Welch iconic for her 1960s sexpot roles in films like One Million Years B.C. plays a femme fatale who lives in a fabled Hollywood apartment building dubbed The Captain, in the new TV comedy Welcome To The Captain.
And while Welch was never a tenant in a building of The Captains grandeur when she first moved to Hollywood, she did once pay a visit to vaudeville vixen Mae Wests luxurious digs.
And when Welch walked into Baby Vamps extravagant apartment building, she was totally awestruck.
Welch explains, She lived in this lavish penthouse in a fabulous building in the middle of Hollywood. And here I was, having tea with her. It was a truly memorable Hollywood experience for me.
And while Wests pad was posh, Welch says the real glamour came directly from West.
She laughs, It was one in the afternoon and we were just having tea, but she was still dolled to the max! She had the same persona in her apartment as she did in Diamond Lil!
Welcome To The Captain premieres Monday (Feb. 4) on CBS.
