These clips used to be on the Official ROC site but have been taken down. The quality is not good, but here they are.

MACDONALDS COMMERCIAL

Was featured in a "quarter back" promotion for the McChicken sandwich with Warren Moon. Moon is currently a broadcaster for the Seattle Seahawks and is one of only two football players to be included in both the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, and the U.S. Pro Football Hall of Fame.

1987

THE 1987 HOUSTON THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE - Cinderella

O'Connor got to dress up as Cinderella in the most incredibly strange outfit. There is a video of this in the archives of the RENEE O'CONNOR VIDEO CHANNEL.

THE BIRTH OF LANGUAGE - TV documentary

Speculative documentary on beginnings of human language. Lots of questionable reasoning. Good production though. The cast list includes someone named Renee O'Connor listed in the credits as one of the eleven "pre-historic people". According to the Official Xena Fan Club, when asked about it, Ms. O'Connor stated that she had "no memory of that". The film was made by Paul Jay for TV Ontario. If ROC was in this one, substantial makeup would have been required. The whole film is avaiable on YouTube. Here is one clip:

SIX FLAGS AMUSEMENT PARK - HOUSTON - Porky Pig

Porky Pig at Six Flags

This was O'Connor's first paid "acting" job. It might have been at SIX FLAGS OVER TEXAS in Arlington, but inasmuch as she resided near Houston, the Houston park, ASTRO WORLD, seems more likely.
