Joni Dourif: Who was Brad Dourif's second wife?

Who is Joni Dourif?

Joni Dourif is an American psychic, or, as others might term it, a remote viewer. Some sources describe this as a demonstration of innate psychic abilities, while others term it a technology. She, however, studied clinical psychology at the University of California. Putting that aside for now, Joni Dourif was also recognised for being married to the famous American actor, Bradford Claude Dourif. Again, she is known to be the mother of famous actress Fiona Dourif, a beautiful young lady.

Joni Dourif was born and reared in the Hawaiian Islands, attended school in Lausanne, Switzerland, and speaks French and Spanish quite well. She presently lives in Beverly Hills, California, and runs her businesses there as well as in Seattle, Washington, Maui, Hawaii, and Dublin, the Republic of Ireland. Joni Dourif’s date and place of birth are quite difficult to come across, as she probably prefers to keep that a secret. She was, however, formally married to Ed Dames, the former president of Psi Tech, but they divorced at some point. Joni married Brad Dourif in 1981 and also got divorced in 1986.

Joni’s husband was formally married to another woman named Janet Stephanie, with whom they bore a child, Kristina Dourif. Joni, however, welcomed her as one of her own, and Kristina and Fiona also got along very well as siblings.

Joni Dourif has worked in many areas of human endeavours

Joni Dourif is a qualified remote viewer with clinical psychology training, with a focus on Jungian clinical psychology. When the newly established Betty Ford Centre, which focuses on addiction and compulsive compulsion, offered an internship, she first obtained a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology but departed before finishing it.

Joni, whose family has roots in the entertainment business, worked in various facets of the industry for a number of years in the 1970s. She was given the task of commercialising PSI TECH and technical remote viewing for the civilian market in 1993 and was appointed vice president of the organisation, moving it to Beverly Hills, California. She was instrumental in creating the TRV training procedures and video training DVDs that made this technology available to the general public.

Joni Dourif became PSI TECH’s president in June 1999, after Major Ed Dames’ retirement. She has played a key role in the company’s leadership in the areas of PSI and mind technology. With Dane Spotts as an executive partner, PSI TECH joined forces with Mind-Tek Research in July 2000, establishing a successful research and development division.

Joni Dourif is a mother of two

As mentioned earlier, Joni Dourif has two children, Fiona and Kristina; Fiona is her biological daughter with actor Brad Dourif, and Kristina is her daughter from Brad’s former marriage with Janet Stephanie. Not much is known about the life of Kristina; nevertheless, Fiona was born on October 30, 1981. She started acting when she was just 13 years old and is currently a movie producer and actress.

Fiona’s roles as Bart Curlish in Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency on BBC America and as the young Diane Jones in Dustin Lance Black’s When We Rise are well-known. She starred as Nica Pierce in the 2013 horror film Curse of Chucky, its follow-up Cult of Chucky, and the television series Chucky, all of which are part of the Child’s Play franchise. She makes appearances in these works alongside her father, Brad Dourif, who plays the series’ main antagonist, Chucky. She has also made appearances on Showtime’s Shameless and in a recurring role on NBC’s The Blacklist. She was selected to play the role of Good Leader Tavis in the USA television series The Purge.

Joni Dourif’s marriage to Brad Dourif was her second

Joni Dourif, according to some sources, was married to Ed Dames, the former president of PSI Tech and a fellow psychologist. Not much is known about him or if Joni was actually married to him.

Although it is confirmed that she was married to actor Bradford Dourif in 1981, Bradford Joan Mavis Felton, an actress, and Jean Henri Dourif, an art collector who ran a dye business, were the parents of Claude Dourif, who was born in Huntington, West Virginia, on March 18, 1950.

Dourif attended the exclusive Aiken Preparatory School in Aiken, South Carolina, from 1963 to 1965. He followed his talents by performing and painting there. Although he briefly pondered becoming a flower arranger, his mother’s involvement as an actress in a community theatre production of Give Me Shelter ultimately served as his inspiration to pursue acting.

Following Aiken, Joni Dourif’s ex-husband went to Fountain Valley School in Colorado Springs, where he eventually earned his diploma in 1968. In 1969, Dourif participated in the Fountain Valley Short Festival as an amateur and won second place for his 10-minute short “Blind Date” in the 8 mm category. Dourif briefly attended Marshall University before dropping out and, on the recommendation of the actress Conchata Ferrell, relocating to New York City to pursue a career in acting.

Brad Dourif is well-known for portraying the voice of Chucky in the Child’s Play series from 1988 to the present. Wise Blood (1979), Ragtime (1981), Dune (1984), Blue Velvet (1986), Mississippi Burning (1988), The Exorcist III (1990), Sworn to Justice (1996) alongside Cynthia Rothrock, Alien Resurrection (1997), and the 2007 remake of Halloween and its sequel are just a few of the numerous movies in which Brad Dourif has appeared. Additionally, he had several television appearances, most notably in the series Deadwood (2004–2006, 2019), for which his performance of Amos “Doc” Cochran garnered him nominations for Primetime Emmys and Satellite Awards.
