Haircut 100 was nobody's fool when casting this video

One of our favorite pastimes in watching '80s videos is finding appearances by actors and actresses early in their career before they hit stardom. Thanks to Haircut 100, we chalk up another celebrity sighting in Nobody's Fool with a "lethal" actress.

The Pelican West album is the gift that keeps giving on Lost and Found as their last single off that 1981 album, Nobody's Fool, is the third video we've featured following Love Plus One and Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl). A Top 10 hit in the U.K., Nobody's Fool contains the usual sweater-wearing antics of Haircut 100, but today's video features a young Patsy Kensit in the lead female role. And by young, I mean she was only 14 years old when the video for Nobody's Fool was released  (by the way, Haircut 100 lead singer Nick Heyward was only 21 years old at the time). Kensit started appearing on TV as early as five and by time she was a teen she was a regular on British telly. In 1989, when she was 21, she appeared as Mel Gibson's love interest on Lethal Weapon 2.

The video for Nobody's Fool is more fun from Haircut 100 as the group abandons their menial jobs as blacksmith, grave digger, fisherman and manure shoveler to hit the cricket field and wear those preppy outfits that defined the Haircut 100 fashion sense.

Kensit herself was a fool in love with four marriages under her belt - all to men in the music industry with names including Dan Donovan of Big Audio Dynamite (88-91), Simple Mind's Jim Kerr (92-96)  and Liam Gallagher of Oasis (97-00) with the latter two unions both creating a child each.
