TONIGHT: Lauralee Bell in V.C. Andrews’ Lifetime Movie ‘Pearl in the Mist’

Last night, daytime fans got to see their first glimpse of The Young and the Restless’ Lauralee Bell in her role as the villainess, Daphne Dumas in Lifetime’s Ruby adapted from the V. C. Andrews (Flowers in the Attic) novels.

Now on Sunday night, March 21st, Bell reprises the role of the manipulative stepmother to Ruby (Raechelle Banno) and her sister Giselle (Karina Banno) in Lifetime’s Pearl in the Mist (8pm EST/7pm CST).

Based on the second book from V.C. Andrews in the series, Pearl in the Mist finds Ruby still struggling to find true happiness, after a year of living at her father’s lavish mansion. When Ruby and her twin Giselle (Karina Banno) are sent away to an exclusive all girls boarding school, Ruby is hopeful for a new start with her sister. But when Ruby is once again shamed for her backwater upbringing, and her cruel Headmistress, Mrs. Ironwood (Henner), along with her stepmother Daphne (Bell) and Giselle continue to plot against her, Ruby must endure torturous punishments and public humiliation. Ruby holds out hope and continues to dream of a better future until tragedy leaves her alone in a world of deceits.

 

Bell told TV Insider how she compared the role of Daphne to another Y&R role she never played, and the villain of 101 Dalmatians: “She’s like Jill Abbott or Cruella de Vil. There was one line that I recall particularly. Daphne says: ‘If you don’t have anything bad to say, then don’t say anything.’ I love that line. Daphne can be a freak. My motherly instincts are to stop everything and help my kids through anything. Daphne’s instincts are not wanting to be bothered by her stepchildren. She sees them as an annoyance.  It’s fun to play something the opposite of who I am. Christine’s a little uptight and she has a strong work ethic, but Daphne is so self-centered. It’s a whole different dynamic.”

So, will you be checking out Lauralee as Daphne? Let us know via the comment section below, but first watch this teaser for Pearl in the Mist.

In my San Diego area, we got both movies on Sunday, the first one being Ruby, which I have already watched. Having read so many of her books, I did not remember either of these. I thought L.B did a very good job in her role. Except for her distinctive voice, I almost didn’t recognize her. Who knew she could play mean so we’ll? Am looking forward to the next one.

I’ve never been blown away by Bell’s portrayal of the “oh so holy” Cricket. However, she is pretty good in that clip playing a “bitch.” Maybe Bell should have been playing a dark character on Y&R all these years rather than Saint Christine.

Cameron Mathison Shares He Will Make Summer Debut On GH and Says: “Incredibly Grateful to Frank Valentini and the Writers at GH for Including Me on Such an Iconic Show”

Longtime All My Children favorite and current co-host of Hallmark’s Home & Family, Cameron Mathison, took to his Instagram account on Friday to share his enthusiasm and excitement for what’s to come this summer when he joins ABC’s General Hospital.

No word yet as to what role Mathison will play – and whether it will indeed be Pine Valley’s Ryan Lavery, a new character, or a recast character from the past such as how Kim Delaney took over the role of Jackie Templeton, who has not been seen on the canvas for decades since Demi Moore made that role soap-famous.

In his post today, Cameron expressed thanks to GH EP Frank Valentini and the writing team,  noting: “Almost 10 years after All My Children went off the air I am so excited to be joining General Hospital this summer! I was a member of the abc family for over 15 years and soon I’ll be back: Incredibly grateful to Frank Valentini and the writers at GH for including me on such an iconic show I feel like a kid on Christmas, as I’ll also continue making Hallmark movies and continue to be part of that family as well😀🙏🏼 So so excited… thank you!!!! (More details to come😉)”

So, who do you think Cameron will play once he hits Port Charles?  Let us know and make sure to take our poll below on how you want Mathison to be integrated into the story as Ryan, a new character or a recast character blast from the past? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
