GENERAL HOSPITAL star Julie Marie Berman (Lulu) will be moonlighting this week: the Emmy winner has landed a guest-starring role in the new Nickelodeon show BUCKET & SKINNER’S EPIC ADVENTURES! According to Berman’s Official Facebook Fan Page, she began rehearsals on Friday and tapes her appearance on the live show this week.
The teen sitcom — debuting on Friday, July 1 — is a comedy about two surf buddies navigating the trials and tribulations of high school. “I’m playing Vera, the older sister of Aloe. Har, har,” Berman tells Soaps In Depth with a smile. Vera is a world-class surfer and international celebrity, who returns to town to be honored by the mayor. But Aloe’s jealousy of her turns everything into a competition, as he tries to upstage Vera’s big day and focus the attention back on himself!
A Nickelodeon rep says that at this time, Berman is only scheduled for a one-time appearance, but that is subject to change in the future. And as for the rumors that Berman is exiting Port Charles, the actress assures In Depth that “I have no plans on leaving in the near future.”
As soon as we know when Berman’s episode of BUCKET & SKINNER’S EPIC ADVENTURES will air, we’ll pass it on!
