartment. He was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and died the following day of injuries sustained from the hanging. He was 27 years old.

Brandis did not leave a suicide note. After his death, friends reported that he had been depressed about his waning career and was reportedly disappointed when his appearance in the 2002 war drama Hart's War, a role he hoped would revive his career, was significantly reduced in the film's final cut. Brandis began drinking heavily and said that he intended to kill himself."

Fontaine didn't turn into a fattie in her old age like Olivia did and kept a very lean figure. Here she is, aged 89.

Their voices were a little similar. Not that much. You can hear their mother in The Lost Weekend, she plays Jane Wyman's mother in the film (she has one scene) - Lilian Fontaine. The mother sounds a little bit like Olivia.
