I also have an excerpt from an article about Emily’s upcoming TV movie Beyond the Blackboard that features some quotes from Emily and Stacey Bess (the woman Emily portrays in the movie):
Bess said she enjoyed interacting with Emily VanCamp, the Catholic actress featured in the TV series “Brothers and Sisters” and “Everwood,” who plays her in the movie. “I really enjoyed Emily portraying me. I don’t know who made this great choice, but she has great character, she’s very silly, she’s very strong and she’s very warm. Those are qualities I’m looking for when I’m looking for a teacher,” she noted. “She warmed my heart as I watched her. It was a delight.”
It grew into a mutual admiration society.
“The first moment that I met Stacey, I had this overwhelming feeling of intimidation, of, you know, wanting to live up to her expectations and to who she is and, you know, two minutes into the conversation it was, to me anyway, it was like we were old friends. You know, there was a really strong, deep connection and she’s just lovely and hilarious and so much fun to be around,” VanCamp said in an on-set interview furnished by Hallmark Hall of Fame.
Bess is “just a great inspiration to all of us,” VanCamp added. “I love having her around and I like be able to pick her brain and ask her questions about, you know, what really happened and, you know, how to interpret things properly.”
And lastly, Warner Brothers finally released the cover art for the Everwood: The Complete Fourth Season DVD! Just click on the thumb to the left to get a closer look at the beautiful cover. The DVD set, which will reportedly include deleted scenes and the alternate ending of season four, is scheduled to hit store shelves on August 2nd.
