Karen Jezek - Associate Producer/Assistant Director/Co-founder
Karen has acted in two soap operas, playing the role of Brenda Clegg in CBS’ “Capitol” and Noel Gallager in “Rituals”, the latter of which she was nominated for “Best Ingenue” in the Soap Opera Digest Awards. A former Miss LaHabra and expert in Polynesian Dance, Karen has had the privilege of working with entertainment greats such as; Rory Calhoun, Richard Egan, Marj Dusay, Tammy Wynette, Estelle Getty, Pat Morita, Gary Collins, Lanie Kazan, and Kin Shriner. Some of her theatre credits include “Stone Soup” and “Betty Bear Saves Christmas”.

Together
After leaving Hollywood in 1988, Kenny and Karen (who met at a Hollywood party in 1986), were married in 1989 and became heavily involved in the theatrical arts ministry of a large local church, acting, planning, directing and choreographing skits and musical productions, including roles in original musical productions of “Rocky’s Place” “Johnny Bugle”, “Mystery At Windemere Mansion” and “Freedom’s Price”. They’ve also had the privilege of starring in three independent Christian films - “Forevermore-The Karla Faye Tucker Story” Karen playing the title role of Karla Faye Tucker, “A Father’s Heart” and “Come What May” the latter of which is currently being released through Advent Film Group. Through these films they have been able to use their gifts not just in acting but also in mentoring and helping other members of the casts develop their gifts in the areas of theatrical performance and production. As a husband and wife team, the Jezek’s bring a collective 40+ years of experience in stage, film, television and commercial performance and production to Command Performers.

most of what i've seen of Lars involves his annoying sister as well. as I recall, Britta held the key to saving Bo from treason charges, but wouldn't testify until her brother was safe and away from the KGB.

based on the tweets i'm seeing stating what's going on in this episode, it sounds like EJ/Sami/Dan/Jen are hogging most of the airtime, while JJ/Theresa/Hope/Rafe/Kate and anyone else who's on are mere fillers. :shame:

That was Lars' introduction, complete with the world's worst "Russian Ballet" troupe. As if the ice skating show the year before was not bad enough to set back Cold War relations a few decades, they went even lower-rent for the ballet in 1986.

After defecting, Lars formed his own troupe in Salem. IIRC, it was funded by Victor, who made him include Melissa. That led to a Melissa/Lars romance even though she was married to Pete. It ended when she hurt her knee.

The most important thing about Lars was that he provided the test dummy for the hair department to perfect the mullets they then inflicted on every other male character. Oh, and Ken Jezek's "acting" may rival Charity Rahmer's as the worst ever for a character in a major role.

Although I'm unsure about a dress that zips up the front, Sami looks nice today in that color with a simple hairstyle & subdued makeup.
