In an interview with TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco, former Another World and Loving star Lisa Peluso discusses her upcoming role in Martha Byrne's Gotham and what she's been up to since her departure from daytime.
TVGuide.ca: Where in the world has Lisa Freakin’ Peluso been all this time?!
Lisa Peluso: Where have I been? [Laughs] I’ve been raising my two children. Since Another World, I had my son, Parker, who is now seven. My nine-year-old daughter, Phoebe, was born around the time I did One Life To Live as Gina Russo [Ed. Note: she had previously played Billie Giordano in 1987]. I’ve just been enjoying being a mom and wife. I have also been selling real estate.
TVG: Now you’ve joined Gotham. I think Martha Byrne made a very wise choice in casting you because we soap fans have missed you terribly. You are one of my all-time favourite soap actresses. Who are you playing on Gotham?
LP: Thank you. That’s nice to hear. As for Gotham, all I know is that I’m playing Michael Park’s ex-wife, Veronica. I haven’t received a script yet so there isn’t too much I can tell you.
After the jump watch clips of Loving with Amelia Heinle, Laura Wright, Catherine Hickland and Noelle Beck, among others. READ MORE
The wait is over. And the future is here this Monday at 8 p.m. ET. Gotham will finally air online in just three days. Creator, star, writer, and producer (Whew — take a breath here) Martha Byrne tells The Suds Report exclusively that several mystery soap actors will be lending their voices to the web series. “There are mystery voiceovers of future cast members in the beginning of the first episode,” reveals the Emmy winner. “The actors will not be listed in the credits so it will be a fun guessing game for the fans.” How much you want to bet one of the voices is welovesoaps.net’s Roger Newcomb whispering sweet nothings to Michael Park?! LOL! For your chance to win an autographed Gotham script, log on to The Suds Report’s Facebook page, and tell us what you thought of Byrne’s inaugural episode. If I can, I will be tweeting while I watch the first Gotham offering. As for how many episodes we can expect this season, Byrne simply says, “At this point, it’s all open-ended.”
