Update: Just found out that Paquin was seen in a purple robe and quite blonde so good, that will make her look more like a Dallas woman!
Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Real estate agent Todd Terry, son of Ellen, is also an actor, as I think we may have mentioned to you here a couple times. And he snagged a role in that ABC pilot produced by Reese Witherspoon that filmed here last week, “Broken”, a show that centers on a ruthless Dallas divorce attorney whose life begins to unravel when her emotionally damaged, love-addicted sister resurfaces. (Did anyone go to Hockaday? HPHS?) Long hidden family secrets are uncloaked and dug up. The character, played by brunette Anna Paquin, apparently has some skeletons in her very large master closet. (No wonder they were filming at Champ D’Or!) She also has made a fortune off “the heartbreak of wealthy Texans”.
Well, Todd plays Leo Cline. The writers won’t let him tell us much more than that, but I think he’s going to kill it: this script sounds like a hit. Except that I think Paquin’s character should be a Dallas blonde, obviously. Get some bleach.
Paquin joins a cast that includes T.R. Knight, Blair Underwood and Penelope Ann Miller. Underwood will play James, Gemma’s boss and sometimes lover; Knight will play Mark, who is competing with Gemma for the same position; and Miller will play Elizabeth Hamilton, the wife of a Texas oil billionaire who is seeking revenge after having been left for a woman 20 years younger.
ABC filmed at 4001 Turtle Creek, the Champ d’Or in Hickory Creek, and at an apartment complex on Newton Ave. I just love seeing our real estate splashed all over the big screen!
