Four months later...

What a whirlwind my life has been since my last day on D.O.O.L. It's already been four months (can you believe it?) and I feel like it was just yesterday that I was filming my final scenes.

I know I've been quiet lately, mainly because of how busy I've been with my upcoming projects, but I've finally found a moment to catch you up on what I've been up to since I left "chelsea" behind.

As I'm sure most of you have heard, in early June I was to cast to play the character Annie on NBC's "Heroes". While I can't give away storyline, I can tell you that Annie is introduced as Claire's college roomate on the season four premire, which I believe will air sometime in early-mid September. My experience on this set has been an extremely positive one. The "Heroes" cast and crew are remarkably fun, and I was excited to transition back into the world of primetime television. I can't believe how much different it is than working on a soap- I almost forgot! I really hope you guys enjoy watching this character as much as I enjoyed portraying her. She is so different than Chelsea, as well as most of the other characters I've been fortunate enough to play. She's definitely one of a kind and in my opinion, quite funny. So stayed tuned for the season premire, and I will keep you posted as to the exact air date once it becomes available.

I'm also really excited to share with you news of my most recent project, which I'll begin filming later this month in Victora, BC. I play a vampy, Gossip Girl-esque teen, bored with life, willing to test the boundaries and flirt with danger, no matter the consequences. I'm very excited about this project and can't wait to start filming. As for actual project information including its' title...well, I'll stay mysterious for now. :)

Going back to the world of soaps for a brief moment, I had my fitting for my emmy dress today, which I am very excited to hop into come awards ceremony time. It's absolutely gorgeous! It's designed by Randolph Duke, a very talented individual, who's work I can't wait to show off on August 30th! So far, everything pertaining to the Emmys is going smoothy, I'll even be lucky enough to take a break from filming to return to LA for the evening. (Hopefully to witness a few wins on the DOOL front).

In regards to my personal life, Murphy and I are still overly content in our relatively new apartment, I'm still happily dating the Handsome Man, as I commonly refer to him, and I'm enjoying my downtime finding new things to do to keep me out of this summer heat!

Hope everyone is well, and once again, thanks for all your support :)

All the best,
