daddy issues

i always wondered what happened to thora birch. she seemed to have such a promising career and then she seemed to disappear. this is completely speculative, but it seems strange that her dad has been managing her career. i can’t remember a movie she was in after Ghost World, so his management seems questionable. getting cast as a lead in Dracula seems like a huge deal, why would her dad be all up in the rehearsal process? also, why would a former porn star get upset about an actor rubbing his daughter’s back? hopefully this isn’t an insight into a mackenzie phillips-type relationship.
