Fan favorite Jill Larson (Opal) underwent a dramatic physical transformation when she appeared in the thriller “Shutter Island) last year. (If you haven’t seen it, be sure and rent the DVD right away!)
Now she takes on another role: that of a not-so-nice nun on the popular ABC Prime Time Drama, “Desperate Housewives.”
ABC Soaps In Depth recently spoke to Jill about the “nasty nun” experience:
She says, “I had the good fortune to do it on a show of this quality, which made the conquest, if you will, all the sweeter! She called and said they were casting a part of a nun and said it would be kind of fun and thought maybe I’d be good for that. So I called my agent and left a message, and within a day, they had an appointment for me. Everyone was very kind, and then the next day, my agent called and said they were booking me. I was thrilled!”
The episode in which Jill guest stars is called “Farewell Letter” and will air on February 20th at 9pm EST, so set your DVR!
