Gidley began her career in 1986, starring in Thrashin’ alongside Josh Brolin and Robert Rusler. Brolin, 50, took to Instagram to mourn his costar following her death. “My co-star in Thrashin and my girlfriend twice in a lifetime. Amazing and innocent memories of her: a spitfire, and a truly funny person she was. I remember is being in bed (I was 17) and hearing the radio come on saying that the Challenger had just exploded,” the Avengers star wrote on April 25. “These milestones in your life: amazing people to grace us with their spirit, their presence. She will have forever affected mine. Thank you for the gift of you, Pam. Rest In Peace beautiful girl.”
