CRYSTAL'S #1 ON TVGUIDE.COM... Is it any wonder? :D

Judging from the photo credit, that's already a DAYS promo still. Gorgeous.

ORLAGH | Started Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict today, the author translants an LA girl into an Austen novel. Orlagh goes back and forth between contemporary US and 19th century British English, fun stuff! I'm re-reading Dune in the evenings for variety's sake. :P Lady Jessica is to die for.

JESSICA | Added Natalia icons by little_ruby to the Jessica site's icon page.

CRYSTAL ON TVGUIDE.COM | Catching Up With Crystal Chappell | by Michael Logan | She's been a sensuous sensation as half of the lesbian love team "Otalia" on Guiding Light—now Crystal Chappell is set to raise a little hetero hell on her next soap gig.

Nelson Branco still loves CRYSTAL, JESSICA, OTALIA & STACY HAIDUK: Top 5 Actresses to Watch: 1. Crystal Chappell (Olivia, GL) 2. Stacy Haiduk (Patty/MJ, Y&R) | Top 4 Duos To Watch: 3. Natalia and Olivia, GL | Top 3 Passionate Fan Bases: 1. Otalia, GL.

CRYSTAL RULES DC AGAIN, JESSICA COMES IN @#4. Woohoo! | Thanks to LB for the info.

ORLAGH INTERVIEW! The gals at pancakesandavalium interviewed Orlagh, fun stuff, go have a listen. Blis, hats and wardrobe are all discussed. | For those also just now realizing the awesomeness of Orlagh's voice-acting, you need to get her audiobooks! I've been posting mini-raves about them this year, I really recommend the Maisie Dobbs novels she reads, they will make sense even if you haven't read previous novels in the series. Good writing, excellent reading, a worthy pastime. Check the samples on audible.com if you need more convincing. | Thanks to KT for the link to the interview.

Emmy's this Sunday on CW, don't forget to tune in!

Been reading (or rather been read to :D) An Incomplete Revenge: A Maisie Dobbs Novel by Jacqueline Winspear, narrated by Orlagh Cassidy. Another super mystery and Orlagh once again does a fantastic job with the characters.
