OLTL's Bree Williamson Lands Role as a Shrink on SyFy's, Haven!

One of our favorite actresses, Bree Williamson ( Jessica, One Life to Live) is putting away her days of playing a woman with a serious mental illness … DID …  and moving on to playing the other side of it – playing a mental therapist in her new role in the upcoming season of SyFy’s, Haven!

According to TV Line,  the supernatural show story editors, Lilla and Nora Zuckerman revealed the Williamson casting info this past Sunday on WormholeRiders.net’s BlogTalk Radio podcast.   “She is playing Haven‘s resident shrink.  We talk about (Adam “Edge” Copeland’s character) Dwight being the ‘cleaner,’ and  Claire (Williamson’s role)  is in a way the ‘mental cleaner,”  the duo stated.   Haven‘s 13-episode Season 3 is slated to bow later this year.

For those not familiar with the backdrop of the series Haven here is what you need to know! “Syfy’s one-hour drama series Haven, starring Emily Rose (Jericho, Brothers and Sisters) is based on the novella The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King. The series follows the shrewd and confident FBI agent Audrey Parker (Rose) who has a lost past, and arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine on a routine case. Before long, her natural curiosity lands her in the epicenter of activity in this curious enclave, which turns out to be a longtime refuge for people that are affected by a range of supernatural afflictions.   As the townspeople’s dormant abilities begin to express themselves, Audrey helps keep these forces at bay while discovering the many secrets of Haven — including one surrounding her own surprising connections to this extraordinary place.”

So what do you think of Bree playing a “shrink” after playing so many alters?  We kind of dig the idea!

Lori Loughlin Returns To Acting; Set To Reprise ‘When Calls The Heart’ Role in GAC Family’s ‘When Hope Calls’

Former Fuller House, Edge of Night, and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin, has landed her first acting role since jail time and her part in the College Admissions Scandal; where she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid half a million dollars in bribes to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, accepted into the University of Southern California.

While, Jade is now also in this season’s Dancing with the Stars, now comes word that Loughlin has gotten her first acting gig since all the legal trouble, and while still on probation following her two months in jail.

Look for Lori to reprise her beloved role of Abigail from When Calls the Heart on its season two spin-off on GAC Family, When Hope Calls.

According to Deadline: Loughlin will appear in the two-part Season 2 premiere titled When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas, to air on Saturday, December, 18th.  Lori was last seen on TV as Abigail in Season 6 of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart before she was let go over her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Last week, speculation began that Loughlin may be back working after a report surfaced from Mercury News  that she had been granted permission by a Boston federal judge to travel to Canada for about a week in late September-early October for “a filming production project.”

So, what do you think about Lori’s return to acting following serving jail time? Will you be watching her as Abigail on When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas? Comment below.

She went on to say, “It’s so overwhelming because it’s Sunday and the show’s tomorrow. I figured I should let you guys know since I’ve been as open and as a real and as vulnerable as I could be here.  I just hope I didn’t spread it. For those of you who don’t think COVID is a real thing, it’s f–king real, dude.”

The pro dancer also related how upset she was to let her celebrity partner, Cody Rigsby, down by having to exit the show for now.
