With their careers in high gear, Lea (Red Dawn) Thompson and her fiancé, Dennis (Dreamscape) Quaid, are planning on a long engagement, partly for logistical reasons. Lea, 23, whose film The Wild Life, with Chris Penn (Sean's brother), comes out this month, is now filming in Copenhagen in a comic detective film called Yellow Pages.

"Being engaged is like going to grammar school," she says. "Someday we'll graduate and go on to high school."
