    Lesson 127:A famous actress 著名的女演员

    Listen to the tape then answer this question. Who is only twenty-nine, and why is it so unclear?
    听录音,然后回答问题。谁只有29岁?为什么这件事如此含糊不清?

    KATE: Can you recognize that woman,
    Liz?
    LIZ: I think I can, Kate.
    It must be Karen Marsh,
    the actress.
    KATE: I though so.
    Who's that beside her?
    LIZ: That must be Conrad Reeves.
    KATE: Conrad Reeves, the actor?
    It's can't be.
    Let me have another look.
    I think you're right!
    Isn't he her third husband?
    LIZ: No. He must be her fourth or
    fifth.
    KATE: Doesn't Karen Marsh look old!
    LIZ: She does, doesn't she!
    I read she's twenty-nine,
    but she must be at least forty.
    KATE: I'm sure she is.
    LIZ: She was a famous actress
    When I was still at school.
    KATE: That was a long time ago,
    wasn't it?
    LIZ: Not that long ago!
    I'm not more than twenty-nine
    myself.
