Whatever Happened to Leslie Bega From ‘Head of the Class’?

Then: Leslie Bega played high strung Maria Borges on ‘Head of the Class.’ As you can see, her Borges character had clearly perfected the right amount of hair spray to achieve that famous ’80s look. Before ‘Head of the Class,’ Bega appeared on shows like ‘The Twilight Zone’ and ‘Highway to Heaven,’ and breakdanced in the movie ‘Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo.’

Now: Any actress who once sported gloriously big hair was destined to appear in a New Jersey-based show, and Bega’s most high profile post-‘Head of the Class’ role has been as Tony’s mistress Valentina la Paz on ‘The Sopranos.’ Bega continues to act, and was recently in the TV movie ‘Blind Dog.’
