DEAR STACY: Besides marrying Winston Marshall, what has Dianna Agron of "Glee" fame been up to? — dlore

DEAR dlore: Agron has been busy with a string of films including the recently released "The Crash" thriller, set in the American financial system, and the Sundance Festival flick "Novitiate," in which she plays a young nun in a convent. Ahead she has another thriller, called "Headlock" with Andy Garcia, and the drama "Hollow in the Land." Meanwhile, her husband's group, Mumford & Sons, is getting ready to go back on the road on summer tour, and she's likely to be along for at least part of that. And Agron will no doubt remain busy with her activities on behalf of animals, the LGBT community and refugees. You may recall she visited a settlement of Syrian refugees in Europe last May, and has been very vocal about their plight.

DEAR STACY: Whatever happened to Audra Lindley of "Three's Company"? — Terry G., Springfield, Massachusetts

DEAR TERRY: The Broadway and television actress passed away in 1997 due to complications from leukemia. She was 79, and still doing recurring roles on two series ("Cybill" and "Nothing Sacred") the same year she died.

DEAR STACY: "The Bachelor" producer is Mike Fleiss. My friend says that he is Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss' brother. Is that true? — VoS

DERA VoS: No, the reality show producer is a second cousin of the notorious Heidi.

DEAR STACY: Can you please tell me what happened that put Danny Trejo in prison? What were the circumstances? — Sylvia_F

DEAR SYLVIA_F: The actor and taco restaurateur, who has appeared in many of the films directed by Robert Rodriguez, a second cousin of his, did indeed do time, for armed robbery and various drug offenses. In fact, he was in and out of jail for 11 years, as he struggled with addiction from childhood on. While in San Quentin, he became a champion boxer and completed a successful 12-step program. Once he was out, he counseled others, and his efforts led him to the set of 1985's "Runaway Train" with Eric Roberts. He was offered a job as an extra to play a convict and since the movie's theme was boxing, he began giving Roberts tips. After the director noticed, Trejo was cast opposite Roberts and has worked in Hollywood since.
